A Yelp review:

A friend from work suggested hitting up Dave's and talked them up a good game.  We stopped in and the place was fairly busy.  I can say that the food was ok, but the portions were very small (I'm ok with that) but the price was not small. The service was friendly.  I wasn't really full but did not feel like ordering dessert.

Overall a not bad eats but slightly more expensive than I expected.


Three locations in Lincoln.

The location on North 48th has a Yelp rating of 4 stars out of 5.

A Yelp review:

As good as it gets for chicken fingers.  Chicken is probably unlike any chicken finger you have had anywhere else. It took me a while to 'get' this place.  They have 1 thing.  Chicken fingers.  But, they do it right and it shows.  The chicken is fresh and hand battered right there as you order it.  No frozen pre-made chicken that's refried which is what you get at 99% of the other restaurants out there. Both fast food and nicer places all buy their chicken frozen and it's usually processed and gross.  Not Raising Canes.  They make it fresh and it tastes amazing.  Like Chicken SHOULD taste.  The dipping sauce they make is like a creamy catsup with a few mild spices added in.  Very good.  You can also get catsup and honey mustard to dip as well.  The Texas toast is amazing as well.  I'm not a fan of coleslaw so I won't judge that one.
