Skyline Chili






In 1949, a young man from a small Greek village, Nicholas Lambrinides, opened his first restaurant overlooking the skyline of Cincinnati. Since then, Skyline Chili’s Coneys and Ways have been enjoyed by generations. Skyline Chili continues to be made from Nicholas’s original recipe and a secret blend of spices, and it continues to bring family and friends together for an experience like no other.

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!
