The bagel is a popular food choice for spies, who peer through the hole to discreetly survey their environs and utilize mouthfuls of the chewy bread to disguise their voices when phoning their moms. Hide behind a bounty of bready delights with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of bagels, coffee, sandwiches, and more at Bagel Boyz Deli in Arlington.
Bagel Boyz Deli brings several new twists to the long-standing tradition of the New York–style bagel. Stuffy bagel purists may grow faint witnessing the avant garde application of house-made spicy queso to The Boyz breakfast sandwich with sausage and egg ($4.49), and bagel buffs who like their edibles stuffed will seek refuge in the deli's array of piled-high sandwiches, wraps, and burritos. The New York Reuben hosts a party of corned beef, sauerkraut, swiss cheese, and mustard on a dance floor of pumpernickel or poppy seed bagel ($5.69), and the chicken salad wrap ($5.49) demonstrates that embracing a bird doesn't require a trip to Sesame Street. Unadorned carb circles come in many varieties—from classics such as cinnamon raisin and blueberry to the more adventurous green chili ($1.19)—but are rarely seen far from their entourage of cream cheeses, including garden veggie, spicy, honey almond, and more.
Outdoor enthusiasts allergic to outdoor air will appreciate the floor-to-ceiling windows that line Bagel Boyz' sparkling clean and colorful dining area, where five flavors of coffee coexist peacefully among the waves of free WiFi. The deli is open for breakfast and lunch.
