This is a quick eat joint down a quaint alley of shops and quick eats. The group I was with enjoyed a variety of pizzas. I had to hot wings. They were spicy but tasty. It has a bar feel and a great place to go and hang out with friends. I was with a large group and we had... read more

I went to Satisfaction last weekend - I was grabbing a quick bite before heading to the airport. It was not crowded and service was quick. I just ordered a pizza. I took my leftovers with me to the airport - they traveled with me and tasted great while on a layover many hours later! This pizza place is near... More

This bar allows you to sit anywhere in the bar and root for the Dukies with about 20-30 TV's everywhere! The atmosphere is great and the drinks are what you would expect for a college town bar. The service was slow, even for being the first weekend of March Madness, and the pizza hit the spot for what I was... More

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 had seemed great as well. The atmosphere... 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
