Good for a quick breakfast

Excellent bagels. Lots of choice for fillings. Efficient handling of breakfast crowd in a hurry. And piped music from our era ;-)

Charlottesville's own bodos bagels are great! Very economic place to take the family for good fresh food. No chain bagel places in our town. Never fear if the line is out the door! They are incredibly efficient!

Bodos has three locations I have eaten at all three, though I usually go to the one on rte 29. Water bagels are first boiled then cooked in an oven making (I think) a better product with a crunchy exterior. They have several different types of bagels from plain to everything and fillings for almost every taste from just cream... More

Bodo's are the best bagels. They are always fresh and warm. I have been to a lot of bagel shops but they are the best

Three locations in Charlottesville with excellent water cooked bagels with some other dishes, but go for the bagels. Made on the premises and they are fresh and delicious.

Looking for a delicious, inexpensive lunch at a local favorite? Bodo's Bagels is your answer. The food is always fresh, the staff are polite and quick. The only downside is that it get's very busy at lunch-time so get there early! Bodo's is a great take-out dinner as well.

Sesame bagel with bacon, egg and cheese - I'm in heaven! They are every bit as good as my old Brooklyn deli.

A popular spot in the Ville, Bodo's Bagels is a great place for breakfast or lunch, offering a variety of bagels with plenty of cream cheese flavors for breakfast or many different options of bagel sandwiches for lunch.

There's a reason that there are 3 Bodo's locations in Charlottesville and that each one has a line out the door every day! These bagels are great...I've known New Yorkers to haul them back to NY! These are NY water bagels, which gives the bagel a unique texture. My favorite sandwich is whitefish salad with watercress, but everyone has a... More

Great place for lunch. Bagels are fresh and tasty. The pastrami with everything bagel is a favorite as is the Caesar salad. Breakfast bagels are great as well
