I don’t know the brand, but all I can tell you that it feels like the only real American fast food experience in Lebanon! “Raising Cane’s” takes you on a trip to the United States and back, a typical fast food diner... probably a hundred times cleaner and tastier than KFC. Raising Cane’s is the new kid on the block selling one single item: the chicken finger.
Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers is a fast-food restaurant chain specializing in chicken fingers and chicken fingers only, that was founded in Baton Rouge, Louisiana by Todd Graves and Craig Silvey on August 26, 1996. While company headquarters remain in Louisiana, a second restaurant support office was opened in Plano, Texas in 2009.
Now open in Spot Choueifat, Raising Cane’s is a grab and go concept, fast food with a professional service and great food. Order, full in your big soft drink glass and wait to be served. Everything is clean, well managed, bright and professional; I felt good the minute I walked in.
The concept is clear, and the menu Is simple: chicken fingers, cane sauce, coleslaw and Texas toast. Grab a giant plastic cup and fill it with soft drinks or iced tea.
Good stuff is sold here: fried chicken fingers, non-oily, not soaked in oil, a light crispy envelop and a big chunk of juicy white chicken. Your chicken plate comes with the best -American style- coleslaw out there and curly fries. Wait until you’ve tried the super soft fluffy bread bun! OMG! The sauce: not sweet and not creamy, red-colored and super tasty.
This is what real fried chicken is all about! Finally, something clean and tasty, not oily and professionally managed. I loved it and will surely come back! I had the chance to meet Rabih, the manager and thanked him for his efforts to turn American fast food into a destination and an experience.
