If you are not familiar with Cincinnati chili, this isn't your traditional chili, but it is delicious. We have now been here twice and both times are wait staff have made us feel at home. We have always gone to Skyline since we have those near our house, but when visiting Jungle Jim's, we decided to see if there was... More

We don't have this in Nashville, so we stop every time we're in town. We love these little coney's! The service was great and prices were reasonable, parking good.

Apparently this is a thing in Cincinnati. They call it "Cincinnati style chili," but is is really a very watery sloppy joe mix with too much sugar, more cinnamon there should ever be in savory beef dish, and a complete absence of peppers and onions (and beans). I grant it that the sauce may have a bit of tomato in... More

It had been 18 years since my last trip to Ohio, but 30 years since my last 5 way! It was AWESOME! Better than Skyline. Cincinnati Chili is the best.

This was the first time I had ever eaten at a Gold Star Chili. I travel for work and see them periodically. This time I decided to try it. The food was ok. I would get the coney dogs next time. The employees were really nice cool people. I would go back.

The food as usual was very good. We had the 3 and 5 ways with a coney on the side. Their menu has expanded since the last time we visited. The wait stay was very helpful

The chili was flavored well, but the texture was too watery. I am used to a thicker chili. More meat added would have given the chili some more thickness.

We are total snobs when it comes to Cincinnati chili, we are diehard Skyline fans. We were visiting Jungle Jim's and decided to try Gold Star Chili. I had the 3 way with the coney, it was served hot and fresh. The flavor was excellent and the dish was loaded with tons of cheese. Our waitress was a doll and... More
