Steakhouse
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. We are also BYOB :)

The food was great! We had the tomato bisque, chicken pastina soups. The steak raviolis were delicious. The crab cakes were full of crab and not loaded with filler. The porterhouse was good but I do wish it was a little larger. All in all it was a great visit!

My boyfriend and I went here on a date. The service and food was excellent. The owner , Mrs.Krunkle came to our table a few times to talk to us and make sure we were doing okay. She was very sweet, funny and personable. She even came outside when we left to say goodbye to us. She made our experience that much better. Cannot wait to go back!

The food was outstanding...everything was delicious! The crab and pasta in marinara was loaded with crab meat and the pasta was handmade. The service was great, our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. The courses were appropriately spaced out and our group enjoyed the time between courses! A definite we will be back to this gem!

This place is truly a gem. My ribeye was cooked perfect for medium rare and was full of flavor. The fireplace gave it a very intimate feel although we were spaced appropriately for social distancing. Server, busboy, and manager all showed outstanding customer service. Being a BYOB restaurant was the icing on the cake. Will definitely be returning.

Despite reduced capacity seating, the ambience was welcoming and comfortable. The meal was great. The housemade blue cheese dressing was great. The thai calamari was flavorful. The ribeye steak was tender and paired well with the smoked gouda and onion sauce! Definitely going back!

Restaurant was very good...svc was excellent and everyone was very attentive...would say it was perfect but I've eaten at some of the finest restaurants in the world so my opinion is skewed...but for the Jersey Philadelphia area it is near the top

First time out after having a newborn and it was wonderful!! The hostess which I’m guessing might have been the owner was soooo sweet and kept checking on us to make sure we were having a great time. We will totally be back.

The wait staff was excellent, the food was good, if not a bit overpriced. Desserts were awesome!

The manager or owner (I’m not sure which), however well-intentioned, seemed to hover, and came over to our table a few times, sometimes just a minute or two after the waitress stepped away, to ask the same question that the waitress had just asked. It was a little annoying, and I hope in the future they’ll relax a little and trust their waitstaff to take good care of their guests (which they were!)

We made reservation through OpenTable & were seated as soon as we got there. Socially distanced and masks were all in place. My husband had the ribeye steak and said it was cooked perfect & delicious! I had the dijon crusted pork loin, tender pork medallions encrusted with a Dijon & panko, sauteed with apples and craisins in a brandy cream sauce, served over mashed potatoes. It was wonderful. The craisins added just a hint of sweetness to the sauce, I enjoyed every bite! We were too full to get dessert but they had wonderful options. Hopefully next time we can order dessert, we will definately be back again!

This was our first time dining here. Unfortunately they were out of the Braised Beef Bordelaise so I had to "settle" for the Filet Mignon au poivre. My wife had the plain Filet. Both steaks were cooked perfect and were tender as could be. Will definitely return.

We went on Friday night for a friend’s birthday. Everything was amazing. Some people in our party ended up being a bit late, but we never felt rushed. Both the food and service were incredible. Highly recommend!
