I like the food here, always have, although they tend to be a little expensive. But their operation is horrible. The last three times I went here the line just to order has been out the door. This morning I it took me 25 minutes to get a breakfast sandwich that would normally only take 5. Bagel places should not... More

Food is great but it takes FOREVER just to order and even longer to get the food. They aren't organized at all and they don't smile. I go because it's close but you will always wait, even if you call ahead, and no one will smile at you and tell you they hope to see you again.

Chuck Aquisto is super salty and wouldn't know a good thing if it walked up to him on the street and said, "Hey, Chuck, I'm a good thing. "

I was in Somerset with my daughter for a soccer tournament, we ate at Kettleman's three times. Everyone liked what they ordered. The service was quick and the workers were nice. The sandwiches are quite large and the prices were reasonable!

Good bagel place, always packed on weekend mornings. They make very large bagels, so one is enough with your favorite topping.

Kettleman's Bagel Deli, Grill is open 365 days a year and the local residents are glad they are. They offer a wide variety of bagels (although they could be more well done for my taste.) They have many spreads like whitefish salad, tuna, egg salad etc. Their grill plates are excellent. My favorite is the grilled chicken BLT on a... More

Hassan the owner is one of the nicest storekeeper's in the neighborhood and helpful for events he catered for me. The store is clean and the food is always fresh and tasty including the best and biggest bagels in NJ.

I have gone here 3 times recently - only because I figured, once is a fluke, twice maybe, but three's a charm...or lack thereof. The bagels aren't "real" bagels, per se. They are more like round pieces of fluffy bread. Bagels are supposed to be more dense. The whole wheat isn't actually whole wheat. And this morning - I waited... More

Been there several times. Line moves quickly, but can be a bit confusing on pick-up so you may want to pay attention for when your bagel is ready. Good food. Tons of shmears.

Great place for fresh bagels, baked goods and coffee. Highly recommended whether you're in the bagel mood or you'd like a muffin or other baked pastry.
