Gainesville's best pizza

Share |
My sister was in town for a few days, and I thought it would be fun to take her to our favorite pizza eatery, Satchel's Pizza.  It is an eclectic mix of pizza, "junk" and entertainment.  As a business person, I am intrigued with the success of this business considering they do a few things "wrong" as considered by most business folk.  They only take cash, they're in a not so easy to get to location, and they don't mind telling you your pizza can take a long time to be ready.  So why are they so successful?  The pizza is really that good.

Even though it was 6 PM on a Thursday night, we still had to wait for a table.  We strolled around the Lightning Salvage store on the behind the restaurant while we waited.  It is advertised as a "junk" shop, but I would call them trinkets.

There was a room in the back with live music going on and libations available.

We were seated within about 10 minutes at a large table in the center of the restaurant.  As you can see there is a lot of art decorating the ceiling and walls.

I can't ever go and not get the house salad.  It is a mix of greens, veggies, nuts and a tangy vinaigrette dressing.  I also get it with feta cheese.

Finally the pizza!  There are a few standard choices o the menu, but we usually make our own.  Tonight's pizza had pepperoni, italian sausage, tomatoes and fresh basil.  It's a very thin crust and a bit crispy.

In front of the store is a Volkswagen bus.  It has seating inside for a party of four or so.  (That night, there were a few in there with a heater -- it was a bit chilly!)  There is also bench seating in a garden link atmosphere out front as well.

If you go and forget to take cash, don't worry, there is an ATM inside the restaurant.
