Recently took a trip to the Cincinnati/Covington area and was told we had to try a Cincinnati chili dog before leaving town. I'm from Iowa so this type of chili dog is not was I'm used to...i prefer an all beef dog with loads of chili piled on top this just didn't live up to my Iowa tastes.

We went here after church for lunch. The style of chili is not my cup of tea. It was darker in color and I didn't taste any tomatoes/tomato sauce. It's very different from the style of chili I am used to. Corn dog was smaller than what I expected. There was a generous amount of cheese on top. The chocolate... More

We are from out of town and have eaten here twice. The history of this little place is interesting; we actually saw the nice gentleman who started it on our first visit and chatted with him briefly. They have delicious Cincinnati-style chili (though I think they have a pretty broad menu). Can't remember what the holiday was once when we... More

Gold Star is good but it's no Skyline. Yes it's decent chilli and it's nice if you need a quick bite to eat but I prefer Skyline. Always get a 5 way chilli!

My wife and I love Cincinnati chili, so we had to get some on our road trip and where better to get Cincinnati chili than in Cincinnati Ohio! Anyway on to the important part... After having both, I can say with certainty that Skyline is better! Sorry Gold Star...

We dined at a couple of different Gold Star locations while in Cincinnati recently. We noted that the restaurants were spotless, the service was exceptional with friendly and accommodating servers, and the food was exacty the same (delicious) as it has been every tim we've visited these particular locations.

This is the worst Cincinnati Style chili available. They have a fan base bu I can't taste why. Skyline is much better.

Cincinnati Chili is AWESOME! Goldstar does it right! Not too runny! Cheese coneys & a 3-way! Perfection!

I eat here whenever I'm in Cincinnati. I like the cinnamon spiced chili ordered 'dry' ie drained so there isn't liquid in the bottom of your 3-way, which is chili, spaghetti, and cheese. The 4-way is with beans or onions, and 5-way is with both. The coneys and chili salads are yummy too.
