After a tease earlier this year about a possible Raising Cane’s opening in Hialeah’s Long John Silver location, it’s official about their imminent debut in Florida. Raising Cane’s is nearing 600 restaurant locations with Homestead, South Beach, and some spots in Orlando and Tampa.
The South Beach Raising Cane’s (351 Lincoln Road) will be a flagship store. The exact opening date is unknown, but they’re tentatively saying
February 2022, but now it’s January 10th, 2023. Fingers crossed, though, as South Floridians know that rarely do businesses down here escape unexplainable delays.
Raising Cane’s Homestead
UPDATE: Raising Cane’s in Homestead (2301 NE 8th Street) opens Tuesday, November 8th at 10 AM.
Here are some pictures I snapped on Monday, November 7th. Thanks to Raising Cane’s for inviting me in after they saw me snooping around outside.
July 13th, 2022 – Raising Cane’s in Homestead is still under construction. However, a sign is up to let everyone know they’re accepting employment applications.
Raising Cane’s South Beach
November 15th, 2021 – The restaurant has a very SoBe look and vibe created exclusively for this location. No word yet on which other Florida locations will have the classic Raising Cane’s layout or something different.

About Raising Cane’s Food
During my extensive road trips a few years back, I ate from a few Raising Cane’s in Kentucky & Ohio. We loved them, and I’m excited for them to arrive in South Florida.
The menu at Raising Cane’s is simple but effective: Chicken Fingers, Crinkle-cut Fries, buttered Texas Toast, and Coleslaw. There’s also a chicken finger sandwich.
The rug that ties the room together is their Cane’s sauce, a close cousin of the Comeback sauce. It’s served with the tenders, their sandwich, and it’s great for dunking your texas toast.
And so the chicken tender revolution continues…
