Saz in Madison

So I'm betting this is the only Turkish-Mexican restaurant in Wisconsin. Maybe in the country? If not, it's probably the only one that also serves pizza and lasagna (a benefit of being owned by the Turkish-Italian place across the street).

I cannot speak much on the Mexican side, outside of some guacamole that came with a plate of hummus and salad. Not being a guacamole eater myself I have to take my girlfriend's word at it being amazing. I can attest to the hummus and pita bread, which was amazing. I ordered at lamb doner kabab which is essentially a really amazing gyro. Fresh lamb, not cut for a pre-fab spit like in all gyro places. Maybe the most tender and tasty lamb I've ever had. Came with fries which, while not fresh cut, were extremely well made, just the right amount of crisp. I'm guessing the authenticity probably lies in the Turkish side more than the Mexican side but based on how fresh and well done every we had was, the Mexican food is probably good as well. There are also a lot of Turkish-Mexican fusion options like a feta burrito.

Price? Ambiance? This is pretty much a nice looking, cheap counter ordering place. Most items are $5-$7. It's locate among the college bars and shops on State Street.
