Never been to nor had a desire to go to Raising Cane's.  My takeaway from this thread is they suck.  Can I get a better experience by throwing some Tyson chicken tenders into the Fry Daddy?

I think you would get the exact same experience

my first experience w/ cane's was bad but i've been many times since and it's not a bad place.  very good coating to chicken ratio and while a spicy version would be nice, their regular tenders dipped in gates hot & spicy are good. 

also, if you're complaining about chicken tenders being bland, you should take a look in the mirror and ask yourself why you're complaining about a food that's most popular with 5 year olds is bland.

The sig’spi’ on their canes sauce is extra mild ranch dressing and a 1/4 ratio of honey mustard/water.

There’s a chicken finger chain down here called Layne’s that started in College Station. Their chicken and fries taste exactly like Raising Canes but Aggies will get butthurt if you don’t say Layne’s is better.

I think they fry the chicken in raisin oil.

Can we talk about the fries (and the food in general) at the Hi-Lo for a minute? They have the best crinkle fries I've ever had.

I really love crinkle cut fries places that honor the "extra crispy" order.  You get some places that meet that request with either ignorance, or disdain.

i stopped by gates on main st yesterday for lunch and always order my fries extra crispy from them, rarely do they come that way though.
but yesterday they were great.  i also got a combo and a half (brisket and turkey) to go along with my crispy fries.

I had gates on Saturday for the first time in forever and wow was it good.

Did you know Chick-Fil-A has waffle potato chips?  They look like little tiny baby waffle fries.  Very adorable.
