The ghosts of pizza past will smile down on you as Kinchley's pizza melts in your mouth. Gum wood paneling and red and white checked tablecloths make you feel like 1930's NYC -- but it's the real article. The wait staff is great and look to have been serving there for years. This place is a time warp that does... More

I really don't understand how this place is so popular. Yes, thin crust is great for pizza but the flavor is all wrong. Taste like they use sauce from a jar. Much better pizza elsewhere.

We're disappointed you weren't impressed with our pizza, but we totally understand if someone has different flavor preferences. We assure you our sauce doesn't come from a jar. That being said, we'd love to welcome you back to try something else on our menu, since we do have a big Italian menu to look through. It'd be great to have... More

Good Italian restaurant with extensive menu. Their thin pizza is the best I've had. Place has been around for years and could use a refresh. Gets crowded, so plan ahead. Takes only cash. Service is very good and prices are reasonable.

We've gotten pizza - plain, meatball, garlic, bacon, onion, pepperoni, sausage, chicken and others and have loved them all. Pasta dishes, too. Cash only!!! Service good, but it's funny, always slow to take money and bring change.

Best thin crust pizza I ever ate. Anyone staying in NJ should go and try this place out. I ate the simple margarita pizza and it was crackling thin crust and got finished in seconds

If you like thin crust pizza. Your search is over. The best. Other selections? Not so hot. Cash only. But there is a cash machine.

There is one server there that has been there forever with an attitude. Feel very rushed can not sit and enjoy your meal with out having someone with an attitude waiting for where table. The pizza was first know for it's thin crust. but nothing special any more. Cant understand why they are so busy!

Great pizza, good beer on tap. Just a heads up, though - this is an all cash place. Try the sautéed onions pizza. Highly recommended!

The sautéed onions pizza is such a good choice! Good call. We're glad you loved the pizza and beer, too. Thanks for the great review and we hope you come back to try more on our menu! We suggest the fried ravioli next time -- or just stick to what you know you already love, the pizza. Until next time!... More

Kinchley's is easily the best pizza in NJ and probably the 2nd best pizza in the entire tri-state area (tutonos in staten island has it beat). If you go here and order anything other than pizza, it may be good, but you made a huge mistake. It may look and feel like a bar, but this a pizza place that... More
