Walk-On’s plans Americana location in Zachary

A Walk-On’s Bistreaux and Bar is going into Americana, the first commercial tenant that will be in the Zachary traditional neighborhood development.

The 4,500-square-foot restaurant is set to open in March. It will be part of the Villages of Americana, three mixed-use buildings off La. 64 that will serve as a gateway to the TND.

This will be the third Walk-On’s in East Baton Rouge Parish joining the original Burbank Drive location and the new Towne Center restaurant. A smaller restaurant concept, Walk-On’s Halfcourt, is set to open downtown on Third Street this fall.

The chain also has Walk-On’s locations in New Orleans and Lafayette.

“We feel that being at the front door of a community like Americana is the ideal place for us,” said Brandon Landry, co-owner and co-founder of Walk-On’s, noting the nearby YMCA and the proximity to Zachary ball parks.

Americana is a 413-acre development that will eventually include 818 single-family homes, 482,555 square feet of retail and office space and a movie theater.
