A local bar and restaurant offers a good food menu. The restaurant is very small and they do not accept credit cards. Due to its popularity, it gets crowded and you could experience a wait.

First let me say that my family and I have eaten here many times. We loved the place so much that we eagerly brought friends and family here from out of state. But today everything was just off. Starting with the crew of rude waitresses who ignored my family for at least 15 minutes while at least four waitresses were less than four feet away who would not look our way. We overheard their conversation how the chef left due to an argument with the owner. If true, it reflected on the quality of the food from the texture of the dough/bread to the flavor of the food. We were so disappointed. We are unsure if we will ever return here.

We're so disappointed we let you down on your last visit. It sounds like our team was having an off day when you stopped by, and we truly apologize for that. We expect our guests to receive friendly, attentive care and a delicious Italian dish, and we're sorry that wasn't the case when you last visited. We're confident we can provide you with the dining experience you know us to have, and we hope you give us another shot soon!

All the best,
The Kinchley's Kares Team

The pizza is OK . . . Speaking with many people about this place I expect WAY WAY better pizza than what was produced . . . . . . it was just ok, should it be a placed PACKED (with a waiting list) at 10pm on a Friday night ABSOLUTLEY NOT but somehow it was . . . . service was "ok" AT BEST . . . . . Would I go back "maybe", would I rush back or can't wait to go back . . . .NO WAY . . . . The crust killed it for me but hey I am only one person.

It seems that our pizza just wasn't your style, which we understand. We're known for thin crust pizza, so that might have came as a surprise when you ordered from us. Maybe you'd like something different like our pasta, so we'd love to invite you back and see what you think of it.

All the best,

We have been going to Kinchley's for years. It's not fancy. It's busy as hell (the place is a gold mine). However, it's consistent and hits the spot. Their pizza has a really thin crust - different from most places in our area. It's my husband's favorite pizza spot in our neck of the woods. Their other dishes are fairly standard, but they hit the spot if you are looking for reliable Italian food. (Even the salads are big, fresh and great!)

I definitely recommend giving Kinchley's a try. Be prepared for a wait, especially on a weekend night. When I say this place is a busy gold mine, I'm not kidding you!

I have tried their pizza and other dishes back a while and was not a happy camper.

The pizza was small and the crust of the pizza was like cardboard. Not my average pizza. Plus when they are busy you wait forever to get served. I was there last St Patrick's Day to meet a good friend for lunch. most of the other restaurants in the area were pack. I figured that this place would not be packed. But is was an they did not have sufficient staff to handle the extra business.

We're a bit disappointed you didn't enjoy our pizza, William. We're known for thin crust pizza, so it seems that just isn't your style. We appreciate you stopping by during St. Patrick's Day -- if you decide to come back, we hope you'll have better luck next time!
