There are so many fabulous and creative burger spots all around Georgia and it's sometimes super hard to decide where to go when you're craving the savory treat. If you're in search for a quality, juicy burger assembled with flavorful toppings, you'll be happy to know Wahlburger's is opening new Georgia locations in Midtown later this year.
What do you get when you combine an A-list actor, a renowned hip-hop star and an executive chef? The (not-so-obvious) answer is Wahlburgers, a mouth-watering burger joint that creates a lot of buzz. Three Wahlberg brothers, two of which are former dreamy hip-hop stars in Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch (Mark and Donnie), know what's up when it comes to a good burger. Chef Paul loves to cook for his family and decided to expand his passion to share with the public, so he and his bros came together to bring you Wahlburgers.
Georgia is lucky to be one of the 19 states that Wahlburgers calls home, with one location at The Battery and five others on the way. The 7,000 square-foot Midtown location is currently underway at 218 Peachtree St. NW. There are no concrete details on an opening date, but there is talk that it could open as early as next month. This location will have a massive patio making it the perfect night out indulging in good food and drinks with friends, al fresca style.
When viewing the menu, you will be pleasantly surprised to find some deliciously unique creations including: housemade "Mom's Sloppy Joe" smothered on thick-cut grilled bread finished with crispy onions, Paul's housemade signature wahl sauce and cheese sauce, and Mark's fave, the Thanksgiving Turkey Burger with stuffing, mayo, housemade orange-cranberry sauce and roasted butternut squash (just in time for fall). And you won't spend a fortune because all the burgers are less than $10.
The adult frappes are also a must. With crazy sweet and boozy creations like the Fluffanuttahh with vanilla ice cream, marshmallow vodka, créme de banana, peanut butter, marshmallow fluff and whipped cream, you're in for a drink like you've never had before.
According to AJC, a franchise agreement states that there will be at total of six Wahlburgers in Georgia, so be on the lookout for new ones popping up in the future, including a potential spot in Savannah and Duluth.
Narcity spotted Mark outside the Wahlburgers location at The Battery last year, so you may be lucky to catch him or his bros if you make this one of your regular hangout spots. We also know where other ATL celebs like to hangout, you know, just in case.
