Pizza Place

“Even though it's a chain pizza place, they still have really good pizza. The drink selection is also very localized and great selection! If anything, go to check out the unique ambiance and decor of this Mellow location! It is a small restaurant, so expect wait times during peak hours, especially on weekends.”

“Very small menu (and I mean small), however it's a very unique menu with excellent food! Chicken 'N' Dumplins are very good, as are the hoecakes & sorghum butter. Every menu item here is as local as you can get, and fresh. Highly recommend looking up the menu before going, just to make sure there's something you'll eat. Good wine selection.”
