I had dinner at a Cane’s in Richardson, TX, some time ago. I liked it. About a year later, the family and I ate at the location in Norman. We didn’t like it. There was a night and day difference between the two experiences, from the staff (bad in Norman), the food (burned tasting), to the restaurant (dirty).
So when a Cane’s was announced for Edmond in a former Steak and Shake, I didn’t exactly slaver at the possibilities.
We had lunch there today. It was a very good experience (so we are not 2 for 3 where Cain’s is concerned).
First of all, it was crowded! We got there about 1240 and left about an hour later. It was packed, and at first we had to sit at two two-tops. Right before we were called, we jumped onto a four-top. Ian and Erin and I got various meals with the signature chicken strips. Our meals included small texas toast, some Cain’s special sauce, slaw and fries. Raegan decided to get a chicken sandwich. Her sandwich was made of chicken strips, texas toast, and Cain’s sauce, with a piece of lettuce. So in spite of the sameness of the meals, it was all pretty good. The chicken was high quality stuff, the breading was light and tasty, and the stuff was tender and juicy. Hotter than heck, which is appropriate. The Cain’s sauce was OK, just a tiny bite to it.
Our check was $33.46. I think that is decent value for the four of us. The iced tea was excellent.
I would like to see Cain’s add a BBQ sauce for dipping also. I look forward to my next visit.
