If you enjoy BBQ and you would like to have it at a great location you should make a visit to Sazs. Their food is always good to very good and their service is usually very good.

Saz's catered my daughter's wedding at Best Place in Historic Pabst Brewery. We went with German to stay with the theme. Absolutely delicious and every guest was raving from all over the country, including VA, KY, D.C. and WI. Buffet food was hot and plentiful. Most guests were not aware they could have seconds, I would have wished the staff... More

This was recommended by one of the workers at the Miller Brewery Tour. It is just down the street and easy to find. We were quickly seated. We ordered the baby back ribs, a bbq pork sandwich, and a bbq brisket open faced sandwich. All were amazing! Our food came out much quicker than we anticipated. Our server was very... More

I've been a fan of Saz's since we were introduced to them at Summerfest. This was our first visit to the restaurant. Great, casual atmosphere and we had tasty sandwiches.

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
