If barbecue is on your mind, then make a lunch stop at Satterfield's in downtown Macon. Tucked away at 120 New St, this down home BBQ restaurant is a friendly place to take a break and enjoy a tasty lunch from a menu with plenty of choices. Satterfield's doesn't do a dinner service and isn't open on the weekend, but does offer catering and special events in the restaurant in the evenings and on weekends.

I enjoyed the Monday special this week; BBQ pulled pork with three sides - I chose slaw, potato salad, and green beans. This is good, simple, tasty Southern food. It hits the spot and has enough variety for various appetites. Their sandwiches are pretty tasty too. I've enjoyed the pimento cheese sandwich and the Litter of Piglets (pulled pork on three wheat rolls) in recent months.

Sit inside the restaurant or out in the screened-in porch. If you feel like you're being watched, you are - numerous pigs and piglets in all shapes and forms are watching you from vantage points all around the restaurant. I didn't let it make feel guilty about eating their relatives though. I mean, we're all on the food chain somewhere, right? Life is just better nearer the top!

The cold plate is another good choice. Options include potato salad, pasta salad, cole slaw, turkey salad, pimento cheese, etc. Yum!
