Cheap Eats: Curly's Fried Chicken

Posted By on Tue, Aug 21, 2012 at 10:15 AM

Reading the menu at Curly's Fried Chicken is a lot like watching a Grammy winner giving an acceptance speech packed with shout-outs to friends and family. Mama Jean, thank you for your thick and creamy mac and cheese. Steve, without your Cajun rice, I wouldn't know what to do with all that ground beef and salt. Aunt Gail, your famous sweet tea is the light of my life. And Curly, without you, we wouldn't be here in the first place. Yes, Curly's has a familial feel, with at least 18 names mentioned on the menu, from Aleane's coleslaw to Tanisha and her chosen combo of three sides and a drink. I'm not sold, though, that the shout-outs are always a good thing. Judging on her fried okra, I'm guessing Chantel works at Sysco.
