The bagel, like the circle from which it takes its shape, is a metaphor for life; it literally never ends. Enjoy eternally enticing eats with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of food and drink at Bagel Lox in Chester.
Not content with limiting itself to round, perforated baked goods, the family-owned-and-operated Bagel Lox greets rising suns and rumbling stomachs with full breakfast and lunch menus. Stop the most important meal of the day’s incessant boasting by stuffing its mouth with an egg-filled breakfast burrito ($1.50) or a cream-cheese- and lox-covered bagel ($2.49-$5.70). Multiple food groups meet their daily nutrient-providing quota in the Bagel Lox Bonanza, with two eggs, two pieces of bacon, and a sausage patty trading favorite childhood memories with home fries and toast ($7.95).
Lunchtime sees sandwiches, salads, soup, and burgers emerge from hiding and join their morning counterparts in the quest for appetite suppression. Sides of fries, chips, and onion rings ($1–$2.75) look up to full-grown entrees such as the Berean, a stacking of roast beef, turkey, ham, coleslaw, and thousand-island dressing on either a bagel, kaiser roll, rye bread, or wrap ($6.89). Or try the Matoaca panini, a roast beef and provolone playground ripe for dipping in homemade au jus ($6.89) or putting on the other end of a teeter-totter.
