Satchel's is kind of a Gainesville legend, it would seem. I'd been hearing about it since my freshman year, but the first time I actually tried it was just a few weeks ago. The prices are a little steep, but reasonable when you consider what you're paying for. It's easy to see why this place has such a cult-like following.
The atmosphere is great. It's artsy and eclectic, from the sculpture outside to the local art that adorns the walls. Satchel's also makes their own sodas. I tried three of them, and all were really good. My personal favorite was the root beer, and I'm not even a big fan of root beer typically. We also got a four topping pizza (with steak, bacon, garlic, and onion), which was really good too. I hope to go back soon and get to sit in "the van", which is exactly what it sounds like.
If you're in the area, go soon (and invite me)!
