EDINBURG, TEXAS (Aug. 28, 2018) – The City of Edinburg and the Edinburg Chamber of Commerce held a groundbreaking ceremony for Walk-On’s Bistreaux and Bar.
“We feel very confident this is the first of many [restaurants]. We feel that we’re going to be utilizing taxpayer money in a sense to bring a property tax base, sales tax base and job creation,” said Councilmember and Edinburg Economic Development Corporation President Gilbert Enriquez. “We can’t wait for the citizens of Edinburg to walk into the restaurant and enjoy the atmosphere and the food.
The Edinburg location of Walk-On’s is the first in the Rio Grande Valley. The restaurant will feature Louisiana cuisine including seafood, traditional Cajun cuisine, and hamburgers.
Co-owner and CEO Brandon Landry said, “We’re very excited about bringing Walk-On’s to Edinburg, Texas.”
Walk-On’s was voted the No. 1 Sports Bar in America by ESPN in 2012. The restaurant franchise is co-owned by Landry and NFL All-Pro Quarterback, Drew Brees.
The restaurant will be located at 415 W. Trenton Rd.
