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+

A Perfect BLT! My wife and I went off for a short in-state trip- 2 days and 1 night and coming back home on Day 2, we were in the Waukesha area and decided to go to Saz’s for lunch. We’ve been here a number of times in the past and have always enjoyed it. We were seated quickly- it... More

Place is off the beaten path but well worth it. The beef brisket is the best I ever had, served with fresh kettle chips. We also had the pulled pork sandwich , they cut the side crust off the buns. The barbecue sauce has a taste of its own. Great pub atmosphere.
