I ate there when returning from a drunken trip to Bourbon Street.

I might have been hungover and just needed some food in my system, but I remember it being awesome.

Is it really open?

Last week everyone was saying it was open, and I drove by it and it definitely wasn't open yet.

which is what you should do even when caine's is open...layne's is so much better. I've eaten at caine's in 3 different cities and am always happy to be able to get back to laynes

oh, they decided to close up shop, they read how much support layne's had on texags and decided it wasn't worth opening in college station

Laynes and Canes. It's like saying poop tastes better than crap. It's the same thing.

But will Raising Caines have that special sauce they serve at Laynes? I prefer chicken express though.
Aggie

It's the same type of sauce, but no where near as good as Layne's. Cain's is a lot more mayo heavy or something - it's too "slick" tasting.

They are not already open, the open sign is on but I went by the other day and they are just hiring right now. The tables are still in plastic wrap.

I am the manager at Layne's and Canes will be opening the first of June from what I have heard. Please come and support Layne's! I work nights so come on in and introduce yourself and I will be sure you leave a happy person!!!

so what are you guys planning to do to compete?
Aggie

Canes will bring in their fair share of business..I do not think that people that have been going to Laynes will ditch them for Caines..they might try Canes a time or two but will return to Laynes

Canes is in a very nice attractive building, well light ect ect...therefore yes they will attract the average Joe and his family that are driving by

however, Laynes is Aggie owned and has been a staple here in CS and with A&M for along time now...on that fact alone I dont believe Laynes business will take a big hit..they may at first with Canes being brand new and everybody wanting to check it out...

I will be down at Laynes...

If Cane's has noticeably faster service than Layne's, than that's a big selling point to me right there.

Do you know if the local Cane's franchisee went to A&M?

No point in them rushing to open now.......the semester's pretty much over and business at places like that are going to drop off considerably starting next week.

When does summer school start? Might as well shoot for opening that week.

...because Aggies do not lie, cheat, steal, or compete with each other in an open market.

That's just stupid. You have something against capitalism or a free market economy?

I have no problem whatsoever with Canes opening in CS..so dont pretend I am saying something I am not

I do have a problem with them putting their restaurant 50 yards from Laynes front door.....Bryan/College Station is more than big enough to support the 2 business...there is no reason for them to be that close

and FYI, Canes has a reputation of doing this..putting their business next to a similiar establishment and trying to run them out of business

you can look at it any way you like..I feel it is wrong

im not gonna lie, i thought that was pretty shady too. there are plenty of other places for them to go, why right next to laynes?

needless to say, i have been to canes in baton rouge and its not anything that great. laynes is much better, hell even chicken express is better than canes.

There will be hair and finger parts in every happy piece of Caine's chicken strips.

i think that if you have the money to build, the real estate that canes is located at is prime. regardless of where laynes is located

Walgreens and CVS/Eckerds do this all over the country and neither one of them seem to be hurting.
