True Cincinnati chili! Service is fast and friendly, food is always good, and we leave happy :-). We usually visit the Loveland location but have never been disappointed in any of the Skyline restaurants..

Everyone who visits Cincinnati should try Skyline Chili. There's nothing like it and many native Cincinnatians love it. My husband and I always get a "three way" - spaghetti covered with chili and topped with shredded cheese. Our sons always get coneys. There are many Skyline restaurants around the city and the food is consistently good at all of them.

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
