My father took my on my first train ride to Raritan in 1974. I was only 10, My father asked the conductor if there was somewhere to get something to eat. He said a new bar had just opened down the street from the station. My father had a beer and I had a hamburger while we waited for the train back. When I visited Espos in 2014, the bartender asked if it was my first time there. I told him it was as Espos, but that I had been there in 1974. Bob was sitting at the end of the bar. I walked down and told him the story. He said " the bartender that night most have been me, as I had just bought the place." It's one of my best memories as a kid, and I was thrilled to share it with him. My condolences.

So very sorry to hear this news. My husband and I went to espos 35 years ago every Friday night for date night we got married had kids and still frequented this special place. He was always there working or sitting on his stool always so nice and welcoming always remembered us. What a terrible loss and so sorry this place is no longer open what a terrible loss. He will be in heaven for sure he was one of the good guys

I'm so sorry to hear of Bobby's passing. He was like a welcoming friend every time i passed through the doors of Espo's. I've been eating there since it opened (and at short lived Anthony's before Espo's). The first time I walked in I was I captivated by the ambiance and friendly staff. It had a relaxed atmosphere and felt like home. Bob was a consummate host and always made sure the customers were treated like family. My wife and I had our first date there in 1979 and it has always been our favorite Italian restaurant bar none. When eating at other Italian restaurants Espo's was the gold standard our first comment was always "the food is good but not as good as Espo's". it is truly the end of era but I count myself fortunate to have discovered this hidden gem that was graced by an owner who truly loved what he did and it showed.
