I enjoyed going to Saz's, both at the State Street location and at Summerfest. My favorite item had always been the pulled BBQ chicken sandwich until I discovered the delicious Rachel. It was the best I'd ever had. Then my husband and I returned this past week to find out they had just changed their menu -- and removed turkey... More

Our family Is a huge fan of the Sazes mozzarella sticks at the state fair, so when we were gifted with a "buy one entree get one free entree" at the actual restaurant we were excited to see wether it would be as good. My husband and I both ordered the ribs and our daughter ordered a club sandwich. The... More

Excellent pub foods, beer and full bar choices. We had their Wisconsin cheese sticks, wings, rib appetizers, burgers and full rack of ribs. Everything was hot, freshly made and delicious. The staff were very friendly, patient and thorough. We also signed up for their game package. Coach bus, food and drinks to and from the Packers games. Packers beat the... More

We came here for our date night-Paint Nite, which was wonderful! We were really hungry and wanted to make sure we ate before we started. We ordered our food in the car on the way there and they had it ready for us five minutes after we got there. We sat at the bar. I had chicken wings. They were... More

Surprised at how slow it was given the height of the lunch hour. The food and service were decent. I had a composed salad, my wife had a burger and our friend Mac n Cheese. All good. I enjoyed the bright atmosphere. Thankfully, the train came when we finished lunch and our visit.

Saz's is area known for their ribs,pulled pork and seasoned fries. The buns are are also the perfect partner to the sandwich. The fries are seasoned just right. If you have to dip your fries, their sour cream accompaniment can't be beat. Gluten-free friendly . Friendly service and cozy atmosphere at every visit. Make this your favorite as well.

We have been here before. This place does not disappoint. It was quiet because we were there at an odd time. But the waitress was attentive and friendly. I ordered the perch with their must have chive fries. Delish. My husband had the reuben. He said it was very good. We will be back. Love the chive fries! The place... More

The catering package was nothing but just awful: tasteless deviled eggs, old summer sausage, terribly tasting dip which ended up in trash after a family member got terrible stomach ache after trying it. Whatever the so called "value" of that package was it wasn't worth a tenth - in fact: would not take it or recommend it for free.

Away from downtown but well worth the trip. The food was excellent and generous portions. We asked our server for what she liked best and she was not wrong! The brisket and meatloaf was so good!!

Visited Saz s after a 30 year hiatus. Food was even more incredible than my memory. Ribs are cooked to perfection. Service is very courteous. Train passing , shaking was an added bonus. Recommend AAAA+
