Satchel's BBQ Ann Arbor

DH and I very much enjoyed take-out from Satchel's this past weekend. It's Carolina style BBQ. We had brisket and pulled chicken with the typical vinegar-based BBQ sauce. The meat was tender, flavorful and well-smoked. Sides were also fairly good -- really good mac and cheese, great slaw (very finely chopped but not soupy) and decent corn bread. The texas toast was not much more than bread; I'd expected something more like garlic bread. As we don't eat pork we didn't try the ribs, greens or beans, but other customers seemed to be enjoying them. The portions are reasonable but not huge. The two of us and our five year old shared two plates and there was enough left over for DH to have a good sized sandwich the next day.

The restaurant itself is fairly rustic with a few long family style tables and a menu written on butcher paper. The staff were all very friendly and service was pretty efficient for opening weekend.

All in all, we're excited to welcome a decent restaurant to our neighborhood.
