Possibly the best pizza in Gainesville. Very fun and funky atmosphere. Only downside is it can get quite busy at peak times.

This is a local hang out and may have a wait to get a table. Go early and on a weekday for better luck. It's got the best salad in town and wonderful pizza and desserts. Lots of local art and a funky store to boot. A Gainesville classic!

Pizza is pizza and great pizza in the right atmosphere is even better. Step into the eclectic world of Satchel's Lightening Company. From the homemade colas to the freshly farmed pizza ingredients you will love every bite. Sit inside and soak in the vibe or sit in a minivan and enjoy your favorite creation. Really hungry? Try to tackle the... More

Don't expect fancy or upscale when visiting Satchel's. Also, it's not on any tourist route. But DO expect great NY style pizza, friendly service and a funky atmosphere. You can even eat in an old VW bus. It's a locals fav, but strangers will feel right at home. Pizza, calzones and Satchel's famous chopped salad await you. Satchel's is a... More

Great pizza, limited seating, but worth the wait! I also love their salads. My son took me there for lunch one day and the wait was not as long as for dinner. They also have lunch specials like a slice, salad, and drink combo for a reasonable price. The younger crowd likes to sit in the van; I've sat in... More

Love their food! Pizza is great and salad is awesome! Always friendly and great service. It's a fun and eclectic place to eat with the family. I've eaten there multiple times, and never had a bad experience. Their lunch special is great too - slice a pizza and salad.

This little joint was recommended by a friend, was at UF for an Ag Clinic. Stopped with the family, great food and even more amazing was the service and staff! A+ across the board! Will be visiting again soon!

Being from Gainesville is no reason to tire of a meal at Satchel's pizza. We always get a salad to share (small is enough for 3 or 4 people) and a Mama pizza so we pick out four toppings. Delicious food, great service, incredible atmosphere. There is sometimes a wait but it's always worth it, and be aware the place... More
