If you're looking for a traditional Kosher deli, they have the basics, but they are horribly unaccomodating to vegetarians and I'm not sure how they have achieved kashrut certification since they're open on Saturday's. I've had better Kosher deli food. And it would be nice if they didn't use chicken broth in everything...

We are long time regulars at this deli. They have the best hand cut french fries! Brisket, challah, roast beef? It's all good here. The prices are super reasonable and we've never had a bad meal here. The servers are old school, but always friendly and professional. The decor needs updating badly, but who cares when the food is so... More

Don't look for ambiance, but count on a great Kosher deli; where you will find things that you won't in too many places.

Skip it and go across the street to Dantes. Food is a million times better and people are MUCH friendlier.

We went for a late lunch. My husband had the matzo ball soup & special - chicken pot pie (enormous) enough for 2 to share! He said he enjoyed what he ordered. I had potato pancakes (very tasty) with applesauce. We both had chocolate egg creams. If you like corned beef or pastrami sandwiches you might love this deli. The... More

All the standards are great and the staff is very nice. A good place for a good old fashioned deli meal.

Reminiscent of the original Epstein's in the Bronx (except now they serve hummus, too). Big sandwiches, hefty main dishes, well prepared and with friendly service.

Yes, it does have all the Jewish delicacies - Matzo ball soup, corn beef, chopped liver, etc., however the quality was just average. The service is fine and the place is very clean. Also, parking is plentiful because it is in a strip mall.

I have eaten at Antoine's in New Orleans, Berghoff in Chicago, and innumerable expensive restaurants in D.C., and yet my favorite place to eat, almost anywhere, is Epstein's. Delis are ultimately judged by three foods: roast beef, corned beef and pastrami. All three are taste thrills at Epstein's. Some of their best entrees include pepper steak (the green peppers are...

It's good to know that we visit our friends, there is an authentic kosher deli of high quality in the area. Everything is delicious , authentic and plentiful .I only wish it would be located closer to where I live.
