Miami is home to many sports teams, including Miami Heat, Miami Dolphins and Miami
Marlins. Not surprisingly, then, there are some die-hard sports fans in Miami. There are also
some bandwagoners—but hey, that’s okay.
No matter your level of dedication to sports, you can probably agree that going to a sports
bar is much more fun than watching the game alone at home. But, what makes a good sports bar?
Is it the number of screens? Or is it the variety of beers on tap? How about the quality of food on
the menu? We’d say all of the above.

American BBQ Feast” comes with a full slab of St. Louis-style spare ribs, a roast chicken, and a
choice of Georgia-style pulled pork or Texas-style beef brisket served alongside fries, coleslaw,

one of their eleven Angus beef burgers, their award-winning chicken wings, or their street tacos. You
can wash your meal down with their drafts, ciders or crafts.
Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux
Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux was founded by Brandon Landry and Jack Warner, a pair of walk-
ons on the Louisiana State University basketball team. They noticed that high-quality sports bars
were lacking in the area around Louisiana State University, so they decided to create their own.
The menu at Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux has a focus on seafood and traditional Cajun
cuisine. Some items include: Bayou Pasta, Sweet Chili Salmon and Cajundillas—a chipotle
tortilla with sausage, beans and rice. They also serve sweet items, such as a Kristen Kreme Bread
Pudding and beignets, a Louisiana classic.
