“Good Food But Very Overpriced.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

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 to be. I will note that we have had multiple parties here in a back room and everything was great. Excellent food, good service, not rushed and a good time was had by all.If you are looking for a very casual spot for a celebration Eppies may be for you!!!

“Lunch treat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

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.

“Has gotten overpriced for bland food.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

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 roast beef sandwich. It was just a pile of dry slices on rye bread...not even mustard or Russian dressing or coleslaw!! Nothing on it!!! And charged me $15 !!!
Awful service too...manager was not kind and service was slow. (This was on a Wed. At 11:30 am and only 4 tables with customers)
Manager could have at least said "im sorry but thats how it's served)...instead he said " That's what you ordered/ that's what you got"

“Generous Servings at a High Cost”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

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 2 bagels. Iha thought it was okay but not worth the price. y friend ordered the open faced Reuben that was over 20 dollars I just cannot see it for a sandeich without fries. Service was good all was ok as we went early soon fikled up with noisy kids while I had hoped for more little old ladies and couples going outhaving animated conversations like I remembered in the old days
