A new fried chicken joint opened near me. It is called Raising Canes Quality Chicken.

I’m a huge fan of Raising Cane’s. They are pricey, but their chicken is fresh and NEVER frozen. With some internet sleuthing a few years ago, I was able to come up with a very close approximation of their signature dipping sauce.

Now when it comes to overpriced and meh, that’s how I feel about Hard 8 Barbeque. Was not impressed and haven't’ been back.

'Posted about Hard 8 a long while back. Silly ordering system and service that, I think, they think would impress people. It doesn't. BUT, it's run by kids, so what do you expect?

Which happens to be, ironically, the impressive part about Raising Cane's - the menu is like 3 choices, no options, so a 16 year old can't mess it up! It has worked so well for the guy that he's doing Restaurant rescue TV and is on the national news. I don't eat there and I've always bitched about teenagers running restaurants, but, this guy has embraced it and made a killing.

Where I hunt deer in Kansas, there is a Chesters Chicken in a gas station/convenience store. During the week the special is 4 tenders and 4 potato wedges for $4. I bet that poor lady fries for 8 hours straight!! Awesome reason to break for lunch. smile

The guy that started Hard 8 died some years back. I don't think it's a coincidence that quality has gone downhill.
I like Raisin Canes but it is a little pricey for what you get.

Did not know that. I have only eaten at the one in The Colony and that was over a year ago. Seems that happens to a lot of places. Walmart was a great employer when Sam Walton was still alive but it went downhill when the sons took over. My mom worked there throughout that time frame and witnessed it firsthand.

Tried Raising Canes 4 or 5 times, not impressed. Would be a whole lot better if they wouldn't serve their food in styrofoam boxes. Doesn't take long at all for the food to steam and get soggy.

I like Raising Canes, could drink the dipping sauce, that is the main reason I like it. Using non frozen chicken I couldnt care less if they froze it.

If you eat in the restaurant it does not come in a styrofoam box and I agree is much better that way.
