Walk-On's Sports Bistreaux, a leading sports dining experience with a Louisiana-inspired menu and family friendly atmosphere, is bringing its unique flavor to the world-famous Las Vegas Strip. Today, Walk-On's announced it will open its first location on the West Coast at Harrah's Las Vegas, scheduled to open by early 2022.
The location will offer guests a taste of Louisiana classics with diverse, made-from-scratch dishes including Crawfish Etouffee, Duck & Andouille Gumbo and Krispy Kreme Donut Bread Pudding, as well as game day classics like burgers and everyday favorites like salads, wraps, and more. The restaurant will also be the first-ever Walk-On's to feature a breakfast menu, offering current staple items like Voodoo Shrimp and Grits, Beignets, and their popular signature cocktail, the Mad Mary. More than 60 TVs will canvas the restaurant, making it a go-to destination for fans on game day in sports-hungry Las Vegas.
"This is an exciting time for us to bring our story, our food, and our culture to an iconic Las Vegas resort," says Brandon Landry, Founder and CEO of Walk-On's. "We are committed to great service and a fun atmosphere that can be enjoyed by the entire family, and there is no better city to add to our roster than the entertainment capital of the world."
Walk-On's is partnering with the concept owners of Hash House A Go Go for the opening, who bring their expertise in opening successful restaurants in the Vegas market to the expanding franchise. The new franchisees will oversee this new location within Harrah's.
"We're grateful for the opportunity to partner with Walk-On's and help introduce the brand to a new market," says Jim Nyberg, CEO of Hash House A Go Go. "They've been a leader in the casual dining space for years and we're proud to be the first to offer a breakfast menu that celebrates their signature flavor."
"We are thrilled to welcome Walk-On's to Harrah's Las Vegas, as its addition comes hot on the heels of a $200 million resort renovation, which enhanced everything from our rooms, casino floor, exterior and more," says Dan Walsh, SVP and General Manager of Harrah's Las Vegas. "Walk-On's offers guests a winning combination of a sports bar atmosphere and an authentic taste of Louisiana."
This new location opening complements a successful year for Walk-On's, including a milestone 50th restaurant opening, 21 new openings amid the pandemic, and a growth equity investment from 10 Point Capital.
