Curley's - Stamford, CT

I have been in Stamford about 3 1/2 years now and it took me until a month and a half ago to eat at Curley's, which I guess can be called a Stamford landmark downtown.  It is open 24 hours a day and is conveniently located across the street from the bars.  After a going away happy hour, GRPD, Keary and I decided it was neccessary to get something to eat.  Layla's and Garden Catering were closed (it was about 11:30 on a Tuesday night) so we decided to go to Curley's.  While deciding on what to eat, GRPD ordered some Chocolate Chip Pancakes for the table, which I later decided to dip in ketchup. 

Without even looking at the menu I ordered the turkey club with chili cheese fries, Keary decided on a chili cheese burger with chili cheese fries, and after a brief debate, GRPD went with the Jets.  After seeing the chili cheese fries with our sandwiches, GRPD made a quick audible and requested them also.

The service was great, and the food was pretty good.  I mean I spent that previous 4 hours drinking pint glasses of vodka and club soda so I guess a lot of things would be considered good.   GRPD and Keary also thought there food was good.  My only complaint is that I dont think there was any bacon on the club sandwich, which can be considered a good thing since my diet has not been the greatest since starting this blog.

In addition to his sandwich, GRPD enjoyed a Guiness Winter Stout which was similar to a regular Guiness, except the seasonal winter stout is infused with lycopene and hints of maple or a 3 second count of ketchup and 2 splashes of syrup to be exact.  You can see a glimps of the stout and how it is half way completed in the top corner of the picture of 'The Jets'.

GRPD thought it would be neccessary to order some Chocolate Chip Pancakes as an appetizer.  I thought it would be a great idea to dip mine in ketchup.

Turkey Club with Chili Cheese Fries.  The fries were krinkle cut which made them even better.

GRPD ordered The JETS - Pastrami, Kraut, Swiss, and Mustard.  If only the New York Jets were as good as this sandwich.

    I don't know what's better....the recipe for GRPD's guiness winter stout or the fact that you used 1/2 a bottle of ketchup to dip your chocolate chip pancake into..all in all an awesome hole-in-the-wall.

  2. The ketchup was a nice touch, I highly recommend it.

  3. Don't forget Lunch Pail's dessert - saltines by the handful.
