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!

Just moved here from the golf coast and were really happy to find this place. My husband, a true southerner was ecstatic with the catfish and the remoulade sauce was perfect. I had the jambalaya it was different then typical New Orleans style bought it was wonderful. I sampled the gumbo and in their rue was well prepared however it... More

I came here to this small restaurant based on online reviews. One does not usually think cajun/creole and Flagstaff AZ in the same thought, but I am so glad we did. The andouille sausage po' boy was to die for. The vinegar cole slaw offset the sausage in the sandwich perfectly. The ribs were tender and flavorful, and came with... More

We visited Satchmo's because I had been to a food pairing with the American Legion of Flagstaff and the local breweries and the food was amazing. We ordered the Big Mo which included jambalaya, brisket, chicken, and ribs, they were excellent. My wife had the burnt ends beef tips and my daughter-in-law had the catfish bites, both were very happy.... More

Nice to find a place in Flagstaff with good poboys! House Chips are delicious side. Fried shrimp poboy very good. My wife had the blackened shrimp poboy, and loved it too. Very busy place, but wait time was not bad at all. Very good value.

This is a place you go for the best ribs ever !. It's not a 5* dining atmosphere however you will quickly forget where you are when the food comes. It's a MUST GO if you are ever in Flagstaff AZ

We were driving down from Monument Valley to Scottsdale to finish our vacation, and needed a pit stop at Flagstaff to get a quick bite to eat. Searched TripAdvisor and found this place. Definitely did not disappoint! In fact, the food easily matched the high expectations, and the staff was very friendly. Very good value for the money we paid... More

This is a small "hole in the wall" type restaurant located in Flagstaff, Arizona. We could smell the smoker long before we could find the place. It is in a "strip mall" type setting about 150 feet from the main road and behind a Shell gas station directly on the corner. Nothing fancy about the decor by the BBQ we... More

You will love this place if you like a small, casual, hip, local, friendly, beers, reasonable price and great food. Not for you if you want fancy, upscale, fine dining and table service. Heads up - the beer is not cheap, but it is good.

It's a great casual place to meet friends. Local and craft beer, a casual atmosphere and friendly service. They have a smoker out back for their pork, and it smells wonderful.
