I love Gold Star and this location is no exception. They have a roomy interior and have regularly provided us with courteous and quick service. Chili, coneys and sandwiches - you can't ask for anymore. Location is convenient tucked near the Kroger's in Belleview right near Newport and just off of I-471.

We needed a light meal after a Cincinnati Reds game. We found this restaurant close to our hotel. It was a bit confusing when we walked in as we were not sure if you order at the counter or seat yourself and staff did not notice we were there to direct us. We finally asked if we seat our self...

I visited this restaurant for the first time with family. I had the chili spaghetti with cheese which was good and quite tasty. Nothing mind-blowing, but worth the money, and I was definitely happy with my meal. Service was fast and friendly. I would recommend this restaurant if you're in the mood for chili!

Excellent service provides the foundation for this tightly-run establishment. Couple that with a consistent commitment to quality and you get exactly what you came for each time. The chili is always delicious and for as many times as I've eaten there, I've never had a bad experience. They do it so well, it's hard to find opportunities for these guys... More

Chili is always good, prefer it over skyline..tastes spicier...owner can be kinda a jerk to employees but is very good to local community. Seems like high turnover in staff but always helpful..go there often.

If you are ever in Northern Kentucky or Greater Cincinnati, you have to try Gold Star Chili. There are many chili parlors around but this one is simply the best. The food is always fresh and tasty, unlike others with the same name. Very clean and convenient location. This is NOT your Texas type chili. Traditional "greek style" chili served... More

Gold star is the leader and the legend.....entirely different from skyline chili At gold star the chili has an ever so soft bite to it that makes you want to eat until you burst.....their 3-way and cheese coney's are reasonably priced and taste sensational

Was told if you travel to Cincinnati you should try Skyline Chili and Gold Star Chili. Both are very different than we were used to. Has a cinnamon taste and beans are by request. Eaten with spaghetti and cheese. It was OK but as I said very different than the chili we are used to in Missouri.
