Just great pizza in one of the most unusual settings in Fl, maybe in the USA! The service is always good; when there is live music, and the little rag -a-muffin kids of patrons are running around, and it is raining on the open air patio and the tin roof next to the greenhouse...well life just... read more

This is a very popular place to have pizza in Gainesville along with the 3 million other pizza restaurants. It is funky, eclectic maybe...and the salad with the house dressing is fabulous. To me, the pizza is ok, but so many other people love it....must be different strokes for different folks!

This unique pizza place offers you a very fun and interesting way to dine. From sitting in the back of a 1965 Ford Falcon van, outside seating to indoors where there is A/C which is always appreciated here in FL. The menu like it's surrounding is very fun to. From pizza made with toppings like Zucchini to calzones to fresh... More

We go to Satchel's a couple of times a month - if we can get in! Pizza is the best and the salad is even better - add in a bottle of Pink Truck and i am all set!

Satchel's pizza is a community favorite! They are consistently on point with flavorful pizza and absolutely amazing salad!! The salad dressing is the best and can be purchased by the bottle so you can use it on your salads at home. The lunch special of a salad and a slice is affordable for business professionals on their lunch hour, but... More

Satchel's offers a $6.75 lunch special which is a pizza with one topping and a salad. That alone is not impressive but the food you receive and the place they serve it to you is. The pizza is fresh tasting and the toppings are generous. The salad has apples, various nuts, lettuce, and a light tasty dressing. The actual restaurant... More

This is not fine dining but sheer delight! After an exhausting college tour , my son and I set our GPS to find this Junkyard Museum pizza palace.....we were lucky enough to snag an inside air conditioned table. Menu is pizza, calzone and salad......but what a pizza! Delicious thin crust, fresh ingredients and a great Southern sweet tea! The place... More

A smallish dining room is the only air conditioned seating for this expansive restaurant, so we had time to explore while waiting for our table. The huge outside area features a separate bar and live music venue behind, along with a funky gag/nostalgia gift shop out back. There's a cozy booth IN the gift shop and a repurposed truck in...

the atmosphere makes up for any shortcomings in the food. Pizza sauce is too spicy (ie pepper) for my taste and there is no other option. Don't like the fact they don't take electronic payments. Though the waitress was very nice and let me come back to pay a few days later.
