ORLANDO, Fla. - After a warm 'Wahlberg Welcome,' Orlando's second Wahlburgers location is officially open in Waterford Lakes Town Center.
On Thursday, Donnie Wahlberg, and the rest of the Wahlburgers crew threw one heck of a party to celebrate the opening of the new restaurant. There were plenty of food and drinks to go around as Donnie Wahlberg fans gathered to catch a glimpse of the 'New Kids on the Block' star.
The Waterford Lakes Wahlburgers location encompasses 6,700 square feet, slightly larger than the Downtown Orlando location. The restaurant includes a full bar, outdoor seating, and offers both full and quick service. The interior decor features photos and mementos celebrating the Wahlberg family's history.
The menu is created by Chef Paul who has put his own spin on Wahlberg family food favorites.
A little over a year ago, the Wahlberg brothers kicked off the opening of the first Wahlburgers location in Downtown Orlando. Now with two locations in the area, Donnie says he and his family will try to come back to the city as much as they can.
During the grand opening, Donnie presented two checks totaling $50,402 to the One Orlando Fund. The funds were raised through T-shirt sales last year after the Pulse Nightclub shooting. While the restaurant managed to raise $25,402 with their 'Orlando Strong' shirts, Donnie matched those funds with an additional $25,000.
Wahlburgers Waterford Lakes is located at 749 N. Alafaya Trail in Orlando, Florida.
