Good Bar Pizza. Crust was charred and crunchy. Cheese and sauce where both good. Overall good but not great.

This famous bar pie is a good local tryout. Cooked with a light crunch and a tangy sauce. Ratio all around could be better but overall worth a trip.

Portnoy was off the mark on this one. Thin, crispy, light, with a quality stand-out cheese. Healthy under carriage and a subtle yet satisfying sauce. Really no downsides. Beasted this pie with my dad. Since 1937, a great institution.

Very cool atmosphere, very old school... thin crust , I describe as a cracker, great taste, sauce on the sweet side, good sauce to cheese ratio, one of the best thin crust pizza’s around. I think this boarder line travel pizza , so I am thinking somewhere between a 7.9-8.1, but I am going with...

Awesome pizza, especially the cheese. Great atmosphere inside too.

Kinchley’s has been making ultra thin crust style bar pies with a recipe that has been in their family for over 70 years. Even their “large” pies are smallish, personal size and oddly sliced unevenly. This tastes exactly like a Mama Celeste frozen pie if it was made fresh. The dough is tasty but too floppy for a bar pie, needs some crisping. However, the crust is super crunchy, perfectly crispy and delicious. A little too much oil atop the pie, needs some dabbing. It’s surprisingly saucy considering there’s really no where to hide it; but the sauce has a nice taste and quality kick providing flavor that conquers the flow of the grease. The cheese isn’t tight like a typical bar pie; it’s pretty oozy & generic and might be the main reason this pizza tastes like Mama Celeste. Overall, it’s an incredibly solid pie but needs to be cooked a little more well done. Worth a try if you’re in a half hour radius but I wouldn’t travel too far for it. There are several better bar pies in NJ; but this looks like a great place to grab some beers and watch a game.

Eating here for 30 years never disappoints . With Jenny’s , the old judge , and pintos along with Barcelona’s and Jerry’s new Naples long gone Kinchleys is the best

It's good, definitely worth trying if you're in the area, and the place is very cool. Other food was good as well. Does it live up to "best pizza in NJ" per some magazine review? No. It's good though. Probably one of the best in the Mahwah/Ramsey area.

Disappointed, I’d give it a 5.9 as had no taste, no crisp, asked for it well done to get some crisp, top of pizza well done, bottom was lightly cooked. Just a bad bar pie!

Over rated. Average slice. Don’t understand the hype about this place. Portnoy might’ve been slipped a twenty under the counter to grade this a little high. I’m no Portnoy though, I’m better. No flop. Just average.
