Tried Satchmo's after reading TA's reviews with my husband. Not that you have to order both BBQ & Cajun together, we did and it was great! Ordered the jambalaya & pulled pork sandwich. Had to try both of them since both reviews were great. I loved them! The jambalaya was spicy & delicious, and the pulled pork - perfectly cooked... More

My wife and I came through flagstaff whilst doing Route 66 so only had one night at the nearby best western. When we checked in we got on the wifi and looked for nearby places to eat. I found Satchmos and read some help reviews saying how good it was. We wandered down and were so surprised at how good... More

Incredible ribs, melting in your mouth but with just a little resistance off the bone - in other words, cooked to perfection! Gumbo was delicious, all the sides were amazing and complemented each other. The service was very friendly and the manager was extremely welcoming. You'll be surprised by how good this place is - certainly the best BBQ I've... More

Satchmos offers great quality food. Po Boys are delightful, Sammiches are delish. Personally I order pork or shrimp. Off the beaten path and a strip mall hole in the wall but worth it. Make it happen.

We ordered their blackened fish, and it came with rice and beans. Spicy and delicious. The price was very cheap. We also tried their fried bread pudding and it was so delicious.

This little place was recommended by friends who found it on Roadtrippers. I decided to give it a try. I had the half rack of ribs with BBQ beans and tater tots sides. I was a little hesitant to order tater tots since I hadn't had them since I was a child but they were seasoned well and delicious. The... More

Small place - not easy find but it's worth looking for@ Love their jambalaya! I get a pint with beans to take home! Everything is spicy so side food is not for everyone but there pulled pork is cooked tender an is a delicious! Love the jalapeño in the coleslaw an cornbread- any side you get is great!

I am from the deep south and whenever I do not feel like cooking, this is my place for fried catfish served with good ol' red beans and rice! The jambalaya makes you look around to check and make sure you are not on Bourbon Street as you eat along with Louis Armstrong playing in the background. The gumbo is... More

My love affair with Cajun food started nearly twenty-five years ago when I visited New Orleans and ordered Jambalaya at Mothers Restaurant. I was hooked for life! I now consider myself somewhat of a Jambalaya connoisseur, and I can say, without hesitation, that Satchmo's jambalaya is by far the best I have ever had!

Thank Don R

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!
