Best unexpected NJ dish voted by ‘Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives’
The ultimate question in my house is, “What’s for dinner?” It’s not that hard of a question to answer until it’s one of those days where we get to order out. Then that question becomes impossible.

This place is making around 15,000 bagels a week. They have 20 different options available, but the bagel mixed with chopped jalapenos and shredded cheddar cheese is still standing out to Guy Fieri.
If you want to try it yourself, here is where Bagel Street is located:
