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.

Anthony Franza,

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.

    Get their flagels they are amazing.

  4. Marsha says...

    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.

  14. Ruth G says...

    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.

      Have to agree with you, best bagels.
