WEST MONROE -- A new restaurant is coming to West Monroe and the family, made famous by A&E's hit reality TV show Duck Dynasty, is behind it.

"Aw man, this is fantastic," says Duck Commander CEO Willie Robertson.

The red carpet was rolled out at Willie's Duck Diner Wednesday, located in the heart of West Monroe's business district near Academy Sports.

"You know it's close to us, right up the road, so we wanted to be here," says Willie.

He's the man behind the name and says he's excited about the venture.

"We're passionate about food just like we are hunting, so I like to cook and we wanted to have some real Louisiana food," says Willie.

And by the looks of Wednesday's attendance, so is the community.

"This is a beautiful restaurant and I think it's going to be very successful," says West Monroe Mayor Dave Norris.

Courtney Hornsby, president of the West Monroe - West Ouachita Chamber of Commerce says "We think Willie's Duck Diner is going to be an incredible asset not only to West Monroe but the entire region."

And there's no doubt thousands of tourists will flock to the eatery.

The restaurant is filled with famous quotes and pictures from Duck Dynasty and a logo featuring Willie himself.

"I think they nailed me," says Willie.

The restaurant opens to the public Friday.
