Love the nachos, good service

Typical sports bar. You can watch almost any game you like. If you are not into sports you can do some karaoke. Waitress was quick with drinks and food orders. Even with refills. Love the nachos. Large plate with different colors of nachos (?). Plenty of sauce, cheese and jalapenos. The food others... read more

Pizza is my favorite food to eat out and whenever we are near Durham, we always go to Satisfaction -- we have been coming here for 28 years and their pizza is as great today as it was when we were students at Duke! Its a basic sports bar atmosphere, but its pizza is among the best!

I had a what they called a Greek salad= #epicfail basically a house salad with feta cheese and banana pepper rings. I thought the olives in a Greek salad were kalamata olives not just your regular black olives. The dressing for the salad was tasty but I didn't feel like I was eating a Greek salad. I did however enjoy... More

The food was great but the service as pretty bad. Seems to be much discussion among the staff as to who was waiting on what table. We even saw one table just get up and leave after waiting 30 minutes and still no food. Luckily our food came in a timely manner. And the food was great but the atmosphere... More

O.M.G. they're the best! The sub was good, and the greek salad was really good. But those chips are worth the trip. Great place to spend time watching anything sports on a hundred TVs. They'll change channels to whatever you want to watch if you ask nicely.

I recently dined at Satis when visiting Durham. It has been a staple on the Durham bar scene since my college years. Satis shines with large groups grabbing pizza and beers. Individual entrees felt a little more pricey than expected. There is plenty of space and TVs to watch whatever game is on.

We weren't really hungry but wanted something so we decided to share the nachos. We asked for extra cheese on the nachos and man, did they deliver. There was only 2 people working there at the time so they only had the middle of the room open. We wanted to sit in a different section that had more cool air... More

All of the females on staff were very rude and dry. The guys though were awesome!! The food saved this review, the pizza was excellent and the beer specials were good. If I don't go back I wouldn't be upset

As part of the reliving collegiate days, we stopped in for post-winning Duke ballgame celebration! The pizza and beer were fantastic- after all these years!! Service was prompt and no issues at all (we were a bit hesitant after reading a few reviews on this but had no issues). We loved this place and will be back next time we... More

The place was pretty empty when we went but it took forever to be served. I have to say, the food was delicious. My husband had the cheesesteak and he said it was the best he ever had. I had the landing broil saute and it was amazing. However, once we received our bill we understood why the service was... More
