 From the terminal:

go to the directory with all these files: cd complete/path/to/directory
complete/path/to/directory can be obtained by dragging the relevant 
folder onto the terminal window from the Finder

Translate them all: apply epstopdf *.eps
(yes, the apply command iterates over all files)

If your files are located in subdirectories, the find command may be of 
find root/directory -type f -name "*.eps" -exec epstopdf {} \;
