This was one of the better chili restaurants that I have visited. It seemed to have a lot of take-out traffic. But the tables were clean and the service was excellent. The staff greeted me as I came in and then determined that I was to dine-in so quickly showed me to a table away from the very busy pickup... More

This fast food establishment rates fairly high on Trip Advisor. There was plenty of room and seating, and the bathrooms were clean. The prices were reasonable. However, the chili was not what we expected. We were surprised to discover that the secret ingredient was cinnamon.

In town for a football game. After reading the reviews, made it a point to try this chili. Maybe you have to be local to appreciate it. I can't believe this stuff is so popular. Just tasted like a mouthful of cinnamon

We love Skyline!! We haven't been to all of them but those we visit regularly in the Anderson, Eastgate and Milford areas are terrific. I usually get the three way, but cheese coneys (mustard, no onion) are also fantastic. Skyline is THE premier Cincinnati Chile place - no reason to eat at the other place!!

My visit was good and the staff was friendly and open to discussing their menu. The chili dog was good and the price was reasonable.

A Cincinnati must try. The cheesy coneys were great. It is not your normal chili so go prepared to have something different. I wish I would have tried the triple decker but there is always next time.

Food was great. I had the 3 way extreme. It was really good. I ordered a regular and it fed me for 3 more meals. Very large portions. Quick in and out service too!
