Big Bon Stacking up to the Hype

The family behind the famed mobile pizza oven sets their sights on that other iconic NYC cuisine.

For years, Kay Heritage and her family have been crisscrossing the Coastal Empire with their mobile pizza oven, serving up slice after slice of their signature pizzas. A Big Bon pie treads a line between Neopolitan and Americano, with a perfect balance of crispiness and sourdough-style texture, creating one of the best pizza experiences south of Staten Island.

With Big Bon Bodega, they have again thrown down the flour-speckled gauntlet with their own take on a New York City bagel. And once again, they have crafted something that shines, a uniquely Southern bagel with its red oak-fired flavor infusing hand-formed dough boiled in local honey and molasses. Try it on the 912, a breakfast bagel with buttery soft eggs and thick-cut bacon, with a mug of their dark-roast Bodega blend.
