The Kunkel family was introduced to the restaurant business in 1979, when Carol & John purchased a well established luncheonette located on Kings Highway in Audubon, called Del"s Luncheonette. The family lived above the business and our children were exposed to the restaurant business at a very early age. Family has always been one of the key ingredients to our success in every restaurant that we have owned or have operated since then.
The feel of family is evident throughout Kunkel's, from the moment you walk in the door and are greeted by Carol, all the way to the kitchen where son Justin is preparing some of our great meals. You feel at home in our cozy dining room featuring two fireplaces and mahogany and painted woodwork throughout, which was designed and built by John. You will also find daughter's Rachel and Tereze occasionally serving our guests, as well as son-n-law Jim overindulging on pasta on Tuesday nights.

We love to take our friends to Kunkel's. The food is excellent and it is always easy to hear each other. It is our local favorite.

I didn't know it was a BYOB. Must have missed this in the reviews. But luckily, we were coming from a wine tasting event and bought bottles of wine - great timing! Food was good service was excellent

This is the second time that we've gone to Kunkel's and the food was excellent as always. I had the crab cakes and my husband had the lobster butter baked flounder that had crab and shrimp!!! Telling everyone to go there!!!!

This is a great steakhouse to which you can bring your own
wines!!! I can't think of any others where you can; plus they know how to cook a steak.
Mine always comes out perfectly done to my specifications - kudos to the chef! Also, if you don't like steak, they have numerous other options like seafood, chicken, italian to tempt you. The service is usually pretty good - some of the young kids need some training; but they are always pleasant. It's the kind of place where you can bring your grandmother or your date and they will both be impressed.

Food was fabulous! Liked that they gave you time between courses, did not feel rushed at all especially considering we were the for Mother's Day. Service was great as well. Would highly recommend giving this place a try. A bit pricey....but worth every cent!!!

Great food and service. Very accommodating when a member of our party was running late. Good atmosphere. Love that it's a byo as well.

Almost great. We had 10 in our party. Our server, was extremely pleasant and accommodating. Those of us who had steak or short ribs raved about the meal. On the other hand, those that had fish were less than pleased. For apps we all shared Thai calamari and bruschetta, both of which were great. So, for the food, overall we'd rate it 7.5/10. It took forever to get our meal. I recall reading the same comment from other dinners so I'm thinking the kitchen must be small or understaffed because I don't think it was our server. I will go back, but not in a rush.

This was not our first time at Kunkel's. It is on the upscale side, but our very informed and attentive server made it a wonderful night. I'm not sure why I did not leave this review earlier. However, while the passage of has me confused as to exactly which of their delicious dishes we each had, the food there is always wonderful. This time was no exception.

Had a wonderful dinner, but was unhappy that their website showed a Tuesday special that was no longer available. Felt like it was false advertising.

Next time, I will call and verify what we read on the website.
