Driving down from Detroit to Orlando isn't a bad journey, especially if you remember that you cannot go through Cincinnati without stopping for Chili. Don't ask me why but Cincinnati is the home to some of the biggest Chili manufacturing companies in the US. It is sometimes known as "Chilitown USA" and it has more chili restaurants per capita than... More

A Cincinnati staple--this seems like such simple food but it is so outstanding! A great fast-food location with many options!

Was introduced to the Cincinnati tradition that is Skyline. Worth a visit to try but not what I expected, had the fiveway, chilli, pasta, cheese, onions and beans. Was tasty but a strange combination.

When in Cincinnati you have to try it. To me Skyline chili must be an acquired taste. I had the Coney with cheese. Fortunately the dogs are small and that was enough for me. For those from Cincinnati, you may love it, but once is enough for me.

My husband worked at Skyline years ago when we were dating and he said it is one of the cleanest restaurant's he has ever worked/been in. The food is always consistent and very tasty. They have a good variety such as... More

I was told if you come to Cincinnati you have to have the chili. I came across this place in Trip Advisor and it was close to my hotel. The service was good and fast as this place is all about the chili, lots of ways. On hotdogs, spaghetti, potatoes you name it. I had the loaded chili bowl, light... More
