When we first moved to NJ decades ago, locals raved about this place -- no, rather, they expressed reverence about this place. We were skeptical and actually our first experience here those very many years ago was less than delicious. So, we stayed away. Then we tried it again and saw what folks were so excited about and now we count ourselves among their fans (we have since tried to follow the rule of trying a place twice before making a judgment). We only get the pizza here and the pizza is fantastic. It's thin crust with a great range of topping options (I always get extra cheese, onions and homemade meatballs). You can get beverages in pitchers for the table. That's all you need. Well, actually, I do wish they gave you a serving spatula with your pizza but they do not. And, as others have mentioned, it's cash only. There is a bar and the dining room is super casual, with red and white checked tablecloths, basic tables and chairs, and old wooden booths. Service is usually super efficient and nice. We were here last during Thanksgiving weekend later one evening and even though I'm guessing they must have had a busy day, our waiter was still really energetic and attentive. And our pizza was just lovely. We usually don't get appetizers but this night we had some great soft pretzel sticks with a beer-y tasting cheese sauce and my hubby and one of our friends also had some chicken wings (I didn't get their evaluation on those). So I guess you can say that since we've lived here for a number of decades now we're part of the locals who now recommend Kinchley's pizza!
Great service food was the best. Just a comfortable place to go.
They have all you can eat Ravioli Mondays! Which was A1. We brought part of the microgang was lit. Thincrust pizza was incredible you should try it! We out here
Best place ever the pizza is awesome. I would recommend you should go their. Just be aware it is cash only but there is an atm.
Best pizza ever!!!
Best thin crust pizza
First time there everyone loved it got to give it an A+ just get there before the rush a little tight the tables
Best bar pizza in NJ, hands down. Cash only though
Good food and service
Terrific place. The food is good the value is terrific. It's always busy, and very tight dot-dot-dot you can't fit a wheelchair in here! Try the black and white ice cream soda.
There is no pizza better than this. Period.
My colleague and I were in Jersey for business today. I had seen Kinchleys on Bar Stool sports and wanted to give it a try. The inside was an awesome old school tavern with lots of cool trains under glass. The staff was very friendly and sarcastic we had lots of laughs. The pizza is one of the best I have ever had. I will be back for sure. Cheers from Canada
Great atmosphere - Great pizza.
Good chicken parm and pizza.
Fantastic bar and Italian food. Cash only. Great atmosphere, and efficient service!
This place is always referenced when discussing best pizza places in NJ, and there's a reason for that. The pizza is amazing. Crispy thin-crust goodness. You can't go wrong with the pizza here. House salad was also fresh and sizable (probably large enough for 3 people!). If you're looking for old school and amazing pizza, put Kinchley's on your list. Note: cash only, no credit cards. ATM on-site.
Same great pizza year after year
Kinchley's is literally the only place in the Rockland / Bergan county area you should bother having pizza. I've been coming here for over 25 years and I still love it each time!
Easy mood, good food, casual vibe.
