Excellent dogs and 3 way chili, great staff

I took my 2 boys here while visiting sites around Cincinnati. The restaurant was very clean and we were greeted by the staff as we walked in, who made us all feel very welcome. Donnie was our server, who was outstanding. He explained the menu, kept a close watch on our table, made sure the food... read more

This was the second time I tried the "famous Skyline chili" and it was just as disappointing as the first. Greasy, cinnamon sweet flavored thin consistency soup. I have no idea why this is so popular.

Since it's a kind of Greater Cincinnati area specialty, I tried it after my tennis match and without having got my lunch....So I was hungry... Just one Cheese Coney... The taste of the chili is not bad...but that cheddar in for me completely obscure.... Maybe it's just to colorize little more!

I've always loved skyline but since traveling up here more often I've noticed gold star.....I've asked but ppl don't share my taste buds so I'm eating both this week. I'm probably going back to my first love Skyline.

Love Cincinnati chili, but never had a chance to go to where it all started. Brother-in-law moved there and we visited. Truly, the best place for this chili I've ever been to. Plus, the staff was well into the "mood" and everything in the restaurant spoke of its great food history. I had mine "4-way", in the parlance of chile.... More

This was our first trip to a SkyLine and we enjoyed the "famous chili". Being from the south, we aren't used to the chili they served. However, it was very good. The best part was how clean the restaurant was. From the time we entered until we left someone was cleaning something somewhere in the store. if you're looking for... More

Not sure why the locals say you have to eat here... the chili is more like macaroni covered in a light meat sauce and it's expensive for noodles. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

This isn't Texas chili. Coming from Texas I've never had chili severed over a bed of spaghetti with a pile of cheddar cheese on top. The chili had an interesting taste, a bit of cinnamon. It was a fun and interesting experience. The staff was great. They gave us bibs so the spaghetti didn't splatter on us and even took... More
