Is Raising Canes worth the hype?

A picture of the delicious chicken finger meal with a side of sauce, coleslaw and a beverage.

Between the 3 finger combo meal, the friendly staff and the spotless cleanliness, Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers in Methuen, is now a go-to. 

Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers is an American fast food chain that specializes in chicken finger meals and was founded in 1996 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, by Todd Graves and Craig Silvey. The 3-finger combo comes with 3 chicken fingers, crinkle cut fries, Texas  toast, canes sauce and a choice of fountain drink. As you walk in, the staff greets you and you step up to order. The restaurant is very clean, no overflowing trash or scraps on the ground. The meal is very simple and put together nicely with the focus on the chicken. 

The chicken was moist and flavorful, with the bread crumb over it making it the perfect combination. When the chicken is dunked in the “cane’s sauce” it becomes even better as it pulls everything together with flavors of ketchup and mayo contributing to the seasoning and crispiness of the tenders. The canes sauce has a perfect mix of tangy, sweet and salty. 

The lightly salted fries make for the perfect side of this chicken finger meal. The crinkle cut shape gives a unique texture that is even better than your standard fast food fried potatoes, with the perfect combination of crunchy and soft. Again, the canes sauce adds the perfect flavor and makes the meal that much better.

Finally, the Texas toast brings everything together at the end with that perfect soft and buttery piece of bread, which is toasted and is perfectly fluffy, soft and even has a bit of a crispy texture to it.

Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers is worth the hype it has been given in 2023. I would give this fast food restaurant a 5 out of 5 stars. Each food item between the chicken fingers, texas toast and fries are absolutely delicious. Many have been comparing Raising Canes to Chick-Fil-A. These two fast food chicken chains are equally delicious, different in their own way and both have their own specialty sauces.

My name is Reaghan DeLisi and I'm a senior at Triton High School. I am a cheerleader in the fall which consists of practices everyday after school, cheering at football games every Friday and competing at quite a few competitions. In the winter I manage wrestling which also consists of helping at practices everyday and going to meets and tournaments. I work at a restaurant on the weekends and some nights after school. I have four siblings and love to hangout with my friends and family. I enjoy writing about things that I know students around my school will be interested in. Trends, sports, and people are popular topics that I am excited to write about. Journalism gives you independence and responsibility while entertaining others. The school newspaper is important for people in the building to know what others are interested in and what is going on in the world around us. The school newspaper is similar to social media where people can show their personality through posts. After I graduate high school I plan on taking a gap year and working. Then I plan to go to aesthetician school and get my license to work in aesthetics. I have always enjoyed doing things with beauty such as hair, make up, and skincare.
