Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is now a co-owner of Walk-Ons Sports Bistreaux & Bar, which is opening a location next year at 3702 W. University Drive in McKinney.

Prescott is the co-owner of the Baton Rouge-based brand’s Dallas-Fort Worth and Waco restaurant locations.


“Growing up in Louisiana, my appreciation for Walk-On’s not only stems from my own love of the atmosphere and Louisiana-inspired cuisine, but also its greater connection to the Dallas community,” Prescott said in a news release. “Walk-On’s remains a staple in North Texas, and I feel tremendous gratitude to be such an integral part of this growing franchise brand.”

Walk-Ons was founded in 2003 by Brandon Landry, a former walk-on basketball player at LSU. Former New Orleans Saints Quarterback Drew Brees is a co-owner of Walk-On’s Enterprises, the brand’s parent company, with Landry.

Walk-Ons serves dishes made from scratch using fresh ingredients. The menu features items with twists on game-day staples and upscale takes on Louisiana favorites, such as Crawfish Etouffee, Duck & Andouille Gumbo and Krispy Kreme Donut Bread Pudding. www.walk-ons.com
