In recent days, Jeff Eats has seen a number of tractor trailers loaded with cars with New York and New Jersey license plates- unloading their “cargo”- so to save time, let me answer the inevitable “best bagels” questions by reprinting this Jeff Eats’ article from February 23, 2015…

Long time reader.
I know you don’t like or really do ‘best’ lists.
Indulge me, if it came down to just one south Florida joint, which one would it be for bagels?
I won’t tell anyone.
You know that ‘best’ lists really aren’t my game…that said, if you promise not to tell anyone!
And- thanks for reading.

Bagel City South makes some of the best New York styled bagels and bialys in South Florida. The stuff is made the old fashioned way, that being hand rolled, boiled and then oven baked.
The joint is open 7 days a week for breakfast and lunch. Great place for appetizing, burgers, deli, eggs and of course those fantastic bagels/bialys.
Sassy waitresses and talkative countermen add to the New York flavor. This is a real good one.
I have been a customer for close to 20 years. They definitely have the best bagels in south Florida same for their bialys. Their food is decent enough.
The bagels are okay, but the bialys stand out!!
Bagels, bialys, delicious.
Get their flagels they are amazing.
I completely agree…their bagels are the real thing…a normal size, brown and chewy on the outside— not those big spongey things the other bagel places serve.
Just like the ones I grew up on from Watson’s Bagels in old Newark!
I agree 100% that the bagels are the best.
Definitely the best bagels in south Florida.
Food is ok but bagels are amazingly good.
These are bagels like those you get in NYC.
BEST BAGELS IN SOUTH FLORIDA.
Just that simple!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Have to agree they make terrific bagels, bialys etc. I also really enjoy their food. This is one of the best bagel restaurants in Florida.
the joint had a fire in june. still closed.
Ate there yesterday and the bagels are the best around.
I have been down here from NY for 24 years. No question about it, Bagel City makes the best NY Style bagels. As good as any bagel in NYC and that’s no lie.
Jeff you know I love your stuff – BUT
When you give an address could you also give a location –
Name of shopping center or other local location info –
Have no idea where Southwest 18th street is – Bagel City – Is it in a shopping center ?
How about I pick you up, drive you there, pay for your bagels, then drive you home?
Go call the freaking store for directions.
Thanks for reading…
Just do a quick search of BAGEL CITY SOUTH on GOOGLE and the directions will jump right out at you…..Still, that’s a very kind chauffeur offer from JEFF EATS…..
They make delicious bagels. I am originally from the Bronx and I think the bagels are as good if not better than ones I grew up on in Bronx 1970s. Bagel City’s food is also very good. It is definitely one of the best bagel delis in Boca.
Store looks great since fire remodel. Bagels are still the best going.
They make the best bagels in Fl.
Best bagels in Florida.
Have to agree with you, best bagels.
Tried for first time and loved my western omelette. My toasted ET w/cream cheese was delicious. Took out a mixed dozen bagels and thus far the onion and pumpernickel that I’ve had were terrific.
Best bagel by a mile in Florida.
Right you are. I haven’t found better anywhere in Florida.
No question about it, the best bagels in Florida. Don’t believe me? Go and try them. You can thank me later.
They make the real deal NY bagels.
New to Boca. Tried yesterday.
Followed your recommendation and I agree delicious bagels and bialys.
