Denham Springs will get its first taste of Walk-On’s Bistreaux & Bar and its fresh Louisiana cuisine on March 21.
The Livingston Parish restaurant, located at 27010 Crossing Circle in the Juban Crossing shopping center, will be the third Walk-On’s in the Baton Rouge area and the eighth location statewide.
The community is celebrating with a VIP night March 19, during which proceeds from the cash bar will benefit Little League Challenger in Walker. The event is invitation-only.
“I grew up in Denham Springs and can’t tell you how excited we all are to welcome Walk-On’s to the community,” says general manager Daniel Poche, a graduate of Denham Springs High School with more than 10 years of restaurant experience. “The Cajun-inspired food and the beer and cocktail selection will give the neighborhood a unique place to gather, enjoy a delicious meal and watch the game.”
Walk-On’s menu features quality food made with the finest ingredients including Louisiana seafood and hand-pressed burgers, served in a fun “game day” atmosphere by America’s Cheerleaders. Walk-On’s was voted the “#1 Sports Bar in North America” by ESPN in 2012.
“We’re all really pleased with how beautifully the Denham Springs Walk-On’s turned out and we couldn’t be more happy for Daniel and his team,” says Brandon Landry, co-founder and owner of Baton Rouge-based Walk-On’s Enterprises. “Juban Crossing is such an exciting growth area, and we think Walk-On's is a perfect fit for the residents and businesses that are flocking to it.”
The newest restaurant opening marks the eighth Walk-On’s location—three in Baton Rouge and one each in New Orleans, Lafayette, Houma, Shreveport, and Lake Charles. Other locations are under construction in Zachary, Covington and Alexandria, as well as Lubbock and Tyler, Texas. Several additional markets across the Southern United States are likewise on the drawing board.
Last May, New Orleans Saints superstar Drew Brees and his wife, Brittany, bought into Walk-On’s Enterprises as co-owners. 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.”
The Denham Springs Walk-On’s is approximately 7,500 square feet, with seating for 250 guests. It will be open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Wednesday, and 11 a.m. to midnight Thursday through Saturday.
