Satchel's Pizza is one of those must do things when you're in Gainesville. There's a reasonably good chance you will have to wait for a table in the restaurant because this place is so popular, especially on the weekends. The hostess will take your name and cell number, then text you when your table is ready. Just wandering around the... More

This is always a fun place, from the ambiance to the people you dine with. Very 60s and very ecclectic furnishing. All the food is homemade and is fine and good. Satchels is a integral part of Gainesville and no one should leave Gainesville without trying it.

Satchels Pizza has an awesomely unique vibe. You have a cool van in the front, that you can eat in!! Then you have tons of repurposed art. Just a cool atmosphere. The salads and pizzas are super yummy!! The only con I can find is they are a bit pricey for pizza. But I think it's worth the price... They... More

This is a Gainesville must! It’s a crazy little pizza joint – the décor is fun and funky and the pizza and salad are fantastic. So is the service (the employees are paid a living wage). Don't miss live music out back in Lightnin' Salvage or Satchel's house-made soda. If there is a long wait at the restaurant, you can... More

I had taken some friends to this Pizza/Italian spot who have never been there before. It was not so much to enjoy their great food but to experience probably one of the most unusual places to eat. This is something you do not want to miss and you probably wont since there is always a wait for your table which... More

The atmosphere was fun for all ages and the flavor of the pizza was MMMMMM--POW some of the best!! NEGATIVE: DO NOT order water as you will be sent to a water cooler in which the spicket that the water comes from is covered in mold!!!! YUKK!! 😷😱😩

You know a place is going to be great when the dessert menu is presented on a viewfinder! Had a vegan, gluten-free pesto pizza which tasted phenom! Can't wait to go back!

Don't get me wrong - the pizza is heeeeavy! Deep dish all the way. And really good. But I am not the biggest fan of the atmosphere. While some may call it eclectic and modern, I call it hippy and a proverbial side of Gainesville that is only one of many faces my hometown has to offer. Yes, the "hippy"... More

Go this place, eat your huge deep dish pizza with 3 other friends in a van outside, and leave, period.

Satchel's regular pizzas are good, but the deep dish is wonderful. Their special salad has a multitude of ingredients and is shareable. The place itself is worth the trip, with a mish mash of furniture and unusual decorations it's a treat to visit. Lightnin' Salvage, at the rear of the property, has entertainment sometimes planned, sometimes not, but always fun.... More
