DENHAM SPRINGS, LA (WAFB) -

A big name sports bar is making its way to Livingston Parish.

Leaders helped break ground Friday morning on Walk-Ons Bistreaux & Bar's newest location.

Soon, the folks in Denham Springs will only have to travel to Juban Crossing to experience a piece of the "best sports bar in North America," according to ESPN. 

For the owners of the restaurant, it appears the decision to expand the brand into Livingston Parish was a no-brainer. 

"People are asking us, ‘Why are we considering Juban Crossing?’” Brandon Landry, founder and co-owner of Walk-Ons, said. “I mean, just look at it. When you look at the parish and what things are going on around here and the population I think you said is supposed to double in the next 15 to 20 years, that's just, that’s crazy and our type of concept. What we kind of provide, I think fits perfectly for this emerging market out here."

The folks at Walk-Ons are hoping construction will be wrapped up in time to open in the first part of 2016.
