Best Pizza and Cola

Loved the Thin Crust Pizza. Thick Crust was average. Loved the cola (hate that they dont have free refills but then again it was so good) I would not mind paying more.

It is a very interesting place with lots and lots of throwaway pieces made into a beautiful whole but this is a restaurant. Worth a trip just to check the place out and the food was OK. The menu was very limited. Please at least offer a regular salad I don't need nuts, seeds and sweetness in my salad, it's... More

Satchel's has been around for a long time and you either love it or hate it. If you want good pizza or calzones and don't mind sitting in a very unusual atmosphere, ( I would call it 20th century junk yard) and you don't mind waiting an abnormally long time with very little customer service, then give it a try....

Satchel's is the standard by which all other Gainesville pizza is held. It represents Gainesville accurately; quirky, artsy, supportive. The business has been around long enough to be an icon. With the Falcon van in the front - which is also a table! - and the junk shop in back, it appeals to the hipsters as well as families. You... More

Satchel's Pizza is definitely a must at place to eat when you visit Gainesville. All their sodas are home made. The large pizza fed 5 adults. Plan on visiting their gift shop. Their souvenirs bring back memories of the 50's and 60's. Bring cash, they don't accept credit cards.

Listen to your driving directions. We drove by it the first time b/c it looked like a junkyard. There is a "salvage" store in the back- that was a neat little walk through time. Satchel's though had a very robust salad bowl that easily fed two. The medium thin crust pizza was more than two could eat for lunch. Crust... More

living in Gainesville, Satchel's is one of our favorite places to eat and take out of town guests. It has a very "hippy" vibe and the food is great. Fun decor too.

Pizza, one type of salad, homemade funky drinks. Okay, but, not for me. Pizza was decent, but, not spectacular in my opinion. Super fun atmosphere though.

We had lunch at Satchels and did the "special"...a slice of our favorite pizza and a side Satchels salad - delicious! They have great local brews on tap now too - so a perfect beverage accompanied our meal as well. Satchels never disappoint - the perfect mix of great pies and great fun!
