Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers Grand Opening Creates Buzz in Elk Grove

After much anticipation, Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers, located at 9164 E Stockton Blvd, held its ribbon cutting and grand opening on Tuesday, February 22nd.

Elk Grove Deputy Mayor Darren Suen and Assemblyman Jim Cooper attended. In addition, members of the Elk Grove Chamber of Commerce, such as President and CEO Angela Perry; Zaymah Kanemoto; and Genny Fulp were also present.

Suen highlighted how challenging the food service industry is and how the pandemic has further hampered business success. Still, Suen hopes to know how the community and the local economy will benefit from the restaurant.

“The food service industry is a tough business, especially in recent times. Coming out of the pandemic, it’s great to see this community-oriented restaurant open its doors in Elk Grove!”

So far, members of the Elk Grove community are responding well to the city’s new addition, as many are noticing the boost in the city’s local economy.

“Raising Cane’s is just one more addition to good food at Elk Grove. We don’t have to travel far. Many businesses and restaurants are opening up bringing variety and jobs.”

-Ron Santos, Elk Grove customer and longtime resident

Raising Cane’s menu concept is what marks its popular motto. According to his website, he says, “We only have ONE LOVE: quality chicken meals!”

Interestingly, a sign that says “ONE LOVE” reiterates its simple menu and can be found above the cash register area.

To do this, chicken fingers are the only items on your menu. Guests can expect combined meals with three, four and six chicken fingers. They are: “The Box Combo; “” The 3-finger combo”, E “The Caniac Combo”all accompanied by a Texas toast, Crinkle Cut fries, cabbage salad, a drink, and of course their popular cane sauce.

It is important to note that there is a menu item that offers a slight deviation from the other options. The fourth combined meal, “The Sandwich Combo“consists of three chicken fingers placed inside a toasted bun and smeared with cane sauce, which offer customers the comforting” burger and french fries “dining experience they may desire when the craving for fast food arises.

Children’s menu and drinks

Similar to other chicken finger options, but on a smaller scale – “The children’s combo”, offers children two chicken fingers, crumpled fries, cane sauce, and a 12-ounce source drink, milk, or apple juice.

In addition, Raising Cane’s offers a variety of Coca-Cola source beverages, such as: Root Beer from Barque; Dr. Pepper and Sprite to name a few. However, its famous cold tea (with and without sugar) and fresh lemonade (of fresh lemons) are the most sought after options.


Inside, customers are immediately drawn to modern and industrial aesthetics. For example, exposed ducts line the ceilings and juxtapose with disco balls. In addition, the seats are a combination of benches and bar benches, which lend themselves well to a casual dining experience. In addition, there are nooks and crannies within the restaurant that evoke a college atmosphere as the local Elk Grove schools are represented in framed works of art on display. Comparatively, it shows a vignette of shadow boxes with souvenirs and a photo of Raising Cane founder and CEO Todd Graves with his dog, Raising Cain I, hence the name of the restaurant.

The verdict

Overall, Raising Cane offers exceptionally good quality and flavor. Her chicken tenders were the perfect blend of soft and crunchy. Despite how busy he was, everything came out hot and cool. Not only that, the staff was friendly and treated every customer with care. My only criticism is that the restaurant lacks a dessert option, but maybe that’s good for me.

Raising Cane’s opening hours are: Sunday to Wednesday from 9:00 to 02:00 and from Thursday to Saturday from 9:00 to 03:30.
