Coming through Cincinnati, it was supper time, I was hungry, and had a huge number of restaurant choices. I hadn't had Skyline, or any "Cincinnati-style" chili in a long time. I craved it. I stopped here and had a Five-Way. That is: spaghetti, chili con carne, beans, onions, all topped with graded Wisconsin cheddar cheese, mounded up over top so... More

If you have never tried this chili, you must. We have it everytime we are in Cincinnati. The cheese is good and piled high. The hot dogs are small, but they have 2 on each bun. Don't forget the onions, they make it that much better!

Got a cheese coney here..well maybe two LOL!! You can't just eat one! My favorite coney spot every time I'm in the Cincinnati area. They have my favorite style of chili! You can't go wrong here.

Everyone who visits Cincinnati must try Skyline Chili! I remember the first time I tried it I didn't think it was that great (had a coney). But I ended up giving it another shot and getting hooked. That second time I had a 5-way and covered it in their branded hot sauce. It was delicious.....the perfect comfort food. They have... More

In town on business and haven't had Skyline chili in ages. Hands down its still the best out there. Got a Coney with cheese, onions and mustard and a 3-Way. Outstanding, there's nothing else like it. If you haven't tried it its worth the experience.

Relaxed atmosphere. They used chili instead of tomato sauce. LOTS of cheddar cheese on top. Takes getting used to if you are used to tomato sauced based. Worth a try, then you can decide if you want to come back or not
