Award-winning sports bistreaux to host ribbon-cutting ceremony and giveaway on Aug. 14
Mark your calendars, Thibodaux, because Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux is further expanding its footprint in its home state of Louisiana with the grand opening of a new restaurant on Aug. 14.
Located at 908 North Canal Blvd. across from Thibodaux Family Church, it will join the Houma location as the second Walk-On’s to operate along Bayou Terrebonne. Fans of any local team can rejoice as they will soon have a new go-to spot to watch their favorite sporting events on countless TVs, while enjoying unique scratch-made favorites.
An official ribbon-cutting ceremony and grand opening celebration will be held by the Walk-On’s executive team at 10:30 a.m., alongside the Thibodaux Chamber of Commerce. To add to the excitement, one of the first 100 guests in line will have a chance to win FREE Walk-On’s for a year, with the winner selected at random and announced on opening day.
“It goes without saying that as the birthplace of Walk-On’s, Louisiana is very important to the brand, so anytime we open a new location here, it feels extra special,” said President of DBMC Restaurants Jason Gisclair. “We pride ourselves on being a restaurant that is made for sports fans by sports fans, and there will be no better place in Thibodaux to catch a game while enjoying delicious Cajun and American favorites, plus a wide array of beverages.”
Once open, the new Walk-On’s in Thibodaux will serve guests Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and from 11 a.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday.
At Walk-On’s, each dish is made from scratch, using fresh ingredients to put its unique spin on traditional Cajun and Americana cuisine and bring a taste of Louisiana to every dish. The diverse menu features unique twists on game-day staples and upscale takes on Louisiana mainstays, such as Crawfish Etouffee and Chicken & Sausage Gumbo.
