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.

Have only been here for lunch, but Curly's has great food with a very good cost/quality factor. I have never left there hungry. Wait staff is always prompt, attentive and friendly.

From the moment you walk into Curly's the aroma of well cooked food is apparent. The visit to the menu may take longer than you might expect with all the choices, but all in all it is a welcome sight. Little hint, the chicken and rib dinner is way too much to eat. The ribs must have been cooking for... More

My brother-in-law and his wife visted us to go out to dinner. They had lived in Elmira years ago and were familiar with Curly's. They hadn't been there in years. When you walk in they have a very large menu board with many selections listed. This was new to them and they were impressed with the different items listed. The... More

I went here for the first time with my wife and kids. It was for a family surprise party and we had a large rear section to ourselves. Service was fine. I liked most of the food but the coleslaw was incredibly dry. I've been told how good it usually is so I would get them another try on that.... More

I meet with an early morning (7am) networking group at this restaurant each week. They provide a private area for our meeting, service is prompt, and menu selection is varied meeting the needs of each member of the group.

One would think that with a name like "Curly's Chicken House" you'd find A LOT more choices as far as chicken goes. As it was they had Chicken and Biscuits, Roasted Chicken, grilled chicken sandwiches, chicken tenders and chicken wings... but NO FRIED CHICKEN! I was hugely disappointedand and rather shocked not to see that on the menu. Be that... More
