Everyone grows up eating chicken tenders of all shapes and sizes, but which chicken tenders reign supreme?

According to Thrillist, it's the tenders you can find at your local Raising Cane's.

The popular travel website tested 15 chicken tenders from every major fast food restaurant that serves chicken tenders.

Last on the list was Burger King.

Another beloved restaurant in Texas, Chick-fil-A made no. 4 on the list.

The website said they chose Raising Cane's because "each bite is impossibly tender, dripping clear, non-grease juices immediately after you crunch through the breading, which texturally lands somewhere in the middle ground between Church’s and Popeyes’ flaky exterior and the more batter-style thickness of Chick-fil-A. "

"When the chicken is this fresh-tasting, juicy, and tender, the batter serves as a complement rather than a star or, worse, something covering up a lesser product. The chicken here is king. And among fast-food tenders, so too is Raising Cane’s," the website said.

The full ranking is as follows:

1. Raising Cane's
2. Popeye's
3. Culver's
4. Chick-Fil-A
5. Long John Silver's
6. Church's Chicken
7. Arby's
8. McDonald's
9. Dairy Queen
10. KFC
11. Jack in the Box
12. Carl's Jr.
13. Sonic
14. Jollibee Chicken Dippers
15. Burger King
