In 1949, a young man from a small Greek village, Nicholas Lambrinides, opened his first restaurant overlooking the Cincinnati skyline. Since then, Skyline Chili's Coneys and Ways have been enjoyed by generations of Cincinnatians who love the delicious food and a dining experience like no other. Today, Skyline Chili is still made from Nicholas's original recipe and his secret blend of unique spices that makes it a local and regional obsession.
About Our Food
There's nothing like it. Skyline's original, secret-recipe chili is traditionally served over a hot dog in a bun and topped with cheese (a Cheese Coney) or poured over steamed spaghetti with cheese (a 3-Way). Orders at the restaurant always come with oyster crackers, which locals like to dab with hot sauce to make "cracker bombs." Skyline Chili is synonymous with Cincinnati-style chili, but you don't have to live near a Skyline restaurant to enjoy it, because you can get it shipped anywhere in the country. Feeling Good, It's Skyline Time.
