A new full-service family sports bar, Walk-On’s Bistreaux & Bar, will be debuting in Wesley Chapel at 11 a.m on Monday. This will be the very first Florida location for the brand located at 25372 Sierra Center Blvd. 

The menu serves up All-American menu items with a taste of Louisiana. 

The Wesley Chapel location will be locally owned and operated by Paul Hollabaugh and Jared Burnett. Both were yearning to take on a franchise after experiencing the restaurant at different locations and ultimately connected to bring Walk-On's bites to Florida. 

“We’re elated to bring the Wesley Chapel area a Walk-On’s to call their own as people continue to seek out more convenient, casual dining options with a unique ambiance, innovative menu options and unbeatable hospitality,” said Walk-On’s Founder, Brandon Landry in a recent statement. “Our Walk-On’s team could not be more pleased to grow with wonderful franchisees like Jared and Paul as we expand to 29 locations and beyond. I look forward to witnessing how the community reacts to our arrival and hope that everyone enjoys themselves.”

Guests can expect a large elevated sports bar menu as well as a heavy Louisiana cuisine influence with dishes like burgers, loaded nachos as well as Crawfish Etou-Ways and Duck and Andouille Gumbo. 

The new restaurant will employ up to 250 employees and are still looking for some last-minute positions to be filled. Those interest can visit
