Mellow Mushroom on Henderson is Closed

Mellow Mushroom's bad acid trip in Dallas is over.

As of yesterday, there is one less location of Mellow Mushroom. According to an eagle-eyed Facebook friend, the hippie-style pizza spot on Henderson abruptly closed yesterday. The staff was called into a meeting and told the restaurant was closed. According to the website, the pizza joint “began from humble roots, born out of the free-wheelin’ hippy culture of the 1970s.” The first pizzeria opened in Atlanta in 1974.

I guess the original stoners shed their hippie roots when they figured they could roll out close to 120 locations across the United States and Kardashian out with their House of Shroom clothing line. Nobody answered the phone when I called last night, and the Dallas Mellow Mushroom Facebook has disappeared. The Dallas location was open a little over five months. The Frisco store is still groovin’.

    Interesting. Usually there aren’t quality issues with a chain restaurant. It didn’t help that there were already three or four great pizza places within a mile.

    I grew up in Atlanta and this has been my favorite pizza for 30 years. I have been to MM joints all over the country and have been waiting for the Dallas location to open so I didn’t have to drive to Frisco or Southlake. Finally made it to this one on Saturday for dinner and all the Yelp reviews were true. Food was good but service was terrible. They seemed to have 5-6 cooks and only three waiters. The place was hardly busy (maybe a qtr of the tables with customers and it still took way too long to get an order placed and for the pizza to come out. So disapointed. Now its back to Frisco.

    Maybe, just maybe, they should not have forced their customers to pay for valet parking when they drove to eat there. Just a thought…

    MM in Rockwall is still open, too. While I didn’t wish this on MM Henderson, my experience is that the kitchen staff needed to be fired.

    unfortunate, and the staff getting no notice sad as well
