PHOENIX — Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux will embark on its first Valley location this January, bringing more game day atmosphere and a taste of Louisiana to Arizona.

The new restaurant will open in Mesa in January 2022 near Power Road, south of Loop 202 in Gilbert Gateway Towne Center.

The 7,500-square-foot space will feature 75 TV’s, 48 beers on tap and Louisiana-inspired cuisine, officials announced in a press release.
