Generally, it's not fair to just compare Goldstar and Skyline. Lot's of great small places in town; Pleasant Ridge, Delhi Chili and any restaurant run by a greek family, of which there are about a zillion.
When I was a kid my dad's favorite was Empress. I don't think they are around anymore.
A new Empress just opened downtown, at Seventh and Vine.
Since I'm not that big of a chili fan I like the places that have character: Pleasant Ridge Chili, Camp Washington Chili, Blue Ash Chili, the Oakley Skyline on Madison, the old Price Hill Skyline, the Kenwood Skyline is OK.
For Cincinnati food, I'll take LaRosa's.
