Who Has the Best Pizza in Bergen County?

According to NJ.com celebrity food critic Peter Genovese, Kinchley’s selection has a lot to do with its famous thin crust pizza which Genovese describes as “a saucy, crunchy marvel.”

Never Been to Kinchley’s?
Going on its 81st year, Kinchley’s Tavern offers a rustic, family-friendly setting. There’s a full menu and a very busy bar featuring 10 taps flowing with a rotating selection of seasonal and regional brews. The restaurant is open daily for lunch, dinner and take out. Kinchley’s is located less than five minutes from Route 17 at 586 Franklin Turnpike, Ramsey, New Jersey. It’s hard to miss because there’s a rather large horse on the roof. It’s not a real horse folks.
