A funky little joint, that cooks with love. Ribs, Beef Brisket, Pulled Pork, Jambalaya, Gumbo, Poboys and Veggie options just to name a few! A killer selection of local and regional craft brews. We understand it may not taste just like your Grandma's Gumbo or just like Pop's BBQ. But what we do understand is cook'n with love, just like Grandma and Pop's did. Good for your soul food!

WOW!!!

This place had everything - nice ambiance. Super friendly staff, including the owner who was a really nice guy, liked the decor, the food was great!!! We've eaten BBQ in a lot of states and this was one of the best. Not too much, not too soggy and sauce laden, just great, great food. You should go!

Wow, where to start... I was expecting something much better based on previous reviews. We walked in and were immediately told to grab a menu and make a selection at the counter. All our questions were answered and we got our orders in. Meals averaged $20 each. Our friends had a rack of ribs, jambalaya, tater tots and cole slaw... More

The minute we walked into Satchmo's, we liked it. The guy behind the counter greeted us in such a friendly way and explained about the menu. We didn't have to wait long after placing our order to receive our food. What a delicious dinner we had! We even got the bread pudding for dessert. What a nice surprise! Great quality... More

The front desk folks at the Days Inn recommended this restaurant and we weren't disappointed. The staff were very helpful with choosing combos... When we were served it looked like a 'doggie bag' night for sure... but we managed to finish the ample portions with a little time! BBQ Sauce was spiced just right, meat was very tender, coleslaw was... More

I was a vegetarian for 20 years, one of the first things I ate after becoming an omnivore was the ribs at Satchmo's. They did not disappoint. Don't expect vegetables at this place, but the food is awesome!
