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!

“A great find and great craft beer selection”
Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

We were only in Flagstaff for one night and by the time we were done up at Lowell Observatory it was nearly 9 and we had no idea where to eat. Found Satchmo's on Tripadvisor and so we went to find it. Glad we had GPS as it was a little tucked away, but parking was easy. I had the pulled pork sandwich - you get a choice of 2 sides. I had the slaw and sweet potato fries and it was great! My boyfriend had slow cooked beef, refried beans and tots and loved it. It's simple bbq style, but well done. But the highlight was the beer, the guys are really knowledgable about the beers they have in - they had a selection of at least 6. They said they're friends with the local microbreweries so always have the good stuff in. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who wants cheap, good quality eats and likes their craft beer!

“Good ribs”
Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

Went to Sachmos for a late dinner. It was busy, with every table being used when we arrived. Service was pretty slow with people that arrived after us getting their food first. Maybe the ribs take longer than the other dinner items?

The ribs were excellent. The meet almost fell off the bone with each bite. Both bbq sauce options, sweet or sweet and spicey were delicious. The red beans and rice were good but not great. The sweet potato fries were one of the best I've ever had.

I will definitely return for the ribs and sweet potato fries and will try another side.

“Great BBQ: a little hard to find but worth the search!”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

I had the pulled pork, slow-cooked to tender perfection with a choice of two sauces, both delicious. My friend had the blackened catfish, also tender, spicy, and delicious. These are good sized portions so bring your appetite and your friends, you'll want to share the joy. The service is friendly and accommodating. You simply can't go wrong here!
