No better place to go for a bagel sandwich. Breakfast or lunch. Their French toast bagel is ON POINT.

This place by all means have the hugest freaking bagels! The best tasting bagels, I might add. They have all different types of bagels, cream cheese, ice coffee. If you plan to visit - be prepared to wait in line - 30 minutes. They do have a drive-thru that can sometimes be challenging as it is small and can interfere... More

Bagel world is the best place for a great bagel! Huge variety of bagels, very tasty. Highly would recommend to anyone. They have few other locations in surrounding cities. Wait is too long on weekends be prepared to wait 30-40 min to buy a bagel. Only few tables to sit at this location.

Popular, and for a reason - outstanding bagels. Lots of different types and well as different cream cheeses. Line moves fast so when we want a bagel - this is the place to go!

Be prepared to wait in line for 20-30 minutes for a bagel, but I PROMISE the wait is worth it! If it wasn't for the rude workers behind the counter, I would give Bagel World 5 stars. The bagels here are incredible. They are fresh made in house, and often are served to you warm! They are on the larger... More

For real NY style bagels. Huge but not too huge, squishy but not too squishy, holes are small but not too small. DUDE. Go here. They get PACKED. There will probably be a massive line when you get there. Remember when your granny said "good things come to those who wait" She was referring to Bagel World,

Best bagels outside of New York. The lines can be long but that is the price of a great bagel. Ilike the onion but there are many flavors.

Terrific bagels. Their egg bagels are really good. The bagels have the right amount of texture on the outside and chewiness on the inside. They are extremely fresh.

You really can't believe how good a bagel can be until you bite into the chewy exterior and get a mouth full of bagel delight. Any sandwich you want and some you don't know you want, yummy, yummy for your tummy! Great selection of bagels and options to fill or top those wonderful bagels!

You cannot get a better bagel anywhere! Great price on a bagel and the Bagel sandwiches. The staff is ultra friendly. The only problem is the long lines to get at this great food!
