I went to the REI store to get some gear and my backpack adjusted. As I told them I was from Florida, they said "You have to try the SKYLINE chili. World famous. " Really? O.K. it was nearby, so I stopped in on a rainy March 1st. The good news. Staff is very nice and informative. Nice atmosphere, and... More

Skyline chili is what our city is known for! A unique taste and a fun experience for families, dates, and singles. Order a basic 3-way of spaghetti, Greek style chili, and grated sharp cheese, which is how I prefer it. You can make it a 4-way by adding beans OR onions, or make it a 5-way by adding beans AND...

Whenever we get to Cincinnati we must satiate our desire for this unique style of 'chili.' We only get there about once/year so it has become a tradition to savor. The atmosphere is average: not particularly nice but not horrible, clean but noisy. There are booths, tables, or counter seating. The service is brisk, friendly, spot-on. It is ALWAYS busy,... More

Visitors don't exactly get the idea of "chili" over spaghetti, until they try it. Always satisfies. In addition to chili, a decent Greek salad, chicken wraps and Coney Island hotdogs with the signature chili mean there is almost always something of interest for the first timer and the multi-timer.

Whenever I'm in Springboro my son-in-law and I go to Skyline for the spaghetti and hot dogs. Yum. Both are delicious. Haven't tried anything else and probably won't. Food is great, service is friendly and fast, and the restaurant is clean.

I will preface this review with the fact that I grew up in Cincinnati and grew up on Skyline Chili. Skyline Chili is a Cincinnati tradition that many customers really love and keep coming back for the food. Customers who did not grow up in Cincinnati or do not enjoy the food will likely never come back. My wife is... More

We ate here since it seemed like a must do in Cincinnati. Well the food was good, but not a lot of healthy choices, so be prepared. My hubby got the coneys and they were also very small. He also ordered the chili cheese fries and they were good and there was a bunch. I agree with the other reviews... More
