bagels in San Antonio

I just moved to San Antonio and am missing good, fresh bagels. Any recommendations? Any other outstanding restaurants that you want to share?
Welcome to San Antonio!
As anyone from the East Coast would decry, there are no good bagels to be had anywhere else but New York City. But try Benny's Bagels, they're in the book and really good.
There are lots of great places to eat in San Antonio because so many different types of people live here. (Hey! We wouldn't be America's 3rd fattest city for no reason! Incidently, New Orleans -#1, Chicago-#2) My warning would be to approach all Mexican/Tex-Mex food carefully, since there is a lot of crap out there. Try Rosario's (1014 S. Alamo St.) down in the King William district for some good stuff. Skip everything on the Riverwalk because it's trash. Town and Country has great barbeque. If you're looking for something more ethnic, let me know because I can tell you pretty much the best stuff in town. The San Antonio Express-News publishs a good restaurant magazine that has some good recommendations every once and a while. Give it a shot.
Just discovered chowhounds, thanks to Calvin Trillin's piece in the latest New Yorker magazine.
The best bagels we've found lately are at Benny's Bagels on Huebner at Bitters.
You missed the most marvelous bagels several years ago, when Steve and Peggy Shearer owned and operated The Bagel Worx.
Delicious Deli has bagels at the only Kosher market in town. It's at Callahan off Fredericksburg.
Big Apple Bagels has several locations and just opened on Houston Street. The Hyatt Regency has a bagel shop but I can't remember the name. I've lived here 5 years ago and you really couldn't find much in the way of bagels but they've really caught on lately!
Big Apple Bagel
8434 Fredericksburg Rd, San Antonio, TX 78229
Big Apple bagels on Fredricksburg road are good, I'd rate
them 7 out of 10 for San Antonio. Bagels Factory @ 15909 San Pedro beats them all. In San Antonio, Bagels Factory is as good as it gets for bagels. In San Antonio and for that matter they
are 9 out of ten. Want better bagels? Hop a flight to New York city, New Jersey, or
