ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – The Ohio-based chain known for putting chili on pasta — Skyline Chili — is set to open its first location in Central Florida later this month.

The company announced on Facebook that the location at 2231 Western Way in Disney’s Flamingo Crossings Town Center will open in November. The announcement did not provide an exact opening date, however.


The Orange County location was first announced by Skyline Chili in July 2022.

This location will be Skyline’s sixth Florida restaurant, according to the company’s website.

Skyline Chili is known for its spaghetti topped with Cincinnati chili but also sells hot dogs, salads, wraps and fries.

According to the company, the restaurant chain was started in 1949 by Nicholas Lambrinides, who was born in Greece and immigrated to Cincinnati with his family.
