It is certainly an improvement over the crappy ass old "historic" gas station...  8)
In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

Caught the Redeye flight from LAX-ATL last Thursday evening with a guy that helps get these Mellow Mushrooms open on the East Coast and was coming to JAX for this one.  He seemed to be really pumped for these franchise owners just knowing all the hoops they had to jump through.

Are there any bikeracks?
Or did they have to be sacrificed?

I drove thru the area today and unfortunately it took me 2 hours to go 2 blocks due to the traffic and riff raff in the area due to this pizza restaurant.  Of course we knew this was going to be the case.

There are bike racks in front AND outdoor seating.......

Good crowd there Saturday night, great to see the place happening and an improvement for sure.

Went by about 6 last night. Parking was atrocious. I had to walk almost ten feet to get to the door. Beautiful place. Hugh selection on tap. The Mighty Meaty pie was very good. Very personable folks working the bar. I like it...Good job Mellow

Went by around 2pm yesterday.  I couldn't believe my eyes there were 14 open spots to choose from at the Shoppes.   :o
