“Bring your Appetite!!! Good homestyle food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2011

I have been in Elmira for 14 years and never tried Curly's. Then there was an advertizement on Groupigg, they had a buy one chicken dinner and get another free. So I thougth ok we will try it. You will NOT be dissapointed. Their chicken was great and the side dishes were larger than you would expect. There was enough to take home for Lunch or Dinner tomorrow. There were alot of items on the menu that we want to go back and try. And while walking out I passed a table where they were having desert and it was huge. The waitress was friendly and the lady that checked us out very courteous and helpfull. (I forget to tell the waitress that it was to be 2 different checks)

“Breakfast is the best in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2011

I eat breakfast, 3 or 4 times a week at Curly's. It has to be the best place in town. I've eaten Fish, Chicken, Meatloaf & Turkey and so on, I have yet to find anything bad tasting. Everything I've eaten has been great..
