Raising Cane's has a tight menu, so it's no surprise that Springfield dubbed its chicken strips the best. Even though Cane's only entered the crowded Springfield fried chicken market this past March, it has already made a strong impression among residents.
Raising Cane's serves just chicken strips, crinkle-cut fries, Texas toast and coleslaw – allowing it to quickly serve top-notch food so you don't have to worry about a long wait. Cane's marinates its chicken for 24 hours and then cooks it to order so it can provide customers with fresh, hot and favorable chicken that has a light but crispy batter.
Along with chicken strips, Raising Cane's is also famous for its Cane's Sauce, made in-house on a daily basis as the perfect accompaniment to its chicken fingers. It's a top-secret recipe so we can't say what's in it (even if we knew), but our readers made a point of praising this accompaniment. Raising Cane's also has a less well-known dipping sauce available upon request – house-made honey mustard.
Diners who prefer to have their chicken on a bun have the option of three chicken fingers on a lightly toasted bun topped with lettuce and Cane's signature sauce. While not a menu item, we suggest substituting the bun with the Texas toast (BOB - buttered on both sides) to add some decadence to your visit.
