A Charlottesville Classic

Whether your a Charlottesville native or a visitor, Bodos is a must-stop. Not only are the bagels legendary, they serve great soups, bagel sandwiches and amazing salads. Their service is always fast and friendly and you won't find a better value anywhere. If you go for lunch, don't be intimidated... read more

Bodo's was packed on Sunday morning, but they keep folks moving and our wait was brief. Delicious breakfast bagel - everything wheat was awesome. The coffee is a dark brew- perfect for morning coffee. Seating was ample and it's a bright noisy place just like a New York deli!

I have lived in Charlottesville for 23 years and Bodo' s is the best place for a quick meal or snack. Delicious bagels, soups, and salads at an affordable price. Do not let the long lines deter you because they move very quickly. The BLT bagel is great with lots of bacon.Great place to bring the kids after a soccer... More

Lots of choices. Had a roast beef bagel and it was so good. Can't wait to go back for another one. Will definitely be going back.

If you like kaiser rolls masquerading as bagels, then Bodo's in NOT the place for you. If you like genuine NY deli style bagels Bodo's is the ONLY place in Charlottesville to find them. Made fresh throughout the day, fast service, friendly staff, OK prices, three locations in the area, eat in and take out. I just wish they had... More

We have frequented Bodo's more times than we can count. There are three locations, but we have never been to the (University) Corner store. Bodo's has the best bagels in town, and not expensive at all. They offer sandwiches, to include breakfast sandwiches, as well as multiple types of bagels and spreads. Most customers take out, but there are tables... More

Quick service, tasty sandwiches and a variety of additional choices for a tasty bite to eat. Reasonable prices, too. Well worth stopping here!

Great choice for breakfast and lunch. Wide selection of different kinds of bagels. Bagels always fresh, often still warm. Many choices of assorted cream cheese. Bagel sandwiches, salad and soups available for lunch. Good for families. Service is fast.

Bodo's is the absolute best bagel sandwich shop. The best tasting bagel, but, regardless of how busy they are, you will always get the best bagel faster than fast food restaurants.

I've tried bagels in lots of different places, and Bodo's is as good as - if not better - than any other. Atmosphere is a little blah, and lines are often long, but it's worth the wait. Definitely a must try in Charlottesville.
