Cincinnati Staple

The food is definitely not good for you, but it tastes great. Cheese coneys and 3 ways are a staple of any Cincinnatian's diet. Don't let the word "chili" fool you. It is not the chunky type that you would expect in Texas. It is great on the spaghetti or the hot dogs. Don't forget the hot sauce!

Mason's Skyline is fantastic. What am I saying---Skyline Chili is just fantastic in general. Would recommend to anyone! Must have in Cincinnati even if it is a chain!

If you visit Cincy and don't try Skyline, you just missed an awesome taste experience. The first time I ate the chili in the 70s, I thought it was a bit spicy, but soon learned to LOVE it, especially the chili spaghetti with beans. YUM!

When in town, I go out of my way to go to this particular store. Every time I have been there I have been greeted by a friendly and attentive staff. If you're looking for great service, a good value and REAL Cincinnati Chili, you definitely want to go to Skyline (and not Gold Star).

Having eaten Skyline chili for much of my life, I couldn't wait to have it again as I drove through Mason, Ohio. It was just as delicious as I remembered. The recipe hasn't changed in all these years and is always consistent. I had just a couple of regular coneys, which were delicious, especially with the chili smell permeating the... More

Cincinnati chili comes many ways but no matter how it's not your Texas variety. This chili comes from Greek family recipes with a touch of cinnamon and chocolate. It tastes great piled on dogs or spaghetti with finely grated cheddar cheese and onions. I know it's an acquired taste but once developed you have to get your fix when ever... More

Previous Cincinnati resident LOVES being able to walk into a Skyline and have some awesome coneys. I have to make them myself in Seattle and (let me tell you) it isn't easy. These guys do them up quickly and right! I had three cheese coneys with onion, my daughter had the kids cheese n dogs and my friend had the... More

Skyline chili it a great family fun place, but if you are not from the area it takes some time getting used to the unique flavors of the chili and kinds of ways they make things but they are all good and very flavorful very fun place to take your kids!

Different Chilli than I am used to but very good. It is served a number of different ways and has almost a sweet taste to it. Seemed to be a very popular place in the this area and I can see why. Meal was very affordable as well, a nice fast meal.
