A Curly's Barbecue Sandwich - they forgot the chips.
Curly's Chicken House, very AMERICAN, 2100 Lake Road - see map on right for directions. Chicken, chicken, and more chicken. Broiled chicken, chicken sandwiches, etc. Curly's is an old Elmira kind of place. Stuck in the 1950s. Our last visit was 7/16/2015 with 3 guests - dinner. A true Elmira experience. Elmirans at their most "Elmiran." Sort of a diner. We picked a bad day to go, huge party in the back. Waitresses were flustered - 1 1/2 hour wait - lost order.For you out-of-towners if you order barbecued chicken, do not expect standard the tomato/barbecue-style recipe - this is "Curly's style" barbecue rotisserie chicken. Get fries with gravy. Welcome to Elmira. This is us. $
