This BBQ place is very much into cajun cooking, which was great for us. You've got to try their cajun tater tots! We had their pork sandwich and baby back ribs which were good and cajun spiced. More sauce was at table. Owners came by to check and ask if all was good and anything needed.

Me and a friend came by at Satchmo's because we searched for a good BBQ near our hotel. This one is for sure one of the best pulled pork i've ever ate. Plus your staff was friendly. Don't get irritated how it looks outside

Satchmo's is an interesting place with indoor and outdoor seating. Located in a small strip mall off the beaten path, this quaint getaway smells like heaven. With several smokers in the back going full roar, the smell of BBQ hits you as you pull into the parking lot. The menu is simple. The staff will tell you that the owner/cook... More

Being from Canada I do not know much about cajun/creole cooking but I would concur with the previous review by John S in all respects. The tater tots are surprisingly good as a side and not at all greasy. Dirty rice and potato salad also good. a half-pint of the gumbo makes a good starter but it is spicy. the... More

The girlfriend and I decided to stop here for lunch between leaving the Grand Canyon and going to Sedona. We drove by once without seeing it, but spotted it once we turned around. It's not directly on 4th St, but set back a little at 4th & 7th Ave. We spent 3 weeks on the road, eating out most of... More

I love Satchmo's! It is a super casual dive kind if place on Flagstaff's east side. They have such great Cajun food... Po' boys, jambalaya, ribs, blackened catfish, and ribs. Today I had a fried shrimp po' boy with potato salad and sweet potato fries. Everything is delicious and all has a nice amount of heat. Highly recommended!

My daughter and I were in Flagstaff just having finished a hike in the Grand Canyon. We noticed that Satchmo's got good reviews from other diners. They weren't wrong. Flat out good barbecue. Don't miss out on the cole slaw. I ordered a pint thinking that it would be plenty for the both of us. We ended up fighting over... More

Not much to say about this place other than the barbecue is out of this world! We ordered the sliced brisket sandwich, full rack of pork ribs, sweet potato fries and jalapeño cole slaw. Every one of these selections was awesome! The sliced brisket was piled high, and soooo tender. The ribs were tender AND juicy. My only disappointment was... More

When you park up in front of Satchmo's you really do not know what to expect inside. A really eclectic interior is matched by the staff. Amazing service and recommendations from Salvador Dali (not his real name if you go you will see why they call him this)! The food was excellent, my husband had ribs with sweet potato fries... More

Whatever you do make this place a stop if you're in the area. Definitely worthy it and get the jambalaya. It's the best! And did I mention that it has local beer? No? It has a good selection of local brews.
