I first enjoyed Cincinnati-style chili in the 90's. Skyline Castleton was just as I remembered it. The flavor of the chili is truly unique. Combined with the cheddar cheese topping, and lying on top of spaghetti, makes for an awesome meal. One of the best parts of this visit was the friendliness of the server. She was great! I look...

If you like Cincinnati style chili then this is the place to go. I eat there tonight with a friend that drove all the way down from Lansing, MI since they closed all of the skyline locations up there. Best location of all the skylines around here.

One of our favorite fast foods. Skyline Chili places are found around Cincinnati, of course, and Indianapolis + Florida from Ft. Lauderdale and up the west coast to Clearwater. This is 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 find the recipe...

Our server, Missy, was the best! We were from out of town and she gave us a rundown on the menu. I already knew I HAD to have a chili dog though! She gave us a sampler of the Three Way Spaghetti. It was delicious. As was the Greek Salad with homemade greek dressing. So far this has been the... More

Stopped into the strip mall to go to another restaurant but it was loud and crowded so we decided to go to Skyline Chili. A friend from Cincinnati had told me about this chain a few years ago. Our waitress exceptional even bringing us a sample of their way of serving chili prior to ordering. Chili is served atop spaghetti... More

Nice place in strip mall. Distinctive Cincinnati chili flavor. Hot dogs are around 4 inches long with mustard, onion, chili, and cheese. Cheese fries are good to. Staff was great.

The food and menu items are exactly the same as I remembered from frequently eating at Skyline Chili while attending college in Cincinnati. They even have the oyster crackers on the table with the hot sauce. The chili was exactly the same piled high with cheese. My go to item is always the chili cheese sandwich. Also, be sure to...

Their menu is not really my thing (chili over spaghetti, etc.) but I was looking for something fast but different. I tried the Chicken Caesar Wrap sandwich and was very happy with it. I would go back for this sandwich.

Love this style chili, it's a little chocolate that makes it special. Portions are good, price is reasonable. Only minus is the drab decor, chili this good deserves better.

Have heard for years about Cincinnati's famous Skyline chili from Ohio friends. We stopped in for a quick lunch, ordered the chili 3 ways, it was okay, but definitely far from the best chili I have ever had. My husband was of the same opinion, so it was just not me. I would probably go back to give it another... More

From a small kitchen in the village of Kastoria, Greece, a fascinated young Nicholas Lambrinides watched as his mother and grandmother prepared authentic Greek dishes. Their recipes had been passed down from generation to generation. These were unique, wonderful dishes that had the power to bring his whole family together.

Nicholas dreamed that one day he would bring these recipes and traditions to America, where he could share them with friends and family. In 1949, his dream came true when Nicholas opened his first restaurant overlooking the skyline of Cincinnati, Ohio and began serving his delicious secret recipes to appreciative customers.

Since then, Skyline Chili's Coneys, Ways and table-side service have been enjoyed by generations. Our Chili continues to be made from Nicholas's original recipe, using a secret blend of spices and only the highest quality ingredients. Skyline is dedicated to bringing friends and families together for an experience like no other and we will always be devoted to the American dream of that young man from a small village in Greece.
