CINCINNATI – Don't worry, Skyline Chili fans: The popular Clifton chili parlor will look a little different, but it should still feel familiar when it reopens 10 a.m. Monday.

The store, located at 290 Ludlow Ave., closed earlier this week for a remodeling project that included installing new tables, countertops and flooring, according to Skyline Chili spokeswoman Samantha Molony.

In an email, Molony emphasized "the classic decor our Clifton customers love will remain, including the iconic photos."

The Clifton chili parlor first opened in 1966 and remains one of the busiest Skyline locations, according to local historian Dann Woellert in his book "The Authentic History of Cincinnati Chili."
