Melissa, my first friend in Atlanta, has recently relocated back to the city after thinking she needed to live in Alabama. Her new condo is located across the street from Curly's Fried Chicken. On the Friday night that I was there, I was hungry. We had dinner reservations at 9:30 p.m. at JCT Kitchen, but it was around 5 p.m. and I had been shopping all day and needed something to eat before waiting five more hours. The only logical thing I could think of doing was walking across the street and ordering fried chicken, coleslaw and macaroni and cheese. Oh, and sweet tea.
There it is. Curly's Fried Chicken.
What is one to do? Walk across the street of course.
Check out the menu.
It's a little bit of Southern heaven on a board.
Lots of specials and even some t-shirts.
I ordered the two-piece meal with coleslaw and maccaronni and cheese.
It was $8.
Because of the crowd (this place always has people) and the freshness, I waited.
Once I picked up my order I headed back to Melissa's.
And we dug in. See the little red sauce on the left?
That's good. Real good.
Eat it witcha chicken.
Curly's Fried Chicken is good. Real good.
If you're in Atlanta I suggest visiting.
