Our mission is to deliver a memorable game day experience with a taste of Louisiana for guests of all ages, created by our great teammates and all-American Cheerleaders.


A walk-on is an athlete trying out for a team who has not been drafted, invited, scouted, awarded a scholarship… you get the picture.

Brandon Landry and Jack Warner, our founders and walk-ons for the LSU basketball team, played proudly for the Tigers, driven by the team camaraderie and their true love of the game.

During their time on the team, Brandon and Jack had amazing opportunities to travel and visit the best of the best in restaurants and sports bars around the country. While they were lucky enough to be living one dream of playing LSU basketball, they were also beginning to create a new dream.

In 2001, on a plane ride home from a game at the University of Tennessee, the floor plan for Walk-On’s Bistreaux & Bar was drawn on the back of a napkin. Brandon and Jack submitted their business plan for Walk-On’s to one of their professors for a class project.

The professor gave them a C, saying their idea needed some work, which only motivated Brandon and Jack even more. After six banks denied them a loan for Walk-On’s, the seventh bank finally agreed to help turn their dream into reality. Throughout the process of opening Walk-On’s, they discovered their ultimate non-negotiable they still abide by today:
never stop trying!

During their years on the bench, Brandon and Jack learned that being a walk-on was a privilege, and even though they didn’t play much, they were just as important to the team as the star players. Legendary Coach Dale Brown taught them that everyone on a TEAM has one common goal: To Win! Brandon and Jack took the lessons learned from the hardwood floors
and brought them to life on the floors of their restaurants and bars. Today, Walk-On’s Bistreaux & Bar’s vision is TO WIN!
Everywhere. Every way. Everyone. Every day.

Brandon, Jack and the entire Walk-On’s team work hard every day to ensure every customer has a winning experience
with great food, beverages, service and atmosphere. Our entire team thanks you for the support.
Cheers to you and your dream!

In 2012, Walk-On’s Bistreaux and Bar was named the #1 Sports Bar in America by ESPN.

In 2015, Entrepreneur, Philanthropist and All-Pro Quarterback Drew Brees joined the Walk-On’s Team as a partner.


At Walk-On’s Bistreaux and Bar, we embrace our Louisiana heritage and humble beginnings. “Southern Hospitality” is a cornerstone of our Louisiana heritage. Sports and great food are in our blood. When you ask people what they remember most about a visit to Louisiana, you’re guaranteed to hear words like fun, good time, party and great food!  Our restaurants focus on delivering a Louisiana gameday experience served by our All American Team.  Find out more about a Walk-On’s near you below…
