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.

Our party of four picked up an assortment of sandwiches. Pastrami, Corned Beef and Turkey. ***All were excellent. *** All of us ordered the "light" sandwiches which came with soup, pickles and soda. This is a pretty good value. The only disappointment is that the Cole slaw was an additional charge for take out orders. . It is included in... More

Yes this is the best Jewish deli around. The portions are huge. One sandwich has enough meat for 3 sandwiches! The downside is that it's very pricey.

Corned beef is AWESOME. Potato latkes are great. Pea soup delicious! Breakfast is super! Coffee/tea, juice, eggs, meat potatoes...great portions! The waiter for breakfast is Watson & he is the most professional waiter I have ever met. He is so friendly & customer service oriented. Make sure you say hi to him & tell him he is on Trip Advisor!!!!... More
