The food was great, unfortunately I got sick the next day with a bad gluten reaction.

Fantastic! Very knowledgeable about Celiac and cross contamination. Servers are trained on ALL menu items, especially preparation of gluten free options. Almost everything in the menu can be made GF. I had the stuffed banana peppers, the black bean soup, the jerk chicken sandwich on a gf bun, and even dessert! They have a dedicated fryer, so I was able to safely eat French fries for the first time in years! Everything I had was absolutely delicious, and I ate my meal with confidence that I would not be ill. I have been going to Curly’s since they opened, and will continue to frequent the restaurant when I am in Buffalo for the summers. Truly a safe place for Celiacs!

I got their GF silky and smooth pasta dish with chicken and it was incredible. Almost everything on their menu can be made gluten free, which is always a bonus! The food and staff were great and I will definitely be going again.

You will NOT REGRET dining at Curly’s. I promise you! The owner and family are very knowledgeable of Celiacs (as their family has many celiacs), they educate their wait staff, chefs, everyone within the facility. Dedicated spaces, nearly everything is edible for us! And it’s DELICIOUS!!!

We had mussels which were tasty, and My duck was very good but my husband’s Chicken was dry and the dessert custard was sub par. My husband is very sensitive to CC and he didn’t get sick so I think 4 star is reasonable.

Best gluten free meal I’ve had in the Buffalo area in a while! I had the grilled portobello on a gf bun and the Korean wings in sweet chili sauce. It was DELICIOUS! Their menu is clearly marked and they are doing curb side pick up during COVID-19.

Quality was exceptional!

Every time I’ve gone to Curly’s the staff has been extremely helpful. They have a dedicated fryer for fries and offer a gluten free fish fry that is delicious! They have tons of gluten free options and you can get gluten free cookies for dessert!!

There's very few options that aren't gluten free. If you miss having free range on a menu; this place is a godsend. And it's absolutely delicious.

In one word "Outstanding". The menu appears brief at first but soon you realize these aren't your everyday appetizers, sandwiches or entrees. The more I read the more difficulty I had in deciding which eloquently described item to choose. A particularly easy to decipher gluten free/healthy choice selection and easily located using a GF free locator app. This establishment is well ahead of the curve. On to the food...just when we thought nothing could top the jamaican jerk wings our sandwiches arrived.There are not words that can adequately describe the depth of delicious the "PLT" sandwich brings to the table. It appears there are no wrong choices with their menu, anything you order is likely to bring you back again and again. Excellent service...ridiculously good food and GF friendly...Curly's is a must eat.

Love this Restaraunt, the staff is very knowledgable about the needs of those who need a gluten free diet. The food is delicious , the price is very reasonable for the cuisine and atmosphere offered. If you go and are eating GF you MUST order their GF chocolate chip cookies, they are the most amazing GF cookies I have had in my 7 years of being GF!
