We were excited to hear that Satchel's had opened downtown, but gave it some time to work things out before we tried it. Our plan was to place the order over the phone and pick it up as parking is difficult on W. Liberty. We...More

Service is friendly and the tables were clean. 5 different sauces to chose from. Pulled Pork, Sausage, Chicken and Brisket to chose from. Sides to chose from were good with the Mac and Cheese my favorite.

We go to Satchel's 2-3 times a year. It's not a huge place, but we have always managed to find a seat on one of the benches at the tables. The tables are really closer to picnic tables with benches, than separate tables for each...More

Our office loves this place! We've been going there since it first opened. They smoke their own meats in the smoker at the front of the parking lot. You can smell the smoke as soon as you walk into the restaurant, decorated with log tables...More

I've been meaning to try this place for 3 years since my daughter started at UM. I ordered the dry spare ribs and they were VERY good. Very tender but had a great bark on the outside. The sauces were a bit weak as another...More
