I usually am reasonably pleased with Skyline Chili although I think they charge a lot for some noodles, rice a touch of ground beef and cheese. This particular location did not have my go-to Skyline dish, black beans and rice chilito. So I settled for a three-way... Pretty greasy and the cheese just globbed up.

Been in this line for 30mins!!! Never in life have I waited so long for food that's already done n ready. 4 cars left n it's still 8 in line. My favorite spot until now.. They're really takin advantage of this outbreak and it's sad... Winton road it will be from now on

Service is usually good, but today the chili and onions were off a bit. Maybe old onions?

Tried to go for dinner. Dinning room closed at 5:00pm. This was my go-to Gold Star. I'll NEVER be back. I guess I'll do Skyline from now on.

They forgot to give me half of my order when I went through the drive thru. They then blamed it on me saying “I drove away before they could give it to me.” Yeah...right. She said thanks and have a good night at the window and waved. I understand mistakes happen so that's not my gripe. Don't lie and try to blame your mistake on your customer. Would've been cool if they offered to make a fresh one after I had to drive all the way back.

I recently went to my local gold star chili restaurant and ordered their new vegetarian chili. I had chili cheese fries. I thought me being vegetarian ment missing out on the delicious taste of gold star chili but with this new vegetarian option I plan to make a visit at least once a month. If you're from Cincinnati or not I recommend going to gold star chili for the best chili Cincinnati has to offer.

Despite the metered street parking this was a great stop on a busy day. I actually found a spot to park on a side street. The friendly employees greeted me upon entering. I was surprised to hear that all their burgers were part of the Cincinnati Burger Week but all I wanted was the chili burger. It took maybe 5 minutes to get my burger to go after I paid a mere $5.00. I was really shocked to be told that it came with fries & a drink. Expecting a small order of fries I was thrilled to see that I got large bag of appropriately crispy and golden brown fries. My drink was a medium size. I got unsweetened tea. The burger was covered with chili, onions & melted cheese. The mustard condiment gave it a wonderful flavor! This delicious meal filled me up for the rest of the day. Until next time be kind to each other. #goldstarchili # cincinnatiburgerweek #yelpcincy #hamburgers

The lady making my food wipe her nose on the back of her hand and then grab my noodles for my 3-way with the same hand when I complained about this they asked me to leave.

Review №43

Dima is absolutely amazing. Actually the entire staff is. This is without hesitation the absolute best location I have ever eaten at in the tristate area. Food quality is always on point along with the service. They are kind, patient and attentive to all customer needs. They take customer service to a new level and prioritize is at the top every day. Gold star seriously needs to recognize this branch because I've ate at many of them and as I said this one is the absolute number one location in my book. Thank you Dima for being so wonderful and creating such a welcoming environment. To all of you. I hope you recieve the best life has to offer.

This is a very quiet Goldstar, I've never seen it very busy but it's always immaculately clean and the food comes fast from the pleasant staff. Come here if you'd like to have conversation when you dine.

Service is bad, food cost is ridiculously expensive for the quality and quantities you actually receive.Edit: actually I am going to add another star just for you caring enough to reach out to your dissatisfied customers review. Most companies don't care. Thank you for taking the time to respond.

The workers will randomly decide when they want to take 2 orders from 1 car. Sometimes they let you, usually they say they can't.

Review №66

The food and service is great. Restaurant was very clean..BUT...My question, why is the personnel making the food wearing gloves and changing them often. But while I'm eating my meal the owners come in attend to a few things then decides to make himself something to eat WITHOUT GLOVES (sticks his hands directly into the onions) in front of customers like it was ok..But it's not.. It may be his restaurant but good "HYGIENE" does exist..

Terrible service, one cussed at us. My friend was being rude I will admit. I wasn't though. Charged us 10 cents for additional salt packets, well any more than two. Was told that was the rules. Was told they couldn't take 2 orders from one vehicle. Said we'd have to come inside but the dining room was closed. I was too afraid to eat my food for fear they spit in it. My friend was rude because the two workers were really just awful from the start. I don't like to be that way to the people making my food though. I ended up paying and throwing out what I bought after I got back to work. Lesson learned I suppose.

I give You 5 Stars because of Jared K!!! He has the BEST Customer Service skills I've experienced in a long time. I drive thru approximately 5-6 times per month. Each and Every time, he is polite, engaging, very professional..actually tonight when I drove thru there was I line around by the front door, not only did I get through in only a few minutes...Jared was just as polite, courtesy, smiling asking did I want "hot sauce " as if there hadn't been a long line ..Please Please Clone Jared, for all my restaurant interactionsTRULY A PLEASURE COMING TO YOUR LOCATION.!!!! THANK YOU AGAIN JARED
