In 1976 Milwaukee native Steve Sazama, a.k.a. Saz, opened Saz’s State House Restaurant in a historic building nestled beside the railroad tracks on the West Side of town. Saz knew how to make his customers happy with great food and stellar service. What he didn’t know was that 45 years later Saz’s State House would be the cornerstone for a thriving operation that includes successful Catering, Festivals and retail Barbecue Products divisions.

Thank you to everyone who has made the past four and a half decades such a success. We’ve come a long way from where we started!
It’s been an unbelievable ride, but it’s more than just that. It’s all the fun behind each plate and each bottle of sauce, and it’s nice to be a part of that. You’ve got to enjoy your work and I do. I still have fun and it’s still exciting, but you can’t grow by yourself – you’ve got to have the people behind you. I’m fortunate that with my team of key employees and such a great group of customers we get to serve, I do have that support. You’re all like family, and that makes it really special.
So thanks for everything and cheers to the next 45!
