Eppes is a little pricey so we don't go too often but the food is definitely worth the price! The best corned beef sandwich in the area hands down and the coleslaw is the best I've ever had!

The setting is pleasant and the service is friendly and efficient. That's it for the good. On the bad side I won't mind things being grossly overpriced if the food was good. BUT IT IS NOT. I was served the most tasteless, dry brisket sandwich. My mother's corn beef was a bit better than my sandwich but that means mine... More

The matzo ball soup was good. Mashed potatoes were average. Reuben sandwich was huge. Everything is overpriced, but at least it tasted good. I don't know that I would go very often just because of the prices. $20+ sandwiches is a little crazy.

Hubby and I visited for the first time. Won't be our last! I had the classic reuben sandwich. Light rye bread, a very lean yet tasty pastrami meat piled a mile high, sour kraut, and topped with a delish swiss cheese. Available Russian dressing, or dark deli mustard! Impressive! Also lovely steak fries, classic Jewish deli pickles, and very fresh... More

I had the pastrami sandwich. Came with free pickles and a good sized bowl of creamy cole slaw. The meat was some of the best I ever tasted. It was pricey, but worth it if you love this type of food. Highly recommended.

Eppe Essen has off street parking shared with a drive-thru carwash that makes for a high traffic lot. The tai kwon do establishment above the cafe also eats up spaces. Seating is expansive, booths or tables. There are areas for large family parties, full of sunshine from large street windows. The menu is expansive with typical NY deli offerings: lox,... More

We have been "eating here" (Notice I did not say DINING HERE!" for many many years. Through more than the original owners. It's the neighborhood (Jewish/American style facility, that are disappearing all to fit. It still tries. $$$ overpriced and the service tries but doesn't make it anymore. Super assortment of dishes to choose from, but not always served a... More

Good food! Price are expensive but you get large potions. Share a meal or bring home a doggie bag. Staff is always very friendly and attentive. Also great catering services. Atmosphere is a typical NY deli style.
