Absolutely, hands down, the best bagels we have ever had. We went to the location on Emmett Street. My niece attends UVA, so I picked her up, and we headed there. I admit, the line was very, very long. Now I know why. They are WORTH waiting for. Even though the line was long, it moved quickly and smoothly. The... More

Bodo's by far has the best bagels in the area. Their bagels are some of the best I have ever had. They have a wide variety of bagels and cream cheese. The bagel sandwiches are not great but they are very good. My favorite is the everything bagel with veggie cream cheese. The dinning area is clean and has a... More

Amazing burgers from quality local makings. Probably a wait for lunch, but worth it. The daily special "mini" priced well and plenty for most appetites.

Bodo's Bagels is a sangwidge shop-type restaurant. The sangwidges are served on bagels. Bodo's Bagels are the only bagels I've eaten that are as good as bagels made in Jewish bakeries in New York and Philadelphia. In my opinion, the bagels are far better than any other bagels available south of Philly. The cold cuts and other sangwidge fills are... More

Bodo's is famous for its truly New York-style bagels. It has three locations in C'ville, all of which are filled to capacity on Sunday mornings. The sandwiches or cream-cheese toppings are all excellent. Their salads and soups are equally popular. Grab a table and eat with locals, or grab them to go and, if the weather is fine, head to...

I've been to this restaurant once although many co-workers seem to eat here weekly. My bagel was fresh and fast, prepared as ordered. Although the place gets very busy, they are very efficient and serve customers quickly. The dated seating area and prices are what has put my rating at less than excellent, but I would return if I get... More

We often visit the Bodo's on Preston and Emmet Street, and find the quality and selection very good. The ordering process can take awhile depending on the time of day, but the selection and menu items are very enticing!! I always enjoy the everything bagel with BLT. Sides are extra and beverages and condiments are self service. The Caesar salad... More

Charlottesville has an iconic breakfast and lunch restaurant. Do NOT let the long line deter you, it moves FAST, and the food is worth it. The best Caesar Salad in town, the bagels being traditionally cooked right in your sight, it does not get better than this. I think our family has had everything on the menu, and LOVED every...
