The food here is really great but the place seems institutional, the staff are unfriendly and although it seems to be clean for some reason I feel it's got issues.

I would love this place to be amazing, but unfortunately like so many Kosher-Style Delis, they live in the past and run it like it was some dining room in a decrepit resort.

Good corned beef and pastrami. Expensive for standard deli food but consistently good. Atmosphere is diner-style with booths and tables. Best homemade coleslaw and pickles in the area.

Eppes Essen has good deli sandwiches, good rye bread, pickles, etc.

However, the prices are beyond ridiculous. A light side, which is a smaller-sized sandwich and a soup, is like 15-16 bucks. Give me a break. Chicken hero with cheese, peppers and onions, for like 14-15 bucks - are you kidding me?

Service is a joke - but it's not the fault of the workers, they're probably getting paid nothing more than the minimum wage.

The fault is that of the owner. The owner of this place, don't know his name (balding, goatee), has got to be one of the most pompous, arrogant, egotistical people I've ever met. I have no skin in the game, by the way.

You can tell that he cares only about the almighty dollar. It is plainly obvious - it's painfully obvious - that he does not care about his customers or his employees. I can't imagine having to work for someone like this.

Every person employed at Eppes Essen has a scowl. They appear to "do you a favor" just by taking your order, like you are bothering them. The restaurant is seldom full, but still, no one gets waited on timely. Food is inconsistent. Sometimes good, sometimes fair. Restaurant survives because there is no other delicatessen alternative for 10 miles in any direction.
