Well, leave it to the better half of the Ambiguously Foodie Duo to spill the beans. As first noted by @EatItAtlanta, Curly’s Fried Chicken has now opened at 1021 Howell Mill, the previous home to Julia LeRoy’s eponymous LeRoy’s Fried Chicken. According to the Curly’s website, Curly is Steve’s dad and Steve is the dude who runs Curly’s.
The menu at Curly’s is a little more expansive than LeRoy’s as it includes white fish and fried shrimp in addition to fried chicken and some classic Southern sides. Prices are much more reasonable than they were under the previous tenant. I’ll hit y’all up with the 411 re: how the food tastes just as soon as I have more time on my hands. In the meantime, Jimmy already walked up and tried it. See what he had to say.
