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. The prices are great the service is great and the bagels are to die for!! I stop in twice a week usually for an... More

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

Our family has been visiting Best Bagels every weekend for the last 19 years. The original owners, Pam & Jim were always very friendly and kept the atmosphere uncomplicated and quaint. We loved that it always seem to have the same locals rotate through each visit. Now that Maria & Chip have taken ownership, little has changed and the family... More

I discovered Best Bagels and Deli from a Groupon ad, of all places. I've lived in Sevierville for 6 years now and have been disappointed that bagel options consist really of Lenders out of the freezer, Panera or Einstein. Panera and Einstein bagels are more like rolls. They're not really bagels. So when I discovered Best Bagels I was thrilled.... More

Tucked away in a corner of a small strip plaza off Kingston Pike, this locally-owned restaurant serves absolutely the best bagel sandwiches in Knoxville bar none. I can only go so long without munching down a "sausage, egg and cheese on a toasted sesame." But they have every type of big and chewy bagel, made on the premises. If you... More
