One type of salad, only homemade sodas (which my group didn't like) and a very limited variety of pizza. Pizza was good, but, really this place shines for its atmosphere not its food in my opinion. It's best suited for kids with a toy shop and playground. I won't be back unless I'm brining kids. However, loys of people LOVE... More

Satchel's Pizza is quirky, with lots of items to ogle while waiting for a table in the Lighting Salvage store. It's eclectic and a lot of fun. The food is delicious and the prices are great, especially the lunch special! The salad is awesome! Hmmm, homemade desserts! Try it, you'll love it!

Every time we come to Gainesville, we eat at Satchel's. The eclectic atmosphere never gets boring. It's like an art junkyard! I LOVE the Satchel Salad, so many delicious bits in it. The pizza crust is thin with a thick and chewy outer crust. It just tastes fresh. The large is 8 HUGE slices! We have not had the deep... More

I attended UF from 2005-2006 and this was my friends' and my FAVORITE place to eat! I returned recently to UF for the homecoming game and absolutely HAD to eat at Satchel's! It is still exactly how I remember it (with some added features!). The staff is always friendly, helpful, and energetic. The pizza is AMAZING (and salads and desserts... More

Pizza sauce is very distinctive not a flavor that I like the crust is excellent the service is always good but it gets very boring going into a place that only really serves pizza and salad you can get a calzone but they're very expensive for what you get

The pizza as good and the slices are very large. It's a very funky place with lots to look at. We got to eat in the van and that was a fun experience. I couldn't resist the desserts but had to take it to go. I got the carmel apple cheesecake bar and it was delicious.

We had a group of ten and they easily accommodated us. We each ordered something different and everything was delicious. The slices of pizza were HUGE! Their signature salad is delicious. They also have several homemade sodas on tap. They did require one bill and an 18% gratuity for a group our size. What intrigued me was the cool art... More

Every time I've ever been here, it's been great. Calling ahead and picking up to go is advisable if you're only in it for the pizza. If you have the time, this is a wonderful place to hang out and enjoy a very unique atmosphere (inside and out)--it's a genuine place with very good service and great food. I am... More
