The same love for pizza and beer that fueled three college students in 1974 transformed their lives as they expanded their business from one rundown building in Atlanta to about 150 Mellow Mushroom restaurants across 15 states today. Each eatery owes its individual style to each location being locally owned and operated, much like impressionist painters owed their individual style to their number of ears. In the kitchens, chefs assemble grilled and deli-style hoagies and bake calzones and pizzas in stone hearths using dough made with natural spring water. Though many of the restaurant's dishes have remained on the menu since its inception, the culinary crew frequently devises new, often gluten-free, dishes to keep senior-ranking pepperonis from becoming too powerful. Servers pair dishes with their location's own set of local brews, which fit into a collection of up to 50 microbrewed beers on tap and in bottles. Brewers such as Bell's, Abita, and Dogfish Head are also featured in regular beer events.

Introduce your taste buds to Italy’s flavors with an order of garlicky cheesy knots with marinara ($3.99) before sending them on the tour of Italy, a trio of the eatery's favorite pasta dishes: lasagna, fettuccini alfredo, and baked cheese ravioli ($13.99). Lil Anthony's pizzas come in traditional varieties, such as classic meat lover's ($13.99 and up) and gourmet varieties, such as the Joey's Brooklyn special, adorned with alfredo sauce, spinach, tomato, bacon, and mozzarella ($12.99 and up).

Stucco walls arranged to reveal the brick underneath frame tall, arched doorways and give Pannullo's Italian Restaurant the air of the old country. The Tuscan-style décor accents a menu of traditionally prepared veal, seafood, and chicken entrees, each doused in marinara, wine, or cream sauces. Beneath the awnings in the front of the restaurant, diners can enjoy al-fresco meals surrounded by wrought iron and leafy plants that have been trained not to beg for scraps.
