Walk-On’s coming soon to Texarkana

One of Louisiana’s favorite restaurants will be opening in Texarkana soon. Baton Rouge based Walk-On’s Bistreaux and Bar announced a new location at 5209 West Park Blvd. on the Texas side of the city.

Groundbreaking happens on August 2, 2019 and is tentatively scheduled to open in early 2020. In a matter of months people in Bowie, Miller and surrounding counties will be able to enjoy Tuna Tini, Voodoo Shrimp and Krispy Kreme Donut Bread Pudding. The almost poster-sized menu consists of sports bar food done with a Louisiana flair. Eat everything from burgers to gumbo and salads (Writer’s note: the Zydeco Salad is yummy!).

According to the press release, franchisee partner Byron Mitchell says, “What I think the people in Texarkana will fall in love with, is not only the amazing food that Walk-On’s provides, but it has an atmosphere that is second to none. We hope to be the go-to restaurant in the community for all occasions.”

No matter where you sit, there’s a TV in eyesight. Most have some sort of sports programming on.

Walk-On’s Bistreaux & Bar opened their first restaurant near LSU’s Tiger Stadium in 2003. Since then, 29 locations have opened across the country and more than 100 are in development. New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is a co-owner and the founders were both walk-on players on the LSU Basketball team.
