Awesome!

Bodo's is awesome. The service is fast, the food is great, and everything is so fresh. If you are in town and you want bagels or just a good sandwich this is the place to go!

Great, cheap meal when you don't have time to sit and eat. Went to two different locations. Both were awesome. The one by campus is nicer, but the food was fantastic at both locations.

Awesome bagels, delicious homemade cream cheese, great sandwiches and homemade soups! And I love their Cleo salad! As a local, I probably go 1-3 times a month. Never disappoints! :)

Always hot delicious and fast even when the line is long! The bagels have just the right amount of chew and the flavors are good.

Bodo's is near The English Inn (where we often stay) and my parents' old house, which is why we often get a dozen bagels when family are visiting. They also make sandwiches (at least breakfast sandwiches). This can get really crowded on a weekend morning.

A thick, doughy carbohydrate staple in the diet of the local university students. Bodo's offers bagels and bagel sandwiches convenient for a car full of carb craving co-eds(males included), kids & nostalgic UVa alumni. Was excited to hear about Bodo's after living in the Northeast corridor but after visiting, something's missing. Flavor! But I will keep trying. I understand that... More

A great C'Ville institution. Everything is yummy from a hearty deli egg to a light salad. You can't go wrong. The bagels are delicious and the wide variety of toppings are always fresh.

Who doesn't love Bodo's? Best bagels outside of NYC!! Hubby and I go almost every morning for brunch. So good and incredibly reasonably priced. Before we moved to C'ville, on our visits, we would load up and freeze them when we got home so we could savor them until our next Charlottesville visit.

Ran by downtown Bobo's to grab a quick sandwich on the go. Had the egg salad on a plain bagel with lettuce and tomato. They charge for the tomato, but the sandwich was still very inexpensive. The restaurant was clean and service was fast. The egg salad was a little bland, but that's better than an off the wall flavor.

After reading reviews, we couldn't wait to go and try these bagels. This is THE place to be in the morning! They handle the crowds well and in no time you have your delicious bagel! Great variety and the prices are very reasonable! You won't be disappointed!
