Limited menu - exclusively chicken and chicken-related. But the atmosphere is friendly, family-like and the pricing very reasonable. And the chicken is very good.

Won't go again for supper. Slow, inattentive service for only so so chicken. Breakfast is good (though fairly high priced) and Amy is great.

My grandfather goes to Curly's for breakfast nearly every week, and often dinner that same week. He's loved the place for over 40 years, and it's a must hit when I'm home to visit. Super friendly service, and great prices. Not the healthiest place, but lots of great options!

On our way home for NY City up the amazing HWY 17 and we decided to stop in Elmira for a stretch and some lunch. Tams spotted Curly's and the parking lot was full at 2:30 ON Monday - the locals must like it. This is old school eating out of the 70s and the prices are from the 70s... More

It has been 34 years since the passing of my Grandmother, and hard to believe even after all these years the family atmosphere still remains solid!! Thank you Curly's for the continued... More

You go there for two things rotis chicken and Friday fish fry which is awesome and one of the best Mac n cheese you will ever have as a side, others like the chicken biscuits and ribs yes it's not pretty or fancy but its good cheap comfort food we go once a week.

The chicken is good and the Friday fish fry with homemade mac and cheese are great and a good value. I recommend not going late. The normally delicious chicken will sometimes be dry later in the evening. Overall good value and nice portions.
