the pizza taste good and the size is convenient,but the price is very high

plane mid pizza 13$ with 4 toppings reach 20$

go there if you were not hungry because they make you wait forever to have a seat and after you order it takes forever to get your order

Heard so many good things about Satchel’s and was excited about trying it. It was very disappointing.

The pizza was good, but nothing amazing. Menu has salad, pizza by the slice or whole pie, calzones and dessert.

Everyone in our party ordered a slice of pizza with our choice of toppings. They had a long list of fresh, yummy pizza toppings, but the pizza was just average. We also ordered a Satchel Salad for the table to share. It was flavorful.

The atmosphere felt non sensical for the sake of being bizarre, a bunch of garage sale finds randomly placed. Some items were artsy & unique but in general it felt junky.

It’s a long drive out of town and not worth it. Stay in town and enjoy a classic, Leonardo’s!

This place deserves the rating, very tasty pizza and cold beer and very low prices. If I come back in town, will certainly return!

I don't know where to begin. I guess the nicest part is that you can have a great and generous meal here along with a kitschy visit that you won't soon forget. For the food, any age will enjoy their generously sized salad and pizza slices. One slice is a personal pizza, so you can confidently order it and a salad and have a full and delicious meal. I loved all the choices for toppings. You can feel very original, designing your perfect pizza. The menu contains many enticing treats. I just never made it beyond this standard fare.
If you are lucky, the van is open and you can have your meal in a camper van, but the choices of where to eat go beyond that. There are many outdoor spaces including some great out of the way places for young families with kids with no tech play equipment easily within sight. There are other outdoor spaces in the front, back and sides. Take a look around before you light.
For those who want to be inside, the front seating is the least amazing though still fine and dandy. The back is just coming together with a kitsch store of magic tricks and many other old fashioned delights in addition to interesting tables, each with a theme: matchbooks, pencils, etc. to entertain you while you wait. There is music played back there many evenings.
Did I mention that the dessert menu is on a view master? I was enchanted.
As for the rest of the decor, leave time to walk around and enjoy the folk art.
Check this place out. If you live there or if you are traveling, it's great for all.

Satchel's and Lightening Salvage is the "go to" place in Gainesville. Their pizza is yummy and their salad is the best. The ambiance is great and there is music most nights at Lightening Salvage.
