One of the new restaurant openings of 2018 we were most excited about is just a short drive away and blends some of our favorite things: burgers and Wahlbergs.
The Cincinnati location of Wahlburgers opened in January and offers a new destination for burgers.
The burger chain co-owned by star actor Mark Wahlberg and his brothers
— lifetime boy band heart throb Donnie Wahlberg and chef Paul Wahlberg — added a new location at the corner of 6th and Main Streets in Cincinnati, according to the Downtown Cincinnati Facebook page.
The famous Wahlberg brothers were spotted in town a few times to celebrate the new restaurant this year.
Mark Wahlberg attended a red carpet event at the restaurant at 199 E. Sixth St. on Feb. 26 to visit the new location and film for his A&E show “Wahlburgers,” which tells the story of his family’s restaurant.
Donnie Wahlberg of “Blue Bloods” and New Kids on the Block stopped by in May (and also had some Graeter’s ice cream, Cincinnati chili and visited Fiona).
Just speculating here, but New Kids on the Block will be on tour in 2019, and open the tour in Cincinnati on Thursday, May 2. We can only assume he will be stopping by Wahlburgers at some point!
According to a Facebook post, the restaurant is now open:
Speculation piqued when the namesake for Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse tweeted a photo of himself and Mark Wahlberg posing at his downtown Cincinnati restaurant on Aug. 28.
This is Wahlburgers’ second Ohio location, with a restaurant opening in Cleveland in May 2017.
Paul Wahlberg founded the chain in 2011, specializing in fresh burgers, sandwiches, sides and salads. A reality series showing a behind-the-scenes perspective of the family and their chain premiered on the A&E Network in 2014.
