Best Sports Bar: Walk-On’s Bistreaux and Bar

From Catalina West Apartments: 6 min. driving via 34th Street

The uber-popular franchise Walk-On’s Bistreaux and Bar was named the #1 Sports Bar in America by ESPN in 2012. It’s loved for being a real sports bar, in that there are TVs everywhere. If you want to watch a game, you can do it there easily. Even better, they have an elevated concept of bar food, that plays on the company’s Cajun roots.
