Wahlburgers is a casual restaurant and bar that was originally based in Boston — the Wahlberg trio's home town. They have now expanded to having locations in nine states, as well as in Canada.
The company is owned by chef Paul Walhberg, who shares a partnership with his brothers Donnie and Mark.
There is also a reality tv show that airs on the A&E network that is based around their business, which is currently in its eighth season. Watch the promo for the newest episode here:
