Canes by Ryan Kelleher

The chicken dynasty Cane’s is superior to the fast-food fad known as Chick-fil-A. Cane’s targets quality and quantity. They have better prices, larger portions, a better atmosphere, and overall better chicken.

Cane’s focuses on the fundamentals of stellar chicken. The menu may seem small, but Cane’s is the best at what it does: chicken tenders. Chick-fil-A offers a variety of options, yet Canes reigns matchless with its crispy tenders and original tangy sauce.

The chicken tenders are the best Canes has to offer customers, and they definitely deliver. The meat is soft and rich while the skin remains crispy. The famous Cane’s sauce adds a zesty flavor to the chicken that cannot be found anywhere else.

While Chick-fil-A has a variety of sauces, customers always know what they are getting with Cane’s.
Along with better tenders, Cane’s prices are more affordable. The Box Combo consists of four large chicken tenders, fries, Texas toast, coleslaw and a drink costs $7.19. Chick-fil-A’s equivalent to Cane’s Box Combo costs $7.99 and only has four tiny chicken tenders, fries, and a drink. Cane’s simply gives buyers more bang for their buck. At Cane’s, customers receive a large box of satisfaction rather than a tiny box of disappointment.

Due to Chick-fil-A’s new arrival in Vegas, the wait times for their locations have been unbelievably long. The line took half an hour to get through while Cane’s took less than 10 minutes. The service is fast and friendly at Cane’s. With plenty of seats inside and out and very quick service, the atmosphere at Cane’s is superior to the crowded and busy Chick-fil-A.

Overall, Cane’s dominates the fast-food chicken industry. Having better chicken, sauce, and an ideal atmosphere, it’s no question which restaurant reigns supreme in the chicken fight.

Chick-fil-A by Joshua Christensen

Chick-fil-A is simply the finest fast-food chicken restaurant. It has more choices, more flavors, and more meals than the narrow-minded Cane’s. Customers are just more likely to have a better experience at Chick-fil-A.

Chick-fil-A gives customers options and more flavors. With over 30 different sandwiches and other meals to chose from, it’s more likely that everyone in a group will find something they enjoy.

Compared to Cane’s “go simple, go greasy aproach,” Chick-fil-A offers salads and healthy low-fat grilled chicken sandwiches. The grilled market salad boasts a mere 200 calories. Chick-fil-A also serves delicious, famous, hand-spun milkshakes, and other refreshingly-cool desserts.

Although Cane’s chicken might be longer, crispier, and cheaper, Chick-fil-A makes it up with a more savory flavor and a barrage of seven different sauces including Polynesian sauce, honey-mustard barbeque, and legendary Chick-fil-A sauce. These sauces also pair well with the exclusive waffle fries and heavenly chicken nuggets.

While Chick-fil-A might be slow at the moment due to its massive popularity (another sign of its superiority), Chick-fil-A has two drive-throughs. Even in a massive 40+ car line, it would take 30 minutes max to receive a Chick-fil-A order. Once the hype dies down a bit, grabbing a Chick-fil-A meal will be almost instantaneous.

Chick-fil-A is the preferred fast-food restaurant of the everyday customer. The long snaking lines prove that Chick-fil-A is worth the wait. With more choices, flavors, and meals offered, customers are more likely to find a better restaurant fit there.
