Cincinnati chili - you either love it or hate it. Probably not what you're expecting if you're not familiar. I acquired the taste when attending UC & love it. Stop here whenever we're passing by Lima. Always quick service and reasonable price. Always ask if you need refills, even a drink to take with you.

First visit. Parking lot and restaurant pretty full, so thought must be really good. My wife and I each had 2 chili dogs. Very disappointing. Child was watery and flavorless, and heaping mound of "angel hair" type shredded cheese was bland. Sat like a lump in our stomachs for several hours. Other customers seemed happy, so maybe it was just... More

We stopped in here for lunch while doing some holiday shopping on Dec. 23, the parking lot was fairly full, but we could see plenty of space to sit and eat. Our waitress was quick to address us, and take our beverage order, and when we decided on what we wanted to order, she took our order, and our food... More

Probably our favorite fast food. Unfortunately, Skyline Chili places are somewhat limited to around Cincinnati and over into Indiana + Florida from Ft. Lauderdale and up the west coast to Clearwater. This is actually the original Cincinnati chili, which is totally unique. It's a thin meaty sauce with Worcestershire sauce, cumin, cinnamon, vinegar, and a couple other things (you can... More

This is definitely a different kind of chili, sweet Mediterranean taste. The fries were Good and the sweet tea was very good

I love the 5 Way Chili (actually spaghetti with meat sauce) and the Chili/Cheese dogs. Prices are reasonable, food is hot, service is fast.

We actually visit Skyline pretty frequently! The staff there is exceptional. They are quick, courteous, and always friendly. Your food comes out super quick! We also enjoy the kids night/craft. Everything on the menu is great. Pass the hot sauce!

Skyline Chili was first recommended to us a few years ago in Cincinnati. When we checked it out the mound of cheese and the underlying spaghetti blew us away. We were expecting a bowl of chili and had no idea of what a 3-way was (pause). Three years later we were curious as to how much of our previous enthusiasm... More

Good food and quick. Been here many times when I get to the side of Lima. I usually ask for extra sauce on my Five Way. Much nicer since they put in new seating and remodeled the restrooms. I have rarely been disappointed to here.

I enjoyed the 5 way... Cincinnati Chili is always delicious and they are generous with the cheese. Oyster crackers tide you over until your meal arrives.
