Introduction

Established in 1949, Skyline’s chili is so integral to the character of Cincinnati that Carmen Electra, Sarah Jessica Parker, Nick Lachey, and the hundreds of thousands of everyday fans (who consume more than two million pounds of Cincinnati chili per year) consider “Skyline” and “chili” one and the same.

Food
About The Food

Not the kind of chili you serve in a bowl and eat with a spoon, Skyline, or Cincinnati-style, chili is a unique regional style characterized by finely ground beef, unexpected ingredients such as chocolate, cloves, and cinnamon, and a sauce-like consistency. Unlike other types of chili, it is not made with beans and is most commonly served “3-way”—over spaghetti and topped with an obscenely generous mound of shredded cheddar, or over a “coney” hot dog with onions and shredded cheddar.

Lambert
Meet The Owner

Skyline Chili founder Nicholas Lambrinides opened the first Skyline Chili in 1949 with his sons after dreaming for many years of sharing the recipes he learned from his family while growing up in the small village of Kastoria, Greece. While the business has changed hands a number of times, it continues to use Nicholas’s original and wholly addictive chili recipe.
