This is a restaurant tradition in Cincinnati. They make a chili that is different than traditional chili's. They make everything fresh in front of you and you can sit at the kitchen bar like old times, neat for the kids. They don't just have Coney's which is a chili cheese hotdog for those who don't know, and they have my... More

If you live in Cincinnati, this is the chili you go back for again and again. Definitely a local favorite! Restaurants are family friendly, clean and service is always friendly and quick! Skyline also has a drive through service, which is always busy. You can get a 3 way ( chili, spaghetti, cheese), a 4way (chili, spaghetti, cheese, onion or... More

Eating here all my life. First place former Cincinnatians go when they get back. Very consistent over the many years All the sport teams love it and on TV during the games it is displayed. The best of all the Cincinnati Greek style chilies.

We have 4 grand kids and they always request Skyline. We found one in Louisville this summer. Yea!!!!! There is something for everyone, even vegetarians. The waiters and waitresses are nice and quick. We can be in an out in twenty minutes or we can sit there and munch on oyster crackers for an hour.

Skyline is the best chilli in town, but service at all Skylines is not equal. The given is that the quality of food in all the restaurants locally is consistent, the service at some just is not very good. The West Chester, OH location has great servers. Most of the people at this branch have been with Skyline for a... More

I love Cincinnati Style Chili and this is one of three that I consider the best. Gold Star and Blue Ash Chili being the other two.

Made fresh while you wait, and you can even see them make your food! I asked my waitress what type of fillers where used in the franks, she replied "frank doesn't use fillers". No one was able to answer my question about the franks!

Folks, if you visit Cincinnati make sure you have a lunch or dinner at Skyline Chili. I went to the one on 4th & Sycamore and it was truly a great experience. My waitress, Angie, was fantastic. I ordered the Coney bowl and wasn't disappointed. Angie pffered to tie a bib around my neck so that I wouldn't get chili... More
