They specialize in chicken so you only get chicken wings or a chicken sandwich. Love the garlic bread and fries. I like to use their dipping sauce and since my family doesn't like it I get to eat their share.

Just happen to be passing buy and we were hungry. Some of the best chicken fingers I've ever ate. Meal was wonderful. Service was wonderful.

The chicken is awesome and service is quick. Love the Cane's sauce. Substitutions made easily & no charge for most. Could use a little bigger parking lot.

We always have to stop here when we're in town! We love Raising Canes! Although its usually very crowded with a very small seating area, the food is worth it tho!

when In Lincoln we usually eat at Raising Canes. The food is always great and I really like the sweet tea. I would have to say they need to do a better job at cleaning the tables after people leave.

This is our kids favorite place to eat when we go out. Not only is the food good, but they have some great local history on the walls.

The chicken strips are delish. My husband ate here about 2 weeks ago and I must say I was a little hesitant. I'm not usually a strip eater because they are usually too doughy and dry, but these Cane's strips are incredible. They are lightly breaded and very moist. Now if they only had Ranch flavor dipping sauce. The Cane's... More

My family eats here an average of once a month. The reason it is a family favorite is because the meals are made fresh to order, the chicken strips contain a lot of meat, the sweet tea and lemonade taste good, the Canes sauce is good, and the employees make it a fun experience. However, keep in mind, Canes only... More

Always good. Substitute extra bread for the coleslaw. Also, get an extra sauce because it's awesome!!! You won't be disappointed.
