Get your mind out of the gutter. It’s not what you think. As previously shared by Tyrell a few months ago, Mark Wahlberg is entering the burger business. The former Marky Mark is joining forces with his older brothers Paul and Donnie to open Wahlburgers. This is the brothers second venture in the culinary business. They also own and operate Alma Nove which is named after their mother- Alma Elaine.
Located at Hingham Shipyard in Boston, Wahlburgers held its grand opening Monday night. The brothers were on hand to launch the family burger joint. Also on hand to taste the Wahlbergs’ juicy beef burgers were athletes from the city’s professional teams like the Patriots, Red Sox and Bruins. On Tuesday, Wahlburgers was opened to the public.
So what you can expect from Wahlburgers’ menu? Fries, frappes, hot dogs, sweet potato tater tots, and burgers of course. One of the featured burgers, Triple Decker, is inspired by the triple stack home they grew up in. If you’re not a fan of their all-beef patties, they also have a Thanksgiving burger and salmon one to interest you. Inside, you’ll find the decor is devoted to some of Donnie and Mark’s Hollywood successes. Everything from NKOTB to movies like “The Departed” are referenced somehow at family owned joint.
Dayum, I sorta want to hightail it to Boston to taste their burgers and older brother Paul’s secret sauce. If you’re in the Boston area, head over there and try it out. Then come back here and report on it. I’ll have to live vicariously through you and take your word on what their food tastes like.
