I LOVE a good bagel with smoked salmon and anytime I am in the Essex County area I make it a point to go to Eppes Essen for breakfast...or lunch or dinner. Amazing pickles, AMAZING coleslaw, AMAZING salmon. If you order a sandwich, be prepared for a sandwich the size of your head. Around Passover... read more

This is an old-style Jewish deli. Although it should be noted it is not kosher. The corn beef is excellent. They have a variety of items to choose from besides deli. You can order breakfast at any time and they also have burgers, wraps and traditional Jewish items such as potato pancakes or stuffed cabbage. When you first arrive the... More

Best known for their sandwiches. Triple Deckers are quite large so don't be scared off by the price, just split it with a friend! For you pickle lovers- they have giant tasty pickles!

Based on some of the good reviews I read here, we ordered lunch from this place. What a major disappointment. I should have listened to the most recent negative review, because they seem to be spot on. First of all, the place is a major rip off. Outrageous prices for poor quality food. We ordered some pastrami sandwiches and we... More

Delicious deli--excellent coleslaw and pickle assortment served upon arrival, and very fresh deli meat sandwiches. Expensive, but sandwiches are large enough to share. I will return.

In my opinion, this is the best it gets. You can't find pastrami this good on the NJ side of the Hudson River. But that's not all -- there's more. From the pickles and the kasha to the pastrami and cole slaw -- it's all top notch here. I can go into details about each dish we ordered, but I'll... More

Please do yourself a favor and do not eat here. Just a glance at the menu and you will see prices you won't believe. For a place that charges $18 for a sandwich with no sides you would expect top notch service....NOT. Unfortunately, these people think that we owe them something when we walk in. Rudest wait staff and management... More

If you are looking for great corned beef, pastrami, stuffed cabbage and more, this is the place. Huge portions, in fact taking portion home is almost a necessity, sharing a norm. The quality and portions mean it's not inexpensive, but in my opinion it's worth it when you're in the mood for this type of food.

Eppes has the best fresh roast beef sandwich!!! Piled high and freshly cut. You walk in and like Pavlov's dogs - your mouth starts to salivate! Warm feeling and welcoming atmosphere.

Excellent, high quality deli, superb smoked fish and a relaxed atmosphere make Eppes Essen an enjoyable experience. The owner, Josh, and his manager, Jeff, round out a good time at this restaurant with their humor, "schtick," and general good will.
