I used to love their Tuna Salad on a Onion Bagel on the way home once a week from work around 5:30 and now they close I think at 3:00, but I guess the owner decided it was not cost effective on dinner time sales....It was never real busy at that time which I guess it was at lunch.More

Yummy bagels. Made for a quick breakfast stop on a Saturday morning. Ordered the garlic one and it was delicious! Very generous with their spreads.

I have been going to Marx since they were at Valley Center off Reading road, over 40 years. I think they have the best bagels and still the only place I know of to get Dr Browns Cel-Ray. However the last time I was there,...3/17/21 I spent $70.69 on a take out order and was shorted by half on the lox I ordered. The time before that I was shorted a dozen bagels and the time before that two dozen bagels. It was easy to notice the missing bagels and they corrected the order when I pointed out the shortage. I didn't notice the half order of lox until I got home. So, go to Marx, but be careful on verifying your take out order.More

They Have Most Any Kind Of Bagel 🥯. Hot Bagels 🥯 No. They Put It In Toaster & Heat It A Bit. My Tuna Salad 🥗 Sandwich Was Nothing But A Wheat Bagel Cut In Half With Tuna Salad On Top. My Wife Had A...Honey Grain Bagel With Strawberry 🍓 CC. Barley Warm. Could Have Done Better At Home. Also Could Have Saved Money At Home. Bill Was $12.00. We Will Know The Next Trip Not To Stop At Marx Hot Bagels 🥯.More

As soon as I entered, I wanted to leave. There was a strange smell. Then I saw some men and children dressed in strange attire with something like a skull cap and long hair running down their ears and a thread running outside their trousers....All clad in black. It looked like some kind of voodoo. This was before I even reached the counter through a space that resembled an old style run down diner. The everything bagel tasted weird even though they claimed it was NY style. Then I saw a sign that said kosher or something and I hadno clue what it was but it may explain the strange tasting bagel. Never again.More

The women in my family love bagels. My mom, my wife, sister-in-law -- they love bagels. I can't say I feel the same way. But even someone like myself, who is essentially indifferent about bagels, can appreciate the quality and excellent taste offered up at...Marx. (And, predictably, those in my family who love bagels are especially impressed with Marx.) I have been here several times over the past few years, and Marx has consistently delivered delicious bagels with generous spreads on top. I had seen that some people seemed unhappy with the restaurant since a change in ownership earlier this year. I can tell you that I didn't notice a difference. The bagels were as good as ever, the place looked the same as I had seen in prior visits, and I left feeling just as satisfied as before. We certainly plan on going back.More

Was driving home from a family vacay and had to stop here for my favorite Cincy bagels and cream cheese. Sadly found out the owner sold his business to a new owner recently. Seems to still taste the same and be as good as I...once remembered except the batch I got was a lot darker (more burnt) than in the past. Still a great bagel shop thoughMore

The best for bagels, toppings and atmosphere. We have visited many bagel shops and none have come close. Fun and friendly service. Access and parking are fine.

I had fun here on a day before Passover. The sign on the front door indicated that the owner was politically incorrect and he was right there, behind the counter offering his opinions. It was like live theater since the people in line knew him...and egged him on. I think people come here for the entertainment as well as for their bagels or meal. This establishment has sandwiches to go or eat in, and bakery/catering available. Recommend for anyone who likes this kind of thing.More

I have always headed over since 1997 for the best bagels in the Midwest. Very unique. Grab a bagel with cream cheese and a cup of good coffee and have a seat and take in the variety of people that visit. This place in in...a strip mall area in Blue Ash. True bagels, boilerplates and baked with a crunchy crisp outside with any flavor you want served with a generous amount of fluffy cream cheese. I have not tried but the tuna salad is supposed to be the best.....maybe the next trip. I asked if they ship and they do not....too bad....enjoy!More

Don't you just get turned off watching the worker spray poison on the floor and lower table legs behind the counter while another staff member is preparing your food. Let me think about the aerosol affect of the spray and the mist landing on my...food. Value add I guess. Never been back. Never will go back. Gross.More
