The Wahlbergs — Mark, Donnie, Paul, Sleepy, Dopey, Bashful, and Doc — now have a burger restaurant on the Coney Island boardwalk. This 6,800 square foot burger joint and bar was originally slated to make its debut in May, but like most NYC restaurants, it faced some unexpected delays.
This location of the chain — the fifth, nationally — is being run by franchisee John Cestare, who also operates Big Apple Burgers, but the famous Wahlberg brothers still got some skin in the game — they're partners. The 300 seat space has a massive patio with views of the water, plus an indoor/outdoor bar. This is just one of about 60 locations of the chain that the brothers hope to open across the country in the next several years. In addition to standard California-style burgers, the menu includes chicken burgers, a haddock sandwich, and a "Thanksgiving Day" sandwich. Paul Wahlberg was on hand for the opening. Eventually, Cestare and the brothers plan to have seven locations in the NYC area.
