Never fails to satisfy. Even little babies love the taste. Service is fast and one can be in and out if need be. However, one is never rushed and families linger when they feel like it. Kids menu and they get to pick a treat afterwards. Most restaurants have lots of parking and a speedy drive thru. However, the real... More

Skyline is some of the best chili spaghetti to city has to offer. Food is fantastic, a unique flavor not found anywhere. Spaghetti topped with chili, onions, and cheese is a flavor you won't want to forget. Service is quick and waitresses are friendly. Drink until your heart's content refills are free.

Sorry Cincinnati, I know this is your claim to fame but I was not impressed. My daughter and I tried a few different items from the menu to be fair and we will stick with our tried and true Coney place in Indiana!

I had to try the iconic Cincinnati chili. It wasn't at all like I expected. I love the concept of chili over noodles, but I'm used to a thicker chili. Based on a locals recommendation, I had a small 3 way and a coney. The chili was rather sweet. I would try it again, but not sure it'll ever be... More

I never have to tell my kids to eat their dinner when we go to Skyline! They absolutely clean their plates! They love the coneys, 3-way and 4-ways. There are locations all over town and their excellent service and quality are consistent. Whether you are driving through town or staying a few days, add a Skyline stop to your plans.... More

I had never had this chili until this visit to Cincinnati. I have to say I like it better than the competitors and had to have it twice during our 3 day stay!

I don't generally like Chili. But this chili can be ordered with or without beans which is a plus for me. A Skyline "3-way" is chili, spaghetti and shredded cheese and is so delicious. It's kind of a fast food restaurant, but it's quick, reasonable and delicious!

Piping hot and beverage skimpy on the portion. In ohio on business and some colleagues and I dined there one day. It was so good I made sure I went back before I left ohio. Definitely a simple but yet tasty dish . Not the just ordinary bowl either. Good people that dine and work there.
