    when you make a article about best bagels in maryland, how about you include some places other than baltimore area. you should rename this article to best bagels in baltimore county.

    How is Goldberg’s not on this list? What Goyisha voted these the best?

    Although the customer service is lacking, Goldbergs in Pikesville makes a fantastic bagel!

    Is Maryland composed entirely of Baltimore? I shall not bother to read any further recommendations from this site–I do not respect false advertizing,

    • Seriously?

      Also, you shall not spell advertising with a “Z.”

      I agree. Baltimore is not Maryland. In fact, I consider Baltimore a vast region and not defined by the boundaries of City or County. I am looking for local businesses all over Maryland for my company Culture Cards, Let me know of ones you think people should know about.

    Agreed, Goldberg’s service was so rude, I’ll never go back there, and you shouldn’t either, unless you enjoy being abused and insulted by people you are trying to give your money to….jerks! My question is , where can you get a good bagel, like in NY? I’ve tried a few that are on the list and they are lacking. One good way to tell is, does the everything bagel hav e salt? If not, it’s not a real bagel shop.

    Goldbergs in Pikesville is not very good and as mentioned the staff are very rude. The best bagels are Quarry Lake Bagel still in Pikesville but service and taste is 100x’s better!!
