Nearly all Gold Star Chili locations have fascinating 3 - way chili. Note: This is not Italian Pasta, and we recommend

This girl was so exasperated when I asked what specifically came on an item (food allergies) that I said "thank you anyway, we just don't see what we are looking for" and she was thrilled to lose our business as she didn't have to work. As I drove past the drive through window I saw a girl with an extremely... More

Very friendly, greeted immediately with sincerity. Server (celeste) was cute as she could be and genuinely friendly. Very prompt service. The chili had a hint of cinnamon and was good. Price was reasonable and there are enough menu items to please anyone that doesn't want chili spaghetti. Recommend.

Skyline has the REAL Cincinnati chili. Gold Star's chili does not taste right. I can't stand it - BUT to be fair, they do have good service when I've went with others, and what I get when I have to go is their chili cheese dip. The cream cheese helps hide the strong chili flavor.
