Chicken fingers are everywhere, but some restaurants make versions that are actually worth going back for.

Raising Cane’s, the Louisiana chain with a branch near BU, gets praise from Jenny Ondioline for its chicken fingers (not to mention its Texas toast). BroadwayBound recommends asking for honey-mustard sauce, which is not posted on the menu.

The Hill Tavern in Beacon Hill serves “far better chicken tenders than they have any reason to,” Nab says. The tenders are “big, craggy, freshly fried juicy guys with a feather light & crunchy crust.”

Hillstone has a salad with excellent chicken fingers, nsenada says. The chicken is “somewhere between tempura and ‘normal’ battered chicken, very crispy and light, and the meat is moist.”

The Druid in Inman Square makes a “pretty fabulous chicken tender,” mkfisher says. They also make a “mean fish and chips.”

Allston Diner has a “really good chicken and waffles dish with chicken fingers,” uallach says. “It comes with their sausage gravy but I prefer their barbecue sauce (also homemade).”
