Wonderful vegan chili....our friends tell us it tastes exactly the same as the one with animal parts in it.
No cholesterol No animal parts -- just truly delicious -- give it a try !

A huge shout out to GoldStar for their delicious and creative veggie chill.
I haven't eaten animals for many years and cannot attest to how meatlike it truly is BUT we took some carnivorous friends who did a taste test and no one could tell the difference so I ask fellow cincinnatians; if you can't tell the difference... if it has zero cholesterol and no one had to die... why not give it a try??????????

Cincy is the home of a unique style of chili. Gold Star tries hard and is good but Skyline still rates tops in my book.

Disappointed that it was closed for remodeling. I did get to try them although at the convention center they did a cater out to our event. Well - it must be a regional thing, since locals rave about it.
It tended to be a thin more soupy chili in my opinion. Definitely worth a try if you have not had it before.
We did not get hot dogs, were only offered spaghetti option

Who makes the best Cincinnati Chili is a long time debate, but my vote goes to Gold Star next to Xavier University. Despite the multiple locations, this still feels like a family run business. The chili is exceptional and the service provided by Kenny was top notch. We will definitely be back to enjoy a 4 or 5-way.
