We usually come here on a Friday evening. I have never gotten the corned beef or pastrami, but people who have dined with me have and it is a meal for the next 3 days. There is so much meat it is a wonder you...More

We did take out. The light sandwich specials are a bargain. Soup, sandwich , pickles etc. and soda. Our Pastrami, Turkey and Corned Beef sandwiches were excellent.

I grew up on the best deli anyone could ever eat as my Dad worked at Tabatchnicks in West Orange right up until it burned down. I live In Delaware and I don't miss a chance to stop at Eppes when I'm back visiting family....More

Great food for both breakfast and rest of the day! Portions are large (I always take leftovers for lunch the next day after eating there).

I haven't had a bad meal here. Most people don't like it but, they have a great tongue sandwich. Ordered it lean and hot. It was delicious. They also have a large selection of sugar free deserts to take home.

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....More
