We drove from Richmond and stopped on our way to Carter Mountain. The line on a Saturday morning was going out of the door and winding out. They had good selection of bagels - live their everything bagel, walnut cream cheese and their veggie cream cheese. Coffee is good as well and they have average size area to sit and... More

BODOS rocks! Tasty, affordable, they keep the line rollings and consistent. This is a favorite for all, students, visitors, families - even pet friendly outside. ;o) Bodo's chicken salad, Cleo salad and BLT are our favorites to order. If you are in Charlottesville - no question - you should visit BODOS. ;o)

A bagel joint is the #2 restaurant in Charlottesville? Come on! Then I noticed the line on a Sunday am but was still skeptical. The line wasn't as bad as it looked, although parking was a challenge. We may have parked illegally at the cabin-like establishment below but there were no signs stating as such... We ordered the everything wheat... More

We really enjoyed the bagels. The service was prompt and the prices are quite reasonable. We bought extras to take home.

Everyone knows Bodo's is the best. Better than NY bagels. The people are really nice and the line moves pretty quick (when there is one). Get involved.

A favorite place to grab a delicious bagel or bagel sandwich, located within the UVA campus district.

Best sandwiches on bagels in town. Winner. I love the everything bagels. Great also to run in and get a couple dozen with flavored cream cheese.

The breakfast bagel sandwich was very good. The Roast beef sandwich bagel was good, too. The place was quite busy but the staff is very efficient and was able to take and fulfill orders quickly. I will go again when I'm in town.

Bodo's is a must for a C'ville visitor. The absolute best bagels around--good for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. You would have a hard time spending more than $15 for two people. My wife and I have bagels and a split a Cleo salad and that is all we could possibly eat (for lunch or dinner). Just wish they would open... More

Always packed but the line moves quickly--even when it is out the door, as it often is. . You need to know what you want before you get in line with all of the regulars who have their orders down pat! Veggie options can be found here. I love the "NO-BULL!" The place is clean and service is always with... More
