Our family loves Mello Mushroom pizza - we add pepperoni to the Kosmic Karma speciality for our favorite pie. There was a mixup in our order but the manager made it right - truly customer service oriented.

We went here for lunch and it was delicious. Lots of variety and speciality pizzas. The inside had a fun atmosphere. The staff was very friendly and gave us suggestions of places to visit in the area.

It is quality food but just too overpriced. The service is decent and they do have a good selection of both beer as well as pizza

We accidentally found this restaurant six years ago and would not consider visiting Lexington without eating here. We are only sorry that we live 575 miles away!
