Critic's Review

Walk-on's, the sports bar with the dumbest name of all sports bars and partially owned by Drew Brees, has opened in Harrah's. I was walking the boulevard and decided to stop in and check it out.

From the casino floor, it's virtually impossible to find. There are arrow signs telling you what direction to take, but they just end with no restaurant to be found. I had to ask someone; you have to take the escalator to the 2nd floor. No sign by the escalator.

Walk down a bit and you'll eventually find it. It was pretty dead at lunch time so I'm not the only one who had trouble finding it.

They have 4 big screens in the rear; it's not clear if that's going to be 1 huge screen for the main game or if they'll keep it at 4 screens showing the same thing. I think they still have some kinks to work out here.

I took a seat at the bar; I wasn't having a full meal. Lots of TVs with not much on. Tiger playing golf was the big event today.

They have a lot of different beers on tap; but I wasn't drinking either.

I ordered a cup of Gumbo, because that's how you measure a restaurant claiming to serve Louisiana fare.

Music here is unfortunate; I don't see how Sia, OneRepulic and Gorgon City Feat fit the sports bar or Cajun themes.

One good thing about gumbo is that it's pre-made, so there's no waiting. It came out right away.

Not very colorful; they don't even bother with the green onions here, which are a key ingredient. Take a look at the pics at the end of this post for a gumbo I got at another location.

The gumbo was "ok", not very spicy or interesting. I was offered hot sauce, but they only had Tabasco, which does nothing but ruin decent food. They need to get some better hot sauce.

Conclusion

Considering this is Harrah's, Walk-Ons is a nice addition to a place that has some other pretty good food venues. The food here isn't life changing, but it's a better place to watch a game than the sport book.

They also serve breakfast here; it's always good to have more breakfast options when staying in a hotel for a few days.

Previous Musings

I've been to a Walk-Ons before; I had Gumbo and a chicken sandwich.

I started with the gumbo.

While it looked like a gumbo and had all of the correct ingredients; it didn't taste like gumbo. It didn't have that roux taste. Disappointing, but edible.

I also had the black jack chicken, sort of like a big mac with chicken and bacon.

The sandwich was excellent; bursting with flavor. And it was a big sandwich.

Say what you want about Harrah's the Resort; they now have some pretty interesting restaurants; with Ruth's Chris and Walk-ons as headliners.
