Soon you will be able to get your Rocksar Bagels direct from the oven. Owner Joe Humel is opening a production facility with a walk-up window at 1900 Rosewood Ave. in the former J.R.’s BBQ space.

Until now, the bagels from the Queens native have only been available through one of Rockstar’s 70 wholesale clients. Humel hopes to open by Sunday, and says he plans to have the window available for walk-up clients from 7 .am. to about noon for the first month, while they get their footing.

Rockstar will sell its 10 standard flavors, and some experimental flavors, with a variety of spreads, as well as bagel sandwiches like bacon, egg and cheese and bacon, lettuce, and tomato.

Humel says he eventually wants to make Rock Star a lunch operation and extend the hours till about 5 p.m.
