    Deep dish pizza is crusty on the outside and soft in the middle: high quality stuff that is hard to get right. Takes half hour but it's well worth it if you have the time. Wonderful place!

    The pizza isn't really anything special but going to satchels is a very unique experience. Definitely recommend it for the atmosphere. Also be sure to check out the dessert menu! It's a lot of fun!

    Great pizza served in a unique and artistic location! Everything is fresh and delicious! Make sure you bring cash...they have an ATM there just in case. Check out the gift shop also.

    Best pizza in Gainesville!! Unique atmosphere, awesome vibe, locally owned & operated! If Satchel doesn't bring your pizza out himself, he'll definitely stop by! Order the deep dish!!

    The Satch salad is amazing and the pizza is the best in Gainesville. Try the spicy sausage on your pizza or calzone. Don't forget to visit Lightening Salvage while waiting for your table!

    A Gainesville staple. If you love pizza and being surrounded by hippies, this is your place. Bring cash because it's cash only (but there's an ATM that donates money to charity when you withdraw).

    Visit during lunch (11-4p) to get their daily special—a salad and 1 topping pizza for $6.50. If you’re lucky you may even be able to dine inside their trademark van. Read more

    No doubt some of the greatest pizza I've ever had. The salad is also awesome and the store is killer. An all-around phenomenal place

    Go here not only for the best pizza in Gainesville, but for the Satch-store, filled with all kinds of unique gifts and knick-knacks.

    Don't skip the salad. It's the best house salad around! Not sure what to get? Try a Mama Pizza w/ pepperoni, sausage, bacon & ham, or a Mama Pizza w/ artichokes, mushrooms, spinach & garlic.

    Come early so you won't have to wait. But if you do wait, be patient. This isn't fast-food pizza; this is excellent pizza!

    Super cute place with a very friendly staff. It's all cash only, but there's an ATM in the gift/toy/oddities shop. :)

    The pizza is good, but what's really awesome about the place is the atmosphere. Nowhere else in Gainesville is quite like Satchel's!

    Go to Leonardo's- Better quality and closer to campus. Satchels has good salad, and it's cheap if you split with a group. Pizza is just decent but they're generous with the toppings.

    The icing on the cake was definitely the dessert menu of presenting 3D photos of the dessert really innovative idea Mr. Satchel.

    Better ask for a "sample" of their homemade soda - I tried the diet and decided WATER was what I was going to drink.

    Pizza slice was okay. More of a hype of having pizza at Satchels. Other very interesting items were on the menu. Ruthie's brownies were a tad bit too sweet. I like my brownies more gooey and wet.
