Great food, generous with the cheese. I don't know why Fox news is always on though. If you haven't tried Skyline I urge you to because it's great.

This store has gotten a much needed refresh recently, but the product is good as always. Staff was sweet but somewhat a clueless. .

This was my first time eating at a Skyline Chili restaurant. The service was good (very quick!), and the food was awesome! The location was convenient seeing as how it's just a few miles off the interstate, and we were passing through Indy on the way to the Arnold Expo in Columbus, Ohio. Our whole meal cost less than $15!... More

Service was ok. Food was good. Place kind of smelled like rancid oil. Not as noticeable towards the front of the restaurant.

Maybe we'll eventually visit all the Skylines, this is the 2nd Indy one that we've tried. We were traveling from Michigan to St. Louis, so we planned an Indy stop just for Skyline. This location was *great*, just off I-465 and easier to find for us than the last time. We hit it about 2pm or so, and as the... More

I've visited this skyline a few times within the last six months. EVERYTIME I go, my family and I are the only African Americans in the place. I always feel a little uncomfortable and question am I suppose to be in here. My children love skyline and ask for it time to time. Did I miss something? Is this skyline... More

Let's do this backwards. I want to start with the negative then get to the good. This location is located in an older strip mall and the restaurant shows it's age. Normally, this wouldn't bother me as long as the place is kept clean. This location wasn't. The tables weren't bussed the whole time we were there so we were... More

I visited this Skyline twice during my recent visit to Indy. The portions were good and the service varied. The wait staff was excellent and served us well. The guy behind the counter freaked out when we said we wanted to order 24 Cheese Coney’s and 4 large 4 ways to go and 6 to eat now. We told him... More

Small portions. Gruff staff at least today and play kicking each other like kids. For true skyline food lovers go south towards greenwood store. Coney buns always fresh, staff always greets you and portions fair and consistent at south side store.

Description
From a small kitchen in the village of Kastoria, Greece, a fascinated young Nicholas Lambrinides watched as his mother and grandmother prepared authentic Greek dishes. Their recipes had been passed down from generation to generation. These were unique, wonderful dishes that had the power to bring his whole family together.

Nicholas dreamed that one day he would bring these recipes and traditions to America, where he could share them with friends and family. In 1949, his dream came true when Nicholas opened his first restaurant overlooking the skyline of Cincinnati, Ohio and began serving his delicious secret recipes to appreciative customers.

Since then, Skyline Chili's Coneys, Ways and table-side service have been enjoyed by generations. Our Chili continues to be made from Nicholas's original recipe, using a secret blend of spices and only the highest quality ingredients. Skyline is dedicated to bringing friends and families together for an experience like no other and we will always be devoted to the American dream of that young man from a small village in Greece.
