Wahlburgers, the ever-expanding burger chain from the famous Wahlberg brothers Mark, Donnie, and Paul, is coming to Austin. Its first location will be somewhere in downtown Austin, though there is no set address at this moment according to a rep, sometime in 2019. This would be its first Texas location.
The fast-casual burger chain is known for its burgers, with classics and specialty ones like the barbecue bacon with an avocado spread, and the Beast Two with a burger patty and pulled pork. There are also sandwiches (roasted mushroom cap, crispy haddock), fries, tater tots (including sweet potato ones), chili, mac and cheese, salads, and more. Then there are ice cream floats, frappes (boozy and non-boozy ones), sodas, beers (drafts and bottles, with an eye towards local breweries), wines, sangrias, and cocktails.
The Wahlberg brothers opened the first Wahlburgers in Massachusetts in 2011, and now operates around 30 locations across the country, with one more to come in Houston. (It is notable that Austin isn’t mentioned on Wahlburgers’ Texas page.)
The brothers even documented the expansion of Walhburgers through a reality television series of the same name on A&E, which currently has nine seasons (the most recent aired last year).
