we are from Missouri and we were told we just HAD TO visit this place. Sure enough, it was really good, very good prices and we even bought chili in a can!

Chili is brown and runny with very finely ground beed. Not what I would consider a typical chili. Not enough tomato flavor. But everyone who actually grew up in Cincinnati seems to love it. Service is positively fantastic though!

I was told when I moved to Cincinnati that the first thing you have to try is the chili because people either love it or hate it. I was one of the ones that loved it. Now, when they tell you to try chili, you are probably thinking of a bowl of chili. Nope. It is basically spaghetti noodles covered... More

Skyline chili is unique to the city of Cincinnati. Famous for they're cheese coneys and 3, 4, and 5-ways depending on what you want with your spaghetti. A 3-way is just chili, cheese and spaghetti. A 4-way just adds onions and a 5-way adds beans. They have other items such as burritos, wraps and salads.

It has been more than 30 years when I went back to Skyline Chili this weekend.. It is a unique recipe that I have seen no where else in the world. Of course, I had the Chili 5 ways and it was a good as I remembered it from years ago. It is not fancy cooking but 5 of us... More

Everyone raves about Chili, so figured I'd give it a try. The chili just wasn't good at all. Looked more like slop than chili. And what's up with putting it over spaghetti? Just wasn't my taste, at all.

One of our favorite places to eat, especially on a cold winter day. The service at all the Skylines we have visited is excellent and the food is always great, hot, and consistent from all locations. We bring all our out of town visitors to Skyline to experience the unique Cincinnati menu. Most think it is great, although some need... More

Another "go to" place in Cincinnati (if you want to eat like you live here) is Skyline Chili. The quality is the same where ever you go..but the quantities vary. My favorites is the one near University of Cincinnati and the one in OLD Milford. You will either Hate it or like most people you will love it and possibly... More
