The food is good, the portions are large-the service uneven-sometimes excellent, sometimes indifferent, the atmosphere is an upscale Jewish deli. The real issue is the price of everything is absurdly high, $15-21 for a sandwich, $13-17 for hot dogs, really???

Eppes Essen in Livingston is exactly what it sets out to be: a Kosher Style American Jewish Deli that is, in some ways, a throw-back to those you remember growing up in the old neighborhood, whatever neighborhood that was, and for me it was 1960's Brooklyn. Nothing fancy re decor, the food is the star here, and big portions rule.... More

This restaurant has been in town for many years, serving good food. However, it has become too pricey for deli sandwiches. A "lite" sandwich and soda costs approximately $15. The population appears to be mostly seniors and they need to find ways to bring in a younger population.

The Sloppy Joes are a must have. We got a tray 12 for a group at our hotel. Very tasty but expensive, well worth it though. They also included a container of dill pickles which were great too.

What's to like about this place? Tried their Turkey Pastrami sandwich and it was like ewww...gross! To make matters worse, the people working there are mean and the prices are outrageous. Good bye.

The food here is good and the portions big BUT: service ranges from slow and surly to just plain slow and the food is GROSSLY OVERPRICED! Honestly, it's just not worth it.

Perfect place to go for a memorable corn beef sandwich! They are piled high and served with pickles and cole slaw. Highly recommend the turkey sandwich as well. Great take out meats and sides. Hope you enjoy as much as I do!

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, this is your place.... 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
