Some cities are famous for their bagels, but you can find delicious ones just about anywhere. The staple breakfast food is served in tons of different ways, so Eat This, Not That! is pointing out the best bagels in your state.

The ultimate food content hub points out that those with traditional tastebuds might order “plain, egg, onion, and everything bagels topped with cream cheese, and there are more adventurous bagel fanatics who like to turn the simple pastry into a sandwich filled with everything from eggs to guacamole.” To figure out where to order the best bagels, Eat This, Not That! considered reviews, opinions of locals, and reflected on their own experiences to compile their list.

So, which one stands out in Illinois? Eat This, Not That! says the bagels from Kaufman’s Bagel and Delicatessen are the best. Here’s why the bagel shop in Skokie stands out:

“Established in 1960 by Manny Kaufman, this suburban stalwart has "the best bagels outside of NYC" and bakes them fresh daily. Top your classic bagel with chopped liver or lox, or try a pastrami on rye at lunchtime.”
