Being a Mellow Mushroom the decor is awful. Broken bits of hot neon colored pottery cover the walls. Obviously not known for their decor. Food is excellent best pizza in town in my book. Beer selection is really good for Winston-Salem...I mean excellent. Victory golden Monkey, hop devil, v lager Fullers london porter, Flying Dog Gonzo on tap, brooklyn black chocolate, And Brookklyn lager, local fav’s like Foothills seeing double IPA (in a pint glass unlike foothills itselff serves in a little pilzen glass) HOWEVER - BE WARNED. They do an AWFUL job of upkeep with their beers. Frequently spoiled (Spoiled hop devil wasn’t all that bad actually) or flat they do a terrible job of rotating kegs...some of this I know is because we are in BMC wasteland out here and buying an expensive keg of beer and no one drinking it because they’d rather drink BudLight is...understandable, so it isn’t all their fault (unless you’re a republican pragmatist) But they try somewhat. Service is usually slow. Food ROX and when the beer is good this is the best beer and pizza place within a hundred miles.
A cafeteria style place, and a bit of a goldfish bowl, that lacks the usual cosiness and warmth of Mellow Mushrooms. Apart from that, it’s as you’d expect with pizzas and a long beer list.

The bar has an excellent tap selection, arguably the best in Winston-Salem. Great variety of styles, and though they focus on regionals they will have a variety geographically. I’ve never been a fan of Mellow Mushroom pizza: often greasy and insanely overpriced. You could go just for a beer, but I feel odd going into a pizzeria and staying at the bar.

Next door to Foothills, which we went to after Sexual Chocolate because it was such a nightmare to get food served to us that day. This place has a much more diverse tap list than Foothills and carries 4-5 Foothills beers on tap. So you get the best of both worlds. Pizzas were decent, filling, odd topping. Ambiance is trippy, uncomfortable. Service was below average. Probably has the best tap list in Winston-Salem.
I’ve been here a few times, but never gave it a review. Alot of the times the service is hit or miss, but today’s stop was stellar. I sat at the "bar" and the guy working there was quick and helpful. Got the steak and cheese calzone. Excellent. I’ve always been pleased with the food whenever I’ve stopped at one of these places.
This specific ’Shroom has 32 beers on tap. Nice! I saw some from Rogue, Avery, DFH, Starr Hill, SN, Bell’s, Foothills, Natty Greene’s, etc. It looked as if the brews came out in frosted glasses. Seriously?! With a stellar lineup like they had, I’m surprised they stooped so low. Ah well. Still a great place to stop for a great beer. Recommend.

Beer was good, food was good, sdervice was a little slow.
Used to be a lunch spot during school... awesome pizza and a nice selection of beers. Service was always good and friendly here, and the bar is a pretty nice place to hang out. Not the best Mellow I’ve been to but definitely not the worst.
