Not all fast food is created equal, and Raising Canes is nothing like its competitors. The story of the food chain begins in Louisiana, where the very first one opened; it is now located in many different states, but is still hard to come by. Many Northerners who visit this local gem are pleasantly surprised. While there may be many fried-chicken based companies, Raising Canes is the only one that actually doesn’t give you many options; it is also one of the few where options aren’t even a concern. They are a growing company and thriving, because the choices that they do offer are just plain delicious. The chicken is fresh, breaded and fried per order, so you can rest assured that you’re not eating a pre-made piece of fried chicken that was simply reheated before your order. One of the company’s sayings they thrive on is their “commitment to quality”; they want their customers to know that they are eating the best fried chicken there is to offer, and that their food is never frozen with pure ingredients.
Since the brand only offers a few choices, their service is especially fast. There’s no muss or fuss when trying to decide what you will choose, because you can only choose between four different meals, and three different sides: you’re either getting the Caniac, the Sandwich, the 3 Finger or the Box, with coleslaw, crinkle fries, or Texas toast that’s so soft and flavorful, you won’t believe your taste buds. The only downside to the company is that they aren’t exactly healthy, so people who are either vegetarian, vegan, have health or diet concerns don’t have much to choose between, unless they simple get a few slices of lettuce. Since Cane’s doesn’t even offer a salad, if you’re trying to watch your weight or limit your intake of fried foods, this is not the place for you.
