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!

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

This place is great! Got the catfish po-boy and loved it. It's counter service and the food comes out fast. The sweet BBQ sauce is great and the spicy BBQ is okay. Beer and wine on tap. Good food for the price. Sandwiches come with two sides. The house made baked beans were awesome! Definitely going back!

“Looking for Great Southern-Style BBQ in Flagstaff? We Loved It!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

My wife, daughter and I were looking for some great BBQ... And a friend recommended Sachmos.

It's not easy to find, as it is located behind a gas station located on the south east corner of N. 4th Street and E. 7th Ave.. Nice music-related decorations, including a number of horns and other instruments and vintage posters of "Satchmo" and other jazz greats.

A cute little place with paper-covered tables where you order at the counter and they bring you your food. But, the food is amazing!! We had a full rack of ribs that was delicious and had the meat literally falling off the bone. We also had sliced a great chicken breast sandwich, scrumptious sweet potato fries, beans and rice (bland--but Southern Style!) and a small order of wonderful mustard-laced potato salad.

All in all, it was a wonderful meal and just what we were looking for on a rainy afternoon!

“What a Great Surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

This restaurant is very, very plain and off the beaten path. But, the food and prices are great. The ribs were the best I've ever had and the portions plenty to satisfy the hungry diner.

“Great local spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

This was a great spot for BBQ. Not only was the food great, but they had a lot of good beers on tap, including several local brews. It is small, but definitely worth the visit.

“Wonderful local”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

Had a great lunch. Saturday is burnt ends day. They were really good. The beans were fantastic and the red beans and rice were just as good. The Mrs had the pulled pork which she reports was excellent. She also reports that the potato salad was excellent. This will be a regular for us from now on.
