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.

We have been coming here for years but the high prices for a sandwich will keep us away. The floor feels greasy, the space is loud, the food is good but way over priced.

We had not been there for awhile and our friend wanted a good pastrami sandwich so we tried it. They had opened up the room so it seemed brighter and more cheerful although the ambiance is still stark and not very attractive. The service was good and portions are large, even the children's meals. However, the prices are extremely high... More

I love this deli. Everytime I walk in there, I'm afraid I'm going to gain weight just by breathing in the wonderful aromas. The food is terrific and I highly recommend going there if you want a Jewish style meal.

A great "Jewish" deli. Great soup, turkey, pastrami, corned beef and coke slaw. Even their rye bread is insane. Pricey but when you compare to other places, nobody in NJ comes close.
