When we moved to Reading, MA, last year, we were told " oh you are just down the street from Bagel World". We could not believe the line to get into their establishment....WELL WORTH THE 20 minute wait. They are truly the BEST Bagels in our area

The bagels are exceptional. Truly. The parking and the wait, whether to order inside or using the drive-through, can be simply too much. As the years have gone by, service has become less friendly. Try very very early or off-hours.

These are fantastic bagels. No flair. Picture Seinfelds "soup nazi" episode, replacing soup with bagels. Wait in a looooong line, step up, place your order, hand your money...eat delightful bagels. Avoid the drive thru at all costs.

The bagels are superior and the strawberry spread is a bonus. Peak hours make parking a frustrating challenge. What has gone downhill, unfortunately, is the attitude of many of the servers. Sometimes surly.

Not much to say other than these are the best bagels ever. I'm partial to the French Toast bagels. If there's a line, don't give up - it's worth the wait!

They have very good bagels, pro tip call ahead so you don't have to wait in line. The lines can get aggressive so plan ahead.

This bagel shop located on busy Route 28. The bagels are very overated but the lines of people would have you believe they are worth the wait. The owner is a disrespectful, inconsiderate jerk. He has a very poor traffic flow for the drive thru which ends up spilling cars onto the highway. It's just a matter of time before... More

Back to Marlborough on my way from Salem ... quick stop for a Bagel. Great Bagel Sandwichs .... great smiles, great service! Whoever was the young lady handing me the waste basket for my empty coffee-to-go-cup: Great service and the most beautiful smile I saw today! You made my day! :-)

Bagel World has great food! Unfortunately its so popularity that it can get crowded. Give it a try! It is good.

Being from New York City I am pretty picky about my bagels. The bagels at Bagel World III are the best I have tasted. Now be patient because they are not fast if you want to have a bagel prepared. Better off to use the express line buy your bagels and prepare it elsewhere.
