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

I really like this place. Service is great. Love the guacamole salsa and fish tacos. I would recommend this place to anyone who likes Mexican food.

How can you go to Cincinnati and NOT eat at Skyline? You have to try it, right? I did! I loved it! First, you'll be blown away by the service. The waitress brought us each a little sample since it was our first time. Then, you'll be blown away by the prices. So cheap!! It is a different tasting chili,... More

There is a great debate between skyline and gold star you decide. I like them both. I had the veggie burrito and my wife had the hot dogs with chili and all the fixins. It is always good and always fresh and always consistently formulary. Service is friendly and attentive and helpful.

There are lots Of "Cincinnati Chili" restaurants in town but none as good as Skyline. Their chili has a richer flavor and the cheese can't be beat. Whenever your feeling go and hungry it's Skyline time.

You're not going to find this kind of chili in Texas, just in the Cincinnati area. It's a different way to eat chili. If you haven't tried it, you owe yourself to. Some say it's an acquired taste, but still worth it.

Whenever we are in Cincy we have to stop at a Skyline Chili. The chili dogs are so tasty! Mustard on your dog is a must. So delish that I ate 3!

We tried this for the first time outside of King's Island and it was disgusting. The chili was lukewarm and the hotdogs were nasty tasting. My daughter got a hot do kids meal which had 2 hotdogs in 1 bun and that was all she got. It was a waste of money and stomachs for the day.

When I moved to Cincinnati, I was told that Chili here (which is a big deal) is not what I was used to being from Louisiana and living in Alabama. Yes, Cincinnati chili has cinnamon in it and its a Greek tradition. If you go into it knowing its not Texas Chili or your hometown chili, you may like it.... More
