Great!

The pizza here is fantastic! It is consistently rated one of the best pizza places in NJ and rightfully so. The downfalls are the dilapidated bathrooms and outdated, old decor. There is also an older female bartender who is always rude and behaves poorly to customers.

Have been coming to Kinchley's for forty years now, no kidding. Just can't stay away from their thin crust pizza. In all those years, we've had an rare dud or two, but 99 percent of the time they've been tops! We've tried pizza with pepperoni, with onions, with garlic, with peppers, with anchovies, etc., but we always return to the... More

Kincley's pizza is a unique, thin crust pizza that everyone needs to try if you haven't already done so.

Kinchley's is an old fashioned roadhouse serving excellent thin crust pizza, traditional pasta, burgers, etc and of course, beer, wine, and cocktails. Crowded during dinner times yet worth the wait if you want some of the best pizza west of the Atlantic.

The reviews for this place are amazing, and it's always packed so they have to be doing something right. I have been here twice, attempting to capture an amazing thin crust pizza. The first time we got toppings. The flavors did not blend well, the pizza was on the greasy side, and was flopping all over. You need to eat... More

You definitely do not go to Kichley's for the ambiance. It's a little hole in the wall place with approximately 20 tables, a small bar and they only accept cash. But if you're looking for delicious thin crust pizza this is the place to be. Even their cold & hot appetizers and eggplant parm entrees are mouthwatering. Their beers on... More

We went here based on a recommendation from the local hotel our friend was staying at. It was very small and thus very cramped--we didn't have anywhere to stand that wasn't in the way while we waited for our table to open up but we were happy to wait because the place was buzzing and everything looked delicious. The pizza... More

MC, it sounds like we dropped the ball on our service, and we're really sorry about that. Even though we were busy, you're absolutely right, you deserve top-notch service from us. Thank you for speaking up about this -- be assured, we'll make sure to speak to our team to make sure we're better prepared the next time this happens.... More

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.
