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

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.

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.

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.
