Kinchley's Tavern, NJ
« on: November 21, 2019, 09:22:54 PM »
Tried Kinchley's Tavern in Ramsey, NJ. It's about a 20 minute drive from PizzaTown USA.

Open since 1937 it's a nice old tavern. It seemed similar to Star Tavern in that it a lot of customers knew each other. A line was already formed at 5:45 on a Wednesday evening.  Service is very friendly and good.

Full Italian menu in addition to the pizza. The meatballs were very good. I ordered the sausage(sliced) with onions, green peppers and mushrooms. The amount of almost raw onion, peppers and mushrooms would have been enough for about five of my pies. Too much for me but the underlying super thin crust, sauce and sausage were really good. Now that I have seen how heavy they top the pie, next time I'll order either cheese only or add one just meat topping.

Certainly worth a visit for any pizza lover! I hope to get back again soon. Now to try to duplicate it at home...

Despite being screen and conveyor oven baked, I enjoyed the pie here!

Looking at the Yelp photos of their pizzas, itís hard to pin down what style it is.  It certainly stands apart from most conveyor McPizza.

Not really. Itís well known they were the creators of the Jersey bar pie

I lived until I was 11 in Upper Saddle River, NJ, right next door to Ramsey.  I remember going with my friend and his dad to Kinchley's a few times for pizza many, many, many years ago.   I loved it.  There was a place called Phil's Pizzeria, also still open, in Montvale, one town over in the other direction, that basically set my pizza thermostat for life.  Great NY/NJ style pizza.  Phil's and Kinchley's were very different, but both were great.   Bergen county was really a magical place to grow up.  I went back to Phil's a few years ago, and, sadly,  only the name was the same.  It looks like Kinchley's has done a much better job of keeping the spirit alive.

There's a ton of excellent pizza in NJ. Neighborhood joints that don't make the big lists!
