We were heading to Gainesville for a long weekend and I asked to UF students where they would go if they had the chance. Both, seperately, jumped on Satchel's immediately.
We, (me, my wife and boys 9 and 12), were looking for something a little different.
We arrived early for dinner on Fri after reading how long the wait can get. It's a little out of the way if you're looking for something right near UF but it was an easy drive.
We ordered the salad and a cheese/sausage pizza. Nothing fancy. We really liked the salad and the pizza was good, really liked the crust.
It is a fun place to go, especially for families. We got to sit in the van out front(kids insisted). The junk shop and bar? in the back were fun and the kids found lots of cheap stuff to buy.
While we were there many families came to eat, shop and relax to the band that played.
We'll stop by again next time we're in town.
