Tucked away out of the mainstream eating areas of Gainesville Florida this Pizza place has the best pizzas we have tasted. Pizzas freshly made to order and the house salad is fantastic. Service great, place spotless and very quirky, worth a visit for this alone. Looking forward to eating there again on our next visit and would definitely recommend it.

Fun, quirky atmosphere with great food. The only downside is that they only accept cash, so come prepared. Luckily, there's an ATM on the premises, just in case. Overall, it was a great experience and we'll definitely will be back.

Unless you're uptight and/or don't like pizza, then you must experience Satchel's to know why locals not only frequent it regularly, but proclaim their loyalty by displaying bumper stickers with clever sayings ("sorry I'm late for work, but I was at Satchel's,I'd rather be at Satchel's", etc.) It's no wonder the place is crowded from early evening on, with a...

Going old school on this. This place is incredible. The pizza is freshly made and adjustable to your taste. This is an old school 60's type place that is fun and fantastic. Sit outside in the old van. Lightening salvage bar is in the bar and is a great place to hang out. Don't miss this great place while in... More

An eclectic assortment of novelties capture the eye. A bit of nostalgia combined with a whimsical atmosphere puts you in the perfect mood to enjoy some of the best pizza and salad ever!

Satchels from the parking lot to the restaurant is a trip. There are decorations all around with color, humor, and creativity. The pizzas and salads are fresh and just as creative as the decorations. You can choose to eat in a tree, a van, and even a greenhouse. The whole experience is just plain fun. A visit there should be... More

Going to Satchel's is a trip back in time when the only place to get a good slice was at a local pizza shop. Fresh home made pies and salads. Home made soda. A very friendly staff. A must visit when in Gainesville.

Satchel's Pizza has great pizza and salads! It has sort of a fun, funky/ hippy atmosphere (complete with old van parked in front) there is also a large covered outside area in the back with a bar as well. It's off the beaten path a little but well worth the visit!

I haven't been to Satchels in awhile but I highly recommend it for food made with fresh local ingredients in a fun atmosphere. Seating includes an old van in front. Decoration is what I would call kitch cool - colorful, happy. It's a great family place as well as being completely comfortable for everyone else. Casual seating. Whole pizzas or... More

This is a local pizza place that I'm told is popular with the university students. It was not bad during the lunch crowd on a Tuesday but I have heard it fills up fast and the wait can be long, so it is best to hit it early. The pizza was good and and they will sell you a large... More
