Award-winning restaurant to host ribbon-cutting, give away free Walk-On’s for one year on Feb. 6



Tiger Town will soon be hosting game days with a taste of Louisiana when Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux makes its debut on Monday, Feb. 6.

Located at 3041 Capps Way, just a few minutes from the Auburn University campus, Walk-On’s will kick off its grand opening celebration and festivities at 10 a.m. with a ribbon-cutting hosted by its executive team and the Opelika Chamber of Commerce. To add to the excitement, the first 100 guests in line will be entered into a drawing for the chance to win free Walk-On’s for a year. The winner will be randomly selected and announced on opening day.

“It’s an incredible time and area to deliver memorable game day experiences with unique food, service and atmosphere,” said DBMC Restaurants President and Walk-On’s Franchisee Jason Gisclair. “We can’t wait to give everyone a Louisiana-style welcome on Monday and celebrate with them at their new go-to destination for watching Auburn sports moving forward.”

 Walk-On’s first Opelika restaurant marks the brand’s sixth location in Alabama and 75th systemwide. Walk-On’s Opelika will be open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to midnight.
