Chicken Fingers: Who Ripped Off Who?
#1
I tried Zaxby's and noticed that it's a place that focuses on chicken strips just like Raising Cane's does. Both restaurants even have a special sauce that is basically the same, and they sell crinkled fries, coleslaw, and toast. So, in my quest to find out who ripped off who, I found out about Layne's, Bailey's, and Guthrie's. 

Guthrie's opened in 1965, but didn't start focusing on chicken fingers until 1978.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guthrie's

Zaxby's opened in 1990.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zaxby's

Layne's opened in 1994.

Raising Cane's, probably the most famous of them all, opened in 1996. 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raising_Ca...en_Fingers

Bailey's Chicken Fingers came soon after Raising Cane's and competed directly with it near the Lousiana State University campus. Raising Cane's drove it out of business.

Funny post.

Just an FYI, I'm from CA, and have never heard of any of these places.

----------------------------

I lied!  We went to a nearby town to see a movie a few weeks ago (the fancy theater with the reclining seats), and they were either building or renovating an older building in a strip mall, and a Raising Cane's was going in.  I remember thinking, "what the heck is Raising Cane's?"

I think Zaxby's and Raising Cane's are mostly spreading in the South right now. They'll eventually get to you, but you aren't missing anything other than the sauce. They aren't on Chick-fil-a's level.

Raising Cane's only started invading Texas a few years ago along with In-N-Out.

Zaxby's is in my town (the others mentioned aren't) but it's bad - like really bad. They serve everyone on this Texas Toast soaked in artificial butter flavored oil (think what they squirt on popcorn at the movies) and I'm not sure what a person is supposed to do with it. Eat it? Uh, no. That's not going in my body lol. I think I've only ever seen 1 or 2 cars there. I can't figure out how they stay open here.

Most popular fast food here for chicken strips would be Bojangles hands down. We have a "restaurant row" here about 1/2 mile stretch and they all sell chicken strips! Hardees, Zaxby's, Bojangles, KFC, Chick-fil-A, Popeyes, McDonald's, and Cookout.

Of course, you put a bone in that chicken and it's friggin WWIII here. That's some serious fighting for bragging rights lol.

I think I made a grammatical error in my title. It should probably be "Who Ripped off Whom."

Texans and Californians are always fighting over Whataburger and In-N-Out. They're both overrated, in my opinion.  Big Grin

I much prefer Five Guys, but they would be better if they seasoned their patties.

If you ever come to the South, you need to try Raising Cane's. It's probably the best fast food restaurant we have down here.

Five Guys makes up for the lack of seasoning on the burger by over-salting their fries!  They're inedible!!  Yuck!
