    Overpriced and not worth your time

    The service was extremely terrible, I went with 6 of my friends and it took 20 minutes for a waiter to come to us. Then it took another 10 minutes to get our drinks and it took another 10 minutes for our food. The food was good, but definitely not worth the price. It would not be worth it to eat here.

    downhill

    Used to be our go-to order in place but the menu has changed, for the worse. Prices higher ... food options more limited and not as good. Bring back your old menu!

    Inconvenient All The Way Around

    The food is alright but ordering delivery it always takes 45 to hour to get your food and then it's really annoying when they often forget something or your food is cold. The "cash only" policy is also inconvenient and considering that they're overpriced you would think they would rush it to your door.

    Not what it used to be

    EJ's used to be my favorite takeout, but not any more. They still have the daily specials, all of which have increased mightily in price. The food has simply gone down hill followed by the portions. Their chili used to be superior until they stopped including the sirloin tips, now it tastes like it comes out of a can. The dinner salads are half of their former size and have little protein. They can cut the turkey/chicken in the chef salad into cubes[instead of strips] but you'd still have to be blind not to realize there is barely 2 ounces of meat in the salad. At over $12 a dinner salad, one expects not to feel hungry at the end of the dish. My suggestion: go elsewhere until they return to their former ways.

    beware

    I have had a great relationship with dining at EJ's over the years but recently something is amiss. I don't know if there is a change in the kitchen or management but the food has been significantly lacking. Upon ordering the eggs Florentine this weekend I found that the side of potatoes were over cooked and amounted to no more than a palms sized serving. Even worse was that the eggs were not poached fulls but raw! The yolk is supposed to be runny but not the egg whites which was the case. I discovered this too late and proceeded to spend the rest of my morning with severe digestive problems. VERY disappointed that something so simple couldn't have been properly done. All it would have taken was an extra minute to properly cook the eggs.

    Love love EJ's!

    This is my go to place! I have been eating here for years and I love it! Food is always fresh and yummy. Doesn't have that typical diner feel that you get when you end up at one at 3am. The staff is friendly and helpful. I love all there food but my favorite is the heshy! Go to EJ's for some good fresh comfort food!

    Overrated

    This Upper Eastside "staple" is not worth it, especially on a Saturday for brunch. Overcrowded and understaffed. Had to wait approximately 45 min for our food which is simply unacceptable.
