These vaguely hippie-themed pizza restaurants are fixtures on college campuses throughout the Southeast. Nashville's franchise is clean and inviting, offering a tasty product at reasonable prices. The extensive menu includes calzones, salads, sandwiches and a choice of 10 "specialty" pizzas, or you can make your own pie from a list of 30 ingredients (including portobello mushrooms, pesto, jerk chicken and tempeh). The sandwiches are excellent, though Yankee diners will surely balk at what passes for a hoagie. Mellow Mushroom has 22 beers on tap, 40 different bottled varieties and a full bar.
