On April 26, 2017 a branch of the Louisiana-based fast food restaurant chain called “Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers” opened off of Route 59 in Naperville. The restaurant has been highly anticipated, as people were excited about the prospect of quick, affordable, Southern-style chicken fingers.

As you walk into the restaurant, you are greeted by the familiarity of local high school representation and many forms of Chicago memorabilia on the walls. Also, the large mural depicting the chain’s logo catches your eye as you go to order your food. The staff is as efficient as it is friendly, and there is generally a cheerful ambience to the restaurant.

The menu offers four main combinations: “The Box Combo,” “The 3-Finger Combo,” “The Caniac Combo,” and “The Sandwich Combo.” The former three are different chicken finger options, and the latter is a chicken sandwich option.

Although the menu is extremely limited, the food provided is certainly satisfying. The presentation of the food is aesthetically pleasing. The chicken is perfectly fried and does not have too much breading like a normal fast food restaurant would, although good chicken finger are to be expected from a chicken finger restaurant. They offer you plenty of fries to accompany your chicken, and even though they are nothing out of the ordinary, they are still tasty. The texas toast is the cherry on top of the meal, as it brings a truly Southern feel to the meal. But if the meal gets to be too starchy with all the fried food and bread, they have a side of delicious cole slaw that adds extra flavor to the meal. The restaurant’s secret signature sauce to dip your chicken or fries into is an acquired taste (Rahul loved it but Lanie found it strange). An addition to your meal that we would recommend is the restaurant’s sweet tea, which, adhering to its Southern reputation, is excellent.

Overall, this restaurant is not mind-blowing or spectacular. That said it is certainly good and will have one craving it’s chicken fingers from time to time. It’s a welcome addition to Naperville and earns 4 out of 5 stars.

    Wow I wasn’t aware that this place has been here over a year! Is it just me or did it seem like it just opened a week ago?

    I had just recently went to this new location, their sauce is great. The chicken fingers aren’t much to boast about. Unless you eat it with the sauce. 🙂 It’s a good restaurant, if you ever get the taste for chicken tenders, it’s a great place to visit.

    This chicken is better than Chick Fil A by a mile. If you want some high end chicken I would recommend this place. I. Love. Their. Chicken.

    The chicken there is not that good. I got food poisoning from it.

    The sauce is the best sauce I have ever had. Even if you are vegetarian, you should go get some fries or chicken and eat it with the sauce. It is so good.
