History of Skyline Chili
Elite athletes pursue dreams with enviable enthusiasm. In 1949, Nicholas Lambrinides began pursuing his dream in a similar way–by working incredibly hard to make his delicious secret recipes for appreciative customers. Since then, Skyline (named for a view from the first restaurant in Price Hill) has been delighting generations with their famous Ways, coneys and fast tableside service. Skyline Chili serves its Cincinnati-style chili in over 130 restaurants and thousands of grocery stores, making it one of the truly unique regional taste sensations in America. Like the Flying Pig Marathon, Skyline is dedicated to bringing friends and families together for an experience like no other. Skyline Chili is synonymous with Cincinnati-style chili throughout the world.
