Casual but way above the average ethnic steam table place. Tableside service, both inside and outdoors. Owner often on site. My wife loves the lamb burger.

Zov's is a great place to go for brunch on a Sunday after a morning of hiking at the top of Ridge Park Dr. Great omelettes, pancakes, hash browns and mimosas if you desire. Their lunch menu is yummy too.
