We recently got a Raising Canes in Anchorage Alaska, but when I saw 3 chicken strips, fries, and a drink was $11.00, I decided they were out of their minds. Came to Texas to visit family and
Tried out this location and was pleasantly surprised. Chicken is juicy, crispy and great taste. I like Crinkle cut fries and the
Toast was not bad. For just over 6 bucks, I would come again. Still not sure it's worthy of $11.00 even when we expect to pay more in Alaska.
Good food, clean restaurant and friendly staff. What else do you want? If you prefer your chicken as tender slices of breast meat instead of bone in then Raising Cane's should be a legitimate alternative to other similar restaurants. The menu is very simple and with one exception (a chicken sandwich) you get various number of tenders with fries and perhaps coleslaw. Enjoy
When this place first opened we stopped in at the drive thru to try them out. I remembered that the portions were large and the tenders were thicker than at most places. I remembered that it had been pretty good, but not much else.
We stopped by this weekend and decided to go inside this time. I was surprised by the décor, the brightness from the windows and the friendly faces. This is probably the only fast food place in 500 miles to have a disco ball! Well, I mean I don't know, but seriously how many places have a disco ball?
My husband ordered a box combo which has 4 tenders, fries, toast and coleslaw with an upgraded large soda for $7.71, it was a 20 cent upcharge for the large drink. I ordered the sandwich combo with fries and a lemonade which was $6.69. Since they squeeze the lemonade fresh daily, the lemonade is 30 cents more than the other drinks and served behind the counter.
I thought it was pretty weird that they kept calling back each item as we ordered it. It seemed like they should just let us finish the order and then call it back. Well! What do I know? They had that order done right as we finished getting our drinks and were looking for a place to sit. I was impressed with how fast it was. They call out 'Hot and fresh chicken for (your name)!' and it's not a lie!
The toast is great, I really liked it last time. It's big and thick and has sesame seeds. Since my meal didn't come with it, I went back to the counter and ordered a piece on its own for 85 cents. The friendly cashier suggested buttered on both sides. I asked if that made it greasy and though he conceded it was a little greasier, he highly recommended it. Since it was no additional cost, I consented and he called back a BOB! Yeah, this is definitely the way to go. If you like toast with your chicken, you will love this.
Though I enjoyed the sandwich, with 3 big tenders on there, it was difficult to hold it together. Just getting the tenders is definilty easier to eat, but I was able to appreciate the Cane sauce more by having the sandwich, so I'm glad I tried it.
I see what everyone is talking about, more so than last time, that sauce is really good. I don't care for a lot of sauce normally so I probably barely dipped it when I tried it last time. This time I realized that stuff is great on everything- the bun, the tenders, the fries!
The fries are thin crinkle cut fries and though not bad, I recommend ketchup or Cane sauce as they need a little bit of help. The lemonade tasted really good, it wasn't too sweet and it wasn't watered down. That's about the extent of my lemonade knowledge, I don't drink a lot of it, but I would get it again!
The chicken is hot, juicy and a good portion. It's definitly better than KFC and the prices are reasonable to or cheaper than similar places. I ate about half my meal before I got full. My husband barely finished his and he was stuffed; he plans to get the 3 piece next time. He's got a big appetite and we were really hungry when we arrived so I was really pleased with the value we got for the price. I expect to leave full and they definitely delivered on that.
While we were there the staff was extremely friendly and attentive. We were checked on multiple times and they removed some of our trash throughout the visit. I was offered a tray when my order was ready faster than expected and my hands were full. There were smiling faces everywhere!
Between the good service, comfortable booths and the good food, I almost forgot I was at a fast food place! I was really impressed with this location and recomend you drop by and dine in.
Usually visit because it's my nearest Cane's and the late hours
* customer service is usually pretty stale, unfortunately
* usually takes five minutes from ordering to leaving
* not the most accurate, I typically order extra sauce and never get it, so unfortunately when I visit, I have to check the bag to make sure all of my items are inside (shouldn't have to)
* food is always hot and fresh, that's the one thing that keeps me coming back
Well first off can we talk about the amazing music they play! It's so lively in there to be with your friends enjoying the moment. Or even if you sit alone by a window- it's a great experience everytime!! I can't tell you all the Shazam's I've gotten here!!!!!!
2nd- they're tea is wonderful- super sweet to a Texans perfection/liking!
3rd- this place is stationed in a good location. They get a lot of business for it. But I'm pretty sure it also has to do with their great staff. They are so quick-clean-kind ;) they make me wanna help and pass out trays.
4- they're not McD's thank heavens!!
