GOLDEN TRIANGLE REGION, MS – COurtesy of the Daily Journal
Baton Rouge based Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux, with over a hundred locations currently under development, is working on expanding their presence in Mississippi, including at least one franchise location in Starkville. The company, which has been around since 2003, was founded by Brandon Landry and Jack Warner, both of LSU. The New Orleans Saints’ Drew Brees has since become as o-owner of the chain. In 2012, ESPN named the venue the “No. 1 Sports Bar in America.”
Walk-On’s says it offers “authentic, mouthwatering Louisiana cuisine prepared fresh in a from-scratch kitchen. That includes seafood, traditional Cajun cuisine and burgers built for two hands.” They also offer po-boys, gumbo, soup, wraps, tacos, desserts, beer, and other alcoholic beverages.
No definitive opening date has yet been set.
