‘America’s Best Sports Bar’ To Break Ground on 1st San Antonio Restaurant

Ceremony for Walk-On’s Bistreaux & Bar scheduled for Wednesday in Hollywood Park

January 10, 2017 // Franchising.com // SAN ANTONIO, TX – The Alamo City will soon be home to a unique, family-friendly sports bar co-owned by NFL star Drew Brees.

Baton Rouge-based Walk-On’s Bistreaux & Bar is hosting a special groundbreaking ceremony for its first San Antonio-area restaurant this Wednesday, Jan. 11. Representatives of Walk-On’s Enterprises and the South Texas franchisee group will join with local officials in turning over earth to mark the momentous occasion at 1004 Pantheon Way in Hollywood Park. The ceremony will begin at 3 p.m. with a reception featuring several of Walk-On’s most popular menu items to follow.

“I’m thrilled not just to bring this amazing restaurant to San Antonio, but to have the honor of opening the first Walk-On’s in South Texas,” said franchisee Moussa Haidar. “The first time I stepped into a Walk-On’s, I knew it was exactly the kind of restaurant I had always wanted to have. Everything about it is superior to the typical sports bar, from the incredible food and wide array of cocktails and craft beers, to the family-friendly sports atmosphere and commitment to outstanding customer service.”

Walk-On’s is renowned for its signature menu featuring a taste of Louisiana served up in a game-day atmosphere by America’s Cheerleaders.

The 8,500-square-foot family-friendly restaurant is projected to open this summer, adding roughly 200 good new jobs to the local economy. It will be the third Walk-On’s in Texas and the 15th location nationwide.

“We’ve made Texas a priority expansion market ever since we started franchising, and we feel very fortunate that a successful restaurateur like Moussa is such a huge fan of our brand,” said Brandon Landry, co-founder of Walk-On’s Enterprises. “We share his excitement about introducing Walk-On’s to South Texas and, specifically, to the good people of San Antonio.”

Baton Rouge-based Walk-On’s – voted “Best Sports Bar in North America” by ESPN – now has 10 locations: three in Baton Rouge, one each in New Orleans, Lafayette, Houma, Shreveport, Lake Charles and Bossier City, La., and one in Lubbock, Texas. More than 50 franchised locations are currently in the pipeline for Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas. Several additional markets across the Southern United States are likewise on the drawing board.

New Orleans Saints superstar Drew Brees and his wife, Brittany, bought into Walk-On’s Enterprises as co-owners in May 2015. Drew pointed out that Walk-On’s is “a great place to bring my family, teammates and business colleagues” and that they were excited to help “expand the brand across the nation.”
