Had a few hours to spare before a concert at US Bank Arena. Skyline is my favorite restaurant. Came across this location by accident while walking in downtown area. Took kids there, was greeted immediately, was served quickly, and the food of course, was excellent. Oyster crackers are always welcome. 3-way chili/spaghetti - perfect. Hit the spot. Waitress seemed genuinely... More

Out of towners still question, "chili, spaghetti,cheese and onion all together?" That makes them a visit, until they taste this local delight. Suddenly, they ask if they can buy it in stores. Just great!

Skyline Chili gets an average, mainly because they are everywhere and an iconic brand. Yes, it's good, it's our go-to because there is a location close to our home. I feel there are better chili diners in Cincinnati, so please check my other Cincinnati Style Chili Tour reviews. I like Skyline, and I should give it a 4 star, but... More

I highly recommend this place. My co-workers and I frequently go here for lunch as you can get in and out quickly even though they are always busy. The food is always consistently delicious.

Everyone has their favorite chili place in Cincinnati. Skyline is my favorite. The food is consistent, and the flavor of the chili is outstanding. I love to bring out of towners here on their first visit to Cincinnati to try Skyline. Very few have not loved it. I love getting the 3 Way with light spagetti, extra juicy. It is... More

We were told that we had to try the skyline chilli and Coney dogs while in Cincinnati. We found the Skyline Chilli Restaurant within walking distance from our hotel. Our waitress could tell we were new to the experience and she took the menu and explained the different ways to get the chilli...on spaghetti, coneys, burritos, etc. She even brought... More

On the day that we were here it was very crowded. But we were greeted and seated quickly. Our order was taken and served correctly. The waitress and the cashier were both friendly. Having worked downtown for many years I have eaten here numerous times. Have never had a bad experience.

Ordered carry out to take home to Chicago. A pint of just the chili was very expensive. The quality was below average.......very watery and little meat.
