Even though Walk-On is technically a chain, it began in Baton Rouge in 2000 when two former LSU Basketball members realized Louisiana was missing out on large sports bars.

What better place to watch a Saints Game than at an establishment Drew Brees is a co-owner of! 

The menu claims to be Gameday with a taste of Louisiana. My favorite thing to get here is the Boom Boom Shrimp and a Large Purple Haze. 

If you need to have a party at your house, Walk-On’s also provides Away Game menus for parties as small as 10!

Watching the Saints Game in New Orleans is always fun when watching in a restaurant or Bar. But if you are insistent on watching the game at your own home- and you cut cable – there are a few service providers that allow you to stream the Saints Games to your home devices. .

There are two top providers for the New Orleans that you should use to stream the Saints Games. Depending what else you want to watch will determine if you go with Hulu+ Live TV or FuboTV to stream the NFL Season.
