Our founders, Jack Warner & Brandon Landry, met in 1997 on the hardwood of LSU's Pete Maravich Assembly Center. As young boys growing up, each dreamed of playing basketball for LSU & both succeeded - it just so happened to be as walk-ons. Jack's first season with the Tigers was in 1996 with Coach Dale Brown & Brandon walked on the team the following year. It was during this time the dream for Walk-On's Bistreaux & Bar began to take shape.
Like many good ideas, the concept for Walk-On's was born on a road trip. While traveling throughout the SEC, Jack & Brandon happened to visit quite a variety of restaurants and bars. In fact, the first concept for the restaurant was literally drawn on a napkin in an airplane flying back from a game at the University of Tennessee.
Walk-On's is a culmination of many years of ideas, hopes and dreams.
