My husband and I were looking for a place to eat BBQ, read the good reviews about Satchmo's on tripadvisor and decided to give it a try. I ordered the beef brisket "sammich" and my husband ordered a full rack of ribs, we also ordered a side of beans and potato salad. The beef brisket was so delicious, juicy and... More

Passing through Flagstaff on a road trip and decided to find a place to eat we hadn't tried before. Hopped on trusty old TA and looked things up and Satchmo's came up as #6. Reviews were excellent and the food sounded good so we went on hunt for Satchmo's! The hunt was everything it was lead to believe but we... More

Hard to find in a strip mall, the dinning area is sparse of atmosphere, but the brisket and pulled pork sandwiches were great. The sides of beans and rice, smoked beans as well as sweet potato fries were excellent, and the coleslaw was an acquired taste. Local brews were excellent.

I stopped in with my dogs on a road trip from CA to NC. It was a beautiful sunny day and my pups were welcome to join me on the patio for lunch. Staff was friendly and helpful and brought out water for the dogs. I really enjoyed the smoked chicken sandwich, coleslaw and sweet potato fries. The chicken was... More

Found this BBQ joint from Trip Advisor, near to I40W. Good choice for pulled pork on a bun with different heat and sweetness squeeze bottles of sauce. Sweet potato fries are fresh and plenty good heap of them.

Food was hot and delicious. Staff was very enthusiastic about beer selection. I loved my beef brisket and slaw. Sister in law raved about her burger and tots. The men were a little less happy and felt portions could be a pinch more generous. Also, they were critical of the decor which could use updating. But that doesn't take away... More

Best BBQ I have had in Flagstaff, hands down! Their patio is cute with a great painted mural and adorable atmosphere! If it wasn't so far from my house I would be here all of the time! Good thing though haha I would turn into a tater tot if I lived near this spot!

Satchmo's is the Best BBQ in Flagstaff ~ I have loved everything that I have tried (which is almost the complete menu). Shrimp Po'boy is amazing and the sweet potato fries are awesome! Smoked chicken super tender and never dry as some chicken! If you like ribs get a full rack ;-)

We never would have found this gem if not for trip advisor. On our way back to Sedona from the Grand Canyon, we stopped in here for a late dinner. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and the BBQ couldn't have been more delicious. I had the beef brisket with tater tots and slaw. My husband had the pulled... More

My family really enjoyed this restuarant. Some of the best BBQ we have had in a long time. The BBQ sauce was a little spicy for the kids, wish they had something a little milder. We had fun drawing on the table paper while we were eating. Good family atmosphere.
