10 Reasons I'm A Raising Cane's 'Caniac' And Always Will Be

Because any restaurant with a dog as the mascot is a winner in my book.

Raising Cane's is a fast food restaurant that specializes in one thing: chicken fingers. It was opened by Baton Rouge native Todd Graves in 1996. In the years since, it has become a staple in the lives of many, college students in particular. As a self-proclaimed enthusiast, here's a list of 10 things I love about Raising Cane's:

1. Not the coleslaw

So, this isn't technically a thing that I love, but I felt it was important to mention. In my lifetime, I've seen maybe three people actually eat their coleslaw, and one of those people was my mom. I think all of the coleslaw should be thrown into the never-ending abyss, but I digress.

2. The few choices

Nothing is more stressful than the cashier at a fast food restaurant asking you what you want before you're ready to order. How can you give me 157 choices and ask me to tell you which one I want in 35 seconds?! Luckily, with Raising Cane's, the choices are pretty simple: you can choose from three different combos of chicken strips, or you can choose a chicken sandwich combo. No awkward pauses necessary.

3. The lemonade

It's sweet, but not too sweet. It's the perfect addition to any combo! Sure, there's an upcharge for adding it to your meal, but life is short. Get the lemonade.

4. The drive-thru people

Who can get tired of hearing, "Chicken, chicken, chicken, what combo ya pickin'?" I don't know if this is pre-recorded or not, but it's still a fun (albeit pressuring) and unique way to greet customers.

5. The late hours

The hours for Raising Cane's varies by location and days, but "The Mothership" (the very first Raising Cane's, located right off of LSU's campus) stays open until 3:30 a.m. Thursday - Saturday. This makes Cane's a perfect spot for a bite after a night out, or during an all-nighter, if that's the way you roll!

6. The speed

I'm not sure if you've noticed, but not all "fast food" is particularly fast (Sonic on Burbank, anyone?) However, this is not the case for Cane's! I can't remember a time I waited more than five minutes for my food, and it's always hot and fresh.

7. The fries

By just looking at them, there's nothing special about these fries. But they're always served hot, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. McDonald's has nothing on Cane's fries!

8. The chicken

Of course, the restaurant is called "Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers," so no list would be complete without the mention of the chicken. You'll have to wait a few minutes before enjoying them if you don't want to burn your fingerprints off, but sometimes permanent disfigurement is worth deliciousness. It's crunchy, juicy, and overall just awesome. 10/10 would recommend!

9. The Texas toast

Everyone loves bread. It's just a fact of life, honestly, and Cane's Texas Toast reigns supreme. Every piece is tasty and soft. In fact, I have a friend who only goes to Cane's for the toast. Yeah, it's that good.

10. The sauce

Thought I'd forgotten about the pièce de résistance? Nope, I was just saving the best for last. I'm convinced that Cane's sauce is the nectar of the gods. I don't know exactly what's in it, but it could probably cause world peace. Imagine if everybody tasted Cane's sauce! The world would be a better place.

And that's all! Peace, love, & Cane's Sauce!

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
