Brace yourselves, foodies and Wahlberg family fans alike -- a new Wahlburgers restaurant is coming just a short drive from the Gem City.
The burger chain co-owned by star actor Mark Wahlberg and his brothers -- lifetime boy band heart throb Donnie Wahlberg and chef Paul Wahlberg -- is adding a new location at the corner of 6th and Main Streets in Cincinnati, according to the Downtown Cincinnati Facebook page.
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 will be Wahlburgers’ second Ohio location, with a restaurant opening in Cleveland this past May.
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.
Wahlburgers currently has eight locations with commitments to expand to 118 nationwide. A grand opening date for the Cincinnati location has not been announced.
