A bit off the main drag but worth going over the block or two. On a quiet evening, service was quick, friendly, and helpful. Ribs, gumbo, and sides all delicious. Ribs for two were actually a bit too much to eat, but every bite was...More

We have eaten many times at the Satchel's on Washtenaw. The food is wonderful and the prices are quite reasonable. It's one of my favorite barbecue places in the area. I often decide to go there because of the wonderful smells coming out of their...More

Satchel's has opened a new location downtown apparently but I have not tried that out. The Washtenaw location is good for business meetings. Lunch is ready, you go up order and you have your meal almost immediately. Unfortunately they were out of Gumbo and Collard...More

We were excited to hear that Satchel's had opened downtown, but gave it some time to work things out before we tried it. Our plan was to place the order over the phone and pick it up as parking is difficult on W. Liberty. We...More

Service is friendly and the tables were clean. 5 different sauces to chose from. Pulled Pork, Sausage, Chicken and Brisket to chose from. Sides to chose from were good with the Mac and Cheese my favorite.

Was in last night. Second and last time. Ribs were pathetic. $63 for ribs that they claim feed two -three people, but in reality were a half slab. The lump of pulled pork was OK, but nowhere near the best I had ever had. They...More

It was interesting to check out this restaurant, since it is a well traveled location southeast of Ann Arbor. You could miss the sign if you are not looking for it. BBQ portions were smallish, given the price that was paid.

Came here on a whim. We wanted soul food so Google suggested this place. The woman at the counter was less than delightful! Customer service isn't her strong point! The food wasn't hot and delucious!!! The portions were small also. The best was the fried...More

The pulled chicken and mac and cheese were rally good. The baked beans and corn bread were average. The house and sweet sauce together were good. Not quite as good as Saddleback in Lansing but it did the trick. The young kid behind the counter...More
