Drew Brees' Restaurant Chain Eyes CLT

We need another sports bar in the QC, right?

The Charlotte Business Journal reports that New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees' company, "Walk-On’s Bistreaux & Bar says its expansion efforts over the next 12 months include the Charlotte market."

Brees and his wife, Brittany, co-own the restaurant.  How'd Drew get into this business?

"It all started after Brees noticed the sports bar on his drive to the stadium for every home game. One day, he finally stopped in.

“I felt the vibe. I felt the energy. If I were ever to open up a sports bar, this is what I would want it to be like,” Brees says."

What can we expect from this restaurant?  

  • Expect up to 100 flat-screen televisions
  • 50 beers on tap
  • A little 'taste of Louisiana - with a few cajun-flavored dishes - gumbo and the like
  • Healthy choices - like Ahi tuna salad
  • And a specialty? The "Hickory burger — the best burger in the world, Brees declared."

 

Again, expect our new 'Walk-On's Bistreaux & Bar within the next year!
