This is the third location for Walk-On’s Franchisee DBMC Restaurant LLC. DBMC has plans to expand the Walk-On’s brand into Alabama, Tennessee, Florida, Mississippi and Oklahoma in the next couple of years.

We’ve assembled a great team of 150 individuals and I’m confident that we are going to fit in perfectly here in Broussard.”
The Broussard location will feature 84 televisions and 48 beers on-tap with beer taps at three booths for guests to pour their own beer. A banquet-style room will be available for holiday parties or corporate meetings and the new restaurant will have a variety of catering options.
