Skyline Chili

Cincinnati Family Magazine's Biz 4 Families Restaurant profile for 2022 features Skyline Chili!

The Skyline Chili secret family recipe originated from Kastoria, Greece, where it was passed down from one generation of Lambrinides to the next. Shortly after the family arrived in the Mid-Western United States, the founder of Skyline Chili, Nicholas Lambrinides, opened up his first restaurant in Price Hill, Ohio. The restaurant overlooked downtown Cincinnati, which provided inspiration for the
name of his restaurant, and so began Skyline Chili. Since its opening in 1949, Skyline Chili has become a well-known part of Cincinnati’s culture.
