There’s Donnie, the New Kids On The Block Wahlberg. There’s Mark, the movie star and former rapper turned Summerlin resident. But one TV show and food chain has put the another Wahlberg brother on the map: Paul, the chef behind the Wahlburgers chain of restaurants. The Las Vegas Strip already boasts a Wahlburgers location in front of Horseshoe Las Vegas… but a new location is on its way.
Later this month, the Massachusetts-based burger joint that got a starring role in the A&E series of the same name will open their second Las Vegas location. Is it in Summerlin? Henderson? Centennial Hills? Mountain’s Edge?
Nope. It’s in Mandalay Bay. Ugh.
Nothing against Mandalay Bay, but the locals deserve a location of our own! Shake Shack made it happen. Cmon Mark, get one built near your ridiculously expensive townhouse!
The Shoppes at Mandalay Place will be the home of the new five thousand square foot location. TV’s everywhere, a bar, and of course burgers a-plenty.
Their first location has been open for seven years now, and in an interview Mark Wahlberg estimates the location has welcomed a whopping four million guests! That’s a lot of beef. That said… Mark hints downtown might be the home of a third location in the future.
Wahlburger went from humble beginnings to the Las Vegas Strip and beyond…
The entire chain started only 12 years ago in the coastal city of Hingham, Massachusetts. The brothers used their Hollywood prowess to fast track the restaurant’s success with an A&E television series that lasted 10 seasons, putting the spotlight on Paul, his mom, and his famous bros. Since then the restaurant sports over 90 locations from the United States, Canada, Australia and even New Zealand.
