Skyline Chili was my first meal when I moved to Cincinnati 30+ years ago. I was introduced to the three-way. Now living in the LowCountry of South Carolina, Skyline Chili is my FIRST STOP when visiting the area. I have graduated to the five-way! Chili like none other on this earth!! Yum!

Locals could not recommend this place enough... my conclusion is that this must certainly be an acquired taste... I found the combination and the overall plate presentation very unappealing, and the flavors and texture just do not work... even the fries are bad here... never again

Fast service, Manager came by. Food value fine. This would have to be called a "fast food" place but if you and your friends want to "linger longer" that is ok too. Not fancy but good just to meet and greet and chat.

What a great place. Good quick service and I love Cincinnati chili. Nice to have the parking. The hours make it a great after the show place.

If you go to Cincinnati you will see numerous outlets for Cincinnati chili. Skyline is the most prominent. The menu is limited and based on the Greek style chili. Chili on pasta, on hotdogs and multiple combinations there of. Everyone should try the experience and decide if they agree with the local opinion regarding this concoction. Our grandkids love it.

I travel often for my work and one of the things I miss when ever I am not at home in the Cincinnati area is Skyline. It's just the perfect quick, consistently delicious, comfort food. 3 way and 1 cheese coney with a glass of sweet tea. Love this Cincinnati favorite and always will.

Most out of towners don't get it, but there's something about a too short hotdog in a soft fresh bun with a bunch of mild, soupy chili, onions, mustard and cheese that I think is a dairy product. Not health food, but it's a taste of home for those of us that live in Cincinnati that you gotta have every... More
