Their corned beef is especially good but $ 14.00 for a sandwich is too much food and too much money for me. You could order the smaller sandwich with soup and a soda and it will cost you a little more . Apparently too much is the word for many locals as it is not as crowded as it used... More

Open faced Ruben with pickles, and a pastrami sandwich which we never get tired of at this restaurant deli. A relaxed place to take any one for a great lunch that has all the delicacies you crave for. Take out is available for those who wish to enjoy at home.

Been coming here for over 30 years but now the meals are overpriced. Was in the mood for a good Jewish bagel and lox. You can't even just get a bagel with lox and cream cheese!!- only can order a "platter" for $18.99! Yikes! Instead I ordered a cup of Matzo ball soup (very bland...no yumminess at all) and small...

We went here as I live no where near a Jewish Deli in the South. I L loved the pickles and coleslaw they served reminded me of Juniors and Wolfies. However I was truly shocked by the prices, it isva deli, you know. I ordered a lox platter that was about 20 bucks, came with 2 bagels. WAHO can eat... More

Having visited this Deli for over 30 years, it remains one of my local stops when I invite someone for lunch to taste a good Pastrami sandwich. The other day, I went in with a guest and the reception at the front was very swift and professional, and I was shown a table by the window. A server came by... More

The food is just amazing. The chicken soup is the best I ever had. May be pricey but definitely top notch quality for your money!

This is the food of my childhood, and it's tasty! Eppes Essen is a family restaurant. The decor isn't elegant, but the atmosphere is relaxed, the food is good and the portions are large. You get pickles and coleslaw for the entire table to hold the hunger demons at bay, but you won't go hungry, never fear! It's Kosher-style, and... More

You have to try ALL of their specialty sandwiches! They offer a variety of food but their hot sandwiches are to die for! You will not regret it!

There is usually no crowd and the diners tend to be an older crowd. The food is good, but pricey for a deli and the service could be more attentive. It's kind of ridiculous to pay $18 for a triple decker sandwich and other local eateries are priced better.
