If you like thin crust pizza, this is the place to go. Kinchley's is a no frills tavern and the prices are right. It can get crowded at peak times, and they don't take credit cards. I have had spaghetti there a few times as well as the mussels. Both are ok, but it is the pizza that keeps me... More

Absolutely the best "thin" crust style pizza that I've had over the last 60 years (and that's one heck of a lot of pizzas)! My wife's cousin (grew up in Ramsey, NJ) often spoke in raptures of the pizza there. He even traveled from Wilkes-barre (Pocono Mountains) PA to join the other cousins for a reunion yesterday at Kinchley's. FWIW,... More

The title says it all. Prices are reasonable. The wait can be crazy on a weekend. The only downside is it is cash only.

Our family has frequented Kinchley's for over 40 years. Thin crust pizza is always ordered although the mussels in sauce also rate 5 stars. Fast and friendly staff. Stopped on the ride home from ice hockey practice years ago for their all-you-can-eat specials on Monday nights.

Kinchleys is one of the biggest enigmas around. I have lived here for forty years, and I have heard many people say how the love Kinchleys pizza. But my wife and I both think it is terrible pizza. It tastes like frozen pizza. The crust is way too thin and is always over cooked. My wife says it's like eating... More

It's disappointing that you and your wife aren't fans of our thin crust pizza, but that's ok. Being around since '37, our thin crust has been a hit with many locals in the area. We understand though that people might have different tastes, so it's clear that maybe our thin crust just isn't your thing. We do appreciate you giving... More

the service and the food was excellent. Their thin pizza is absolutely outstanding. The only drawbacks that I encountered was: they only take cash, and it is quite small. They have specials on certain nights, and it does get crowded. So consider getting there early or you

no one makes thin crust pizza like Kinchley's Tavern. Have been coming back to this great place for over 25 years. No one makes thin crust pizza like this place. I would travel miles just to come here. Now live in Orange County, NY and will travel just to have their thin crust pizza.
