A new york deli, it's not, but it's the best in Northern NJ

If you are looking for pastrami the way the 2nd Avenue Deli made, it's not here; service ranges from miserable to merely bad, but that's the way it was at 2nd Ave. Deli too, not the reason to skip this place. If you love deli, really good NY style Deli and aren't driving further than Livingston... read more

I could eat their Chopped Liver non stop! It's almost as good as my grandmother's! Everything I"ve eaten there has been very tasty. But the Chopped Liver is outstanding, In fact I went back on afternoon to pick up some for dinner, and the lady behind me was also there for the same reason. Eppes Essen is a regular Jewish... More

This is what I imagine a deli is supposed to be. Warm friendly full of beautiful food sights and smells. A plethora of ethnic delights. Take out is brisk. The dining area is bright and spacious. The portions are appropriate for the price. Handicapped friendly. Perfect for lunch solo to group celebrations. My only con is the display cases have... More

We live in Georgia but my husband is from Northern NJ. A trip to Eppes Essen is always on the agenda when we visit. He craves NY-NJ authentic Jewish deli so this is where we come to get his fix. The portions are large and so are the prices! They make the most awesome coleslaw and pickles. The soups are... More

We take out mostly and the roast turkey, roast beef, cole slaw, health salad, knish, and rye bread are consistently very good.

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, they've got great gefilte fish.

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.
