(press release) – Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux, a premier dining experience with a Louisiana-inspired menu and family atmosphere, brings its unique flavor to the famous Las Vegas Strip. Walk-On’s has announced the opening of its first West Coast location at Harrah’s Las Vegas Casino & Hotel, scheduled to open in early 2022.
The location will give guests a taste of Louisiana classics with a variety of dishes prepared from scratch, including Crawfish Etouffee, Duck & Andouille Gumbo, and Krispy Kreme Donut Bread Pudding, as well as game day classics like burgers and everyday entrees like salads, wraps, and more. The restaurant will also be the very first Walk-On to feature a breakfast menu, featuring current staples such as voodoo shrimp and porridge, donuts and their popular signature cocktail, Mad Mary. Over 60 TVs will cover the restaurant, making it a premier destination for sports-hungry Las Vegas game-day fans.
“It’s an exciting time for us to bring our history, our food and our culture to an iconic Las Vegas resort,” said Brandon Landry, Founder and CEO of Walk-On’s. “We’re dedicated to providing excellent service and a fun atmosphere that can be enjoyed by the whole family, and there is no better city to add to our list than the Entertainment Capital of the World.”
Walk-On’s partners with the Hash House A Go Go concept owners 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 are grateful for the opportunity to partner with Walk-On’s and help introduce the brand to a new market,” said Jim Nyberg, CEO of Hash House A Go Go. “They are a leader in the casual dining arena for years and we’re proud to be the first to deliver a breakfast menu that celebrates their signature flavor. “
“We are thrilled to welcome Walk-On’s to Harrah’s Las Vegas as its addition follows a $ 200 million resort renovation, which has upgraded everything from our rooms, casino floor, exterior and more,” said Dan Walsh, SVP and Managing Director of Harrah’s Las Vegas. “Walk-On’s offers its patrons a winning combination of a sports bar atmosphere and authentic Louisiana taste.”
This new location opening complements a successful year for Walk-On’s, including the opening of a 50th restaurant, 21 new openings amid the pandemic, and a growth capital investment from 10 Point Capital.
