There were still spots in the parking lot, but the line was almost to the door when we entered. However, it moved lightning quick and we were placing our order within 5-8 minutes! We had a couple of special instructions for the customer service reps, which they followed to a "T". We had never been to Bodo's before, but our... More

Great for a quick and cheap lunch, their bagels are fresh and tasty. Had the roast beef with provolone on an everything bagel, definitely worth a try!

Phenomenal Bagels that taste like they came from New York. Delicious plain, or as a BLT, or traditional with cream cheese, lox (very generous portion) and onion. I don't think there is a bad choice on the menu. Restaurant ambience is friendly, and active. Definitely a must when in Charlottesville!

So busy, but fast service. Great bagels. Good college vibe. Good flavor on an egg bagel sandwich. Just right for breakfast after a redeye.

Stopped here on a Sunday morning as a meeting place for us with friends. The bagels are locally famous and justifiably so. They are light, tasty and the egg bagel I had for breakfast was filling but not too. The line of customers was out the door but Bodo's staff handles the crowd with grace and efficiency. Although Bodo's was... More

I love this place and will even plan trips so I can go through Charlottesville, during their store hours. Water comes from NYC, which is the key to making authentic bagels.

No trip to Cville is complete without a trip to Bodo's... the best bagels south of Manhattan! Bodos is also the quintessential Charlottesville small business.

If you're looking for a no nonsense good bagel at a reasonable price then go here. This is the place where the locals go. Store is a little award, kind of looks like an old Wendy's, but who cares when the food is good.

The bagels are the best. THE BEST. served warm with a large variety of quality sandwich toppings. It is self serve (order and pick up at the counter). Don't let the long lines, almost always present, discourage you. They move quickly.

Thank halcho
