13 Places To Eat Chicken Fingers in Las Vegas

By Joyce Lupiani. CREATED Jul 26, 2014

Here is a list of 13 places to eat chicken fingers in Las Vegas.

1. Raising Canes
For many people, Raising Canes is THE place to go for chicken fingers. And they should be good, it's the only thing that they do. The fast-food restaurant chain even has a club for their patrons called the Caniac Club. There are about 5 to 6 thousand members in the Las Vegas area. Raising Cane's started in 1996 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and has spread rapidly across the United States. All of their chicken is fresh, never frozen, and they only use the tenderloin of the chicken breast for their fingers. There are only choices on the menu: The Box Combo, The 3-Finger Combo, The Caniac Combo and The Sandwich Combo. There is also an option for kids and several tailgate options. In addition, Raising Canes is known for its sauce. The sauce is made fresh every day and the chain's employees must sign an agreement not to reveal the ingredients of the sauce to anyone. Raising Canes also encourages its employees to give their time to the community and the restaurant often hosts community service days. And even though their employees are expected to work hard, Canes wants them to have fun too. Their motto is "One Love" and it applies to everything. Raising Cane's currently has 6 locations in Las Vegas. Two more will be opening in the upcoming months.

2. Strip N Dip Chicken Strips
The thing about this place seems to be the great customer service. A quick glance at Yelp reveals that not only do the customers believe the fried chicken strips at Strip N Dip are pretty good, they are super impressed with the service. Several reviewers also mention the selection of sauces which include wasabi cream, honey mustard, and sweet chili. If you are trying to save a few calories, you can also order the strips baked or grilled. Strip N Dip says their chicken strips are always fresh and always cooked to order.

3. Guthrie's
The chicken at Guthrie's has been described as moist and tender. It has also been described as being similar to Raising Cane's, but Guthrie's has actually been around longer. It opened in 1965 and its chicken finger recipe was born in 1968. There is only one location in Southern Nevada, which arrived in the early 1990s. Its other locations appear to be primarily in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Ohio and Tennessee. The menu is simple at Guthrie's: Chicken fingers with fries, coleslaw and toast; a bucket of chicken; a chicken sandwich; and a couple of salads. It also sells its famous sweet iced tea by the cup or the gallon. 

4. Farm Basket
Farm Basket was the first chicken company in the nation to provide drive-thru service. The Farm Basket was the also the first fast-food restaurant to introduce skinless chicken in 1980. They called it "skinny chicken" and says that it has approximately one-third less calories and cholesterol than many competitor's chicken. The Farm Basket, which only has one location on West Charleston Boulevard, offers four chicken finger baskets ranging in price from $5.99 to $21.99 and three finger meal deals.

5.
Jackson's Bar & Grill
When asked what makes the chicken fingers special at Jackson's, the answer was: "It's simple. They're tasty." Jackson's also says that their fingers are perfectly seasoned, served in huge portions and reasonably priced. Choice of sauces include mild, hot, barbecue, teriyaki, sweet chili, lemon pepper or Parmesan crusted. We have been told that if you ask real nice, Jackson's will even wrap the chicken fingers in bacon. An order is only $8.99 and you can add French fries for $1 or onion rings for $1.99.

6. Hamburger Hut
The Hamburger Hut is located on East Cheyenne Avenue in North Las Vegas. It's a small, family-run place that strives to satisfy each and every guest that walks through their doors. It has been described as the classic hole-in-the-wall restaurant with great food and many people say they have the best chicken fingers in the city and are willing to drive across town to place an order. The battered and fried chicken fingers with a tangy kick can be ordered with varying degrees of heat. The chicken fingers are served with French fries and ranch dressing Customers also rave about their catfish and hamburgers. Best of all, it is super affordable.

7. Chicken Shack
The Chicken Shack in Henderson has a seriously huge selection of sauces, including one called "damn hot," chipotle BBQ, chili/lime, garlic Parmesan, lemon pepper, Habanero honey, Jamaican jerk, and spicy ranch. For many residents of the area, the Chicken Shack is a weekly addiction. Three fingers, fries and a drink is only $6.49. If you just want an order of fingers, it is only $5.95 for an order of 5.

8. Chicago Brewing Company
If you like it hot -- really, really hot -- you should try the chicken tenders with the ghost chili pepper sauce at Chicago Brewing Company. Ghost chili peppers have been described as the hottest chili peppers in the world. There are plenty of other selections though if you don't feel like burning your mouth. They have plain tenders, mild, hot, brew BBQ, and teriyaki. The chicken tenders are made from fresh chicken, never frozen. They are doubled battered in buttermilk and seasoned flour and then cooked to perfection. The chicken tenders are served with carrots, celery and ranch dressing.

9. Crown & Anchor Pub
Even though Crown & Anchor is a British Pub famous for its fish and chips, the chicken fingers are one of their most popular menu items. They've been noted by the media as one of the top dishes that has to be tried in Las Vegas. This is because they're freshly hand-breaded in house to order, served with homemade ranch dressing and hot sauce. People rave about them. Who says a British Pub can't have American chicken fingers to go along with a delicious pint of ale or lager?

10. Four Kegs
The Four Kegs is known for its very cold beer and hot wings. However, their chicken fingers are enjoyed by many and they are special in that they can be ordered several different ways: mild, medium, hot, flamers, spicy BBQ, Southern spicy or Shrimp Scampi, which is one option you definitely aren't going to see on any other menu.

11. Blue Ox Tavern
If you are looking for chicken fingers with a unique batter, try the ones at Blue Ox Tavern. The chicken fingers start out as boneless, skinless, all-white meat chicken breasts that are hand cut and hand battered with a tempura batter. They are then cooked to a crisp golden brown. It is definitely a different method of preparation and one that fans of the chicken fingers can't stop talking about.

12. Naked City Pizza
Naked City Pizza, which now has two locations in the city, is best known for its pizza. It was even featured on The Food Network's "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives." That isn't the only thing they do well though (actually, they do everything well). Their chicken fingers, which are tossed in Frank's Red Hot Sauce, are pretty darn tasty and if you want the best of both worlds, you can combine the two. Really. We aren't kidding. The chicken finger pizza features bleu cheese, chicken fingers and mozzarella cheese. Or, try a chicken finger sub with romaine lettuce, tomato, onion and bleu cheese. You can also order a chicken finger salad with romaine lettuce, a chicken finger, tomato, onion and bleu cheese dressing. 

13. Yard House
Are you sometimes envious of your meat-eating friends when they are chowing down on a delicious plate of chicken fingers? The Yard House has a solution for you. In addition to their regular chicken strips, they also offer gardein chicken strips. The strips are served with maple Dijon and buttermilk ranch dipping sauces and French fries.
