Raising Cane's Coming to Tyler

If you have ever dined at a Raising Cane’s restaurant, you will immediately understand why this announcement deserves a blog post.

A famous chicken finger restaurant is heading to Tyler in the near future.  Raising Cane’s is to open at the corner of Broadway and Loop 323, just in front of the First Christian Church of Tyler.  They have already begun the landscaping work to prepare for the grand opening (cutting down trees, landscaping, etc.).  The city has not released a grand opening date for the restaurant, but the anticipation is still causing a large amount of excitement for the community.

If you have not been lucky enough to partake in some of the delicious chicken products from Raising Cane’s, you are seriously missing out.  Famous for their chicken fingers and their dipping sauce, the restaurant holds its origins in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in 1996, and has since expanded to many states in the South and Midwest United States. 

This is the first of several restaurants rumored to open in the coming months, including Steak and Shake on University Boulevard, across from the UT Tyler campus, Five Guys Burgers and Fries, and Razzoo’s Cajun Restaurant.   All of these are very good restaurants, but the one that has me the most excited is Raising Cane’s.

Fun fact about Raising Cane’s: While NBA superstar Dwight Howard was in discussion with the Dallas Mavericks in regards to joining the team, Dallas-Ft. Worth area Raising Cane’s ran a campaign to convince Howard to sign on with the team.  If he were to do so, the chain would give him free chicken fingers for life, an offer that would cost nearly $530,000 for the restaurant.  I am not sure how he was able to pass that offer up.

For more information about the restaurant, as well as new locations in the future, check out their website.  Get excited people, because their chicken is seriously delicious
