Excellent place to try Cincinnati Chili. Good value for money and the staff were very friendly and welcoming to us; 3 of our group were first-time visitors and they brought samples of the food and gave us little souvenir bags to take with us when we were leaving. The menu is simple but provides ample choice. A must-have experience in... More

Being a Texan, this stuff doesn't really seem chili, but, whatever you call it, it is awesome. Good blend of flavors, satisfying!

If you are looking for some good Cincinnati Chili then this is a great place to enjoy stop before the game. This is not fine dinning, it is fast, cheap and good in a manly sort of way.

I love Skyline Chili. I have to have my Skyline fix at least once a week. I usually get the 3-way with cheese on the side. The staff is always friendly and professional. Always recommend Skyline to friends from out of town. Love it!!

I'm not going to wade into the battle between Gold Star and Skyline partisans other than to say I like both and prefer Skyline. What I will say is that unbelievably, Skyline offers healthy choices with very little tweaking. The greek salad with grilled chicken, for example. This fall, a greekasta woth grilled chicken appeared and the old reliable black... More

If you like extremely small boiled hot dogs smothered in a sweet chili sauce, you'll like Skyline. I'm not crazy about it but Cincinnati folks rave about Skyline Coney Dogs! Under all that sauce & cheese is a skinny small boiled hot dog. Nothing special IMO

Skyline is part of Cinti tradition. One of our favorites!! Can go wrong with that hit chili and a lot of cheese and onions. Fast service us another perk if Skyline. Even if they are packed you won't wait long for a taste of the best Cinti chili!!

Quick, friendly service in a busy, fun place. We went for lunch and watched about a million people come through to sit or take away in the 40 minutes we were there. Still, the servers never miss a beat and make sure everything is right. They even tie your bibs on for you :). Nice solid diner-style junk food and... More
