Satchel's Junk Museum Restaurant

Evidently a Gainesville mainstay for some years, this is a pizza restaurant. Not only has it partially burned a couple times (evidence can be seen on the side of the neighboring building), but it is also a self-proclaimed "Junk Museum."

You can enjoy your house-made soda and pizza from within a Ford van from the '60s, or from the stained glass covered porch, or the garden decorated with junk art. The building is covered in sundry items and there is a junk wall in the back. The soda and pizza were first rate. Vegan and Gluten Free options are available but we had bacon on ours. Full strips of bacon.

Lower your expectations of a "museum," and you'll be fine.
