Jared and Heather Burnett decided to open the sports bar in Lubbock after eating at the Baton Rouge location.

According to Business Report, Walk-On's should be opening its new Lubbock location this year.

"We've always thought that Lubbock needed a place where you can go and watch the games, and also enjoy top-notch food," said Jared Burnett, a Lubbock business owner who is signed on with the franchise. "When I first ate at Walk-On's in Baton Rouge, I knew if I ever was to own a sports bar, it would be exactly like that."

This would be the first location for Walk-On's outside of their home state of Louisiana. The restaurant began a franchising push last fall. A second Texas location is set to open in Tyler.

Walk-On's in Lubbock will be at the West End Shopping Center, located at 2630 West Loop 289. The restaurant will hold more than 280 people.

They are expecting to be opening here later this year. There will be another 120 new jobs brought to Lubbock as well.
