I've had bagels from here before but never eaten at the establishment. After a lengthy visit working on a paper and fellowshipping with friends, I hands down agree they have the best bagels and the best service. You can choose from a variety of bagels and spreads or upgrade to a sandwich. Standard drinks with free refills. Amazing service!

I've been patronizing Best Bagels on and off since the 1990s for two reasons: the food is great (I always get scrambled eggs on a whole wheat bagel), and the price is more than right. My tab came to less than $5.00 this morning, and that included a Diet Coke (free refills). Usually the Knoxville News Sentinel is sitting on... More

So I ordered a Nova Delux bagel, with cream cheese and lox, tomato, onion, and capers. The guy at the window said they hadn't had capers in 20 years, but just got them in, and would I like some? Yes, I would. Service was fast and friendly, and the bagel was good. There were no capers, however. I missed them.... More

I made a purchase at best bagel using a half off certificate I purchased off Local Flavor. They didn't seem happy or treat me like they valued my business because I was using the certificate. I bought a box of bagels which I was told came with 2 small flavored cream cheeses and one large regular. After I got to... More

I rarely give excellent reviews, and certainly not for hole-in-the-wall bagel places. But something about the simplicity and deliciousness about this place has me hooked. First, getting lost. You won't see the place from the street - it's on the back side. And once you walk in it's not the snazziest spot. But...the bagels taste delicious and the coffee is... More

We had to hunt this one down but it was worth the search. We had a Everything bagel, egg and cheese and vege spread. Very good. Their ice tea was very good also. We ordered a spinach bagel to go and they simply dropped it in a paper bag? So the customer service wasn't stellar but the food makes up... More

I love this place! It's a small little shop in a strip mall off Kingston Pike that you drive by everyday without even knowing it's there. They have a drive through and are quick and wonderful.

I discovered this bagel place through their other location in downtown Knoxville in the First Tennessee Building on Gay Street. They offer many different flavored bagels with a great selection of sandwich fixin's and salads. They also have breakfast items like danish. My favorite is a plain bagel, with cream cheese and lox, and done in the traditional way. They... More
