Former Westlake football star and current New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is getting into the restaurant industry.

According to the San Antonio Express-News, Brees and his wife, Brittany, are co-owners of Walk On’s Enterprises, a company which is opening a new Louisiana-inspired restaurant in San Antonio.

The restaurant, Walk On’s Bistreaux and Bar, will open its 13th location in the Hollywood Park neighborhood. It will serve classic Cajun and Creole dishes such as a spin on crawfish etoufee. The restaurant’s website says it is also opening locations in Dallas, Houston and Tyler. Another location is already open in Lubbock. 

Brees, now 38, led Westlake High School to the Class 5A, Division II football championship in 1996.
