Nine months later, we have the answers: at the corner of Prospect and Ontario across from the Jack Cleveland Casino in the early spring of 2017.
"Now that Cleveland is a championship city once again, it's time for a championship burger destination in the heart of downtown, " Mark Wahlberg said in a release. The actor ("Transformers: Age of Extinction") founded the chain with his brothers, singer Donnie of New Kids on the Block fame and Paul, a chef, in 2011.
The Cleveland Wahlburgers will house a restaurant and bar in a 5, 200-square foot storefront attached to the casino's parking garage. The owner also operates a location at Jack owner Dan Gilbert's casino in Detroit.
"Our Detroit restaurant has been wildly successful and we can't wait to bring the Wahlburgers brand of great food, drinks and fun to Cleveland, as well, " Nino Cutraro said.
Wahlburgers is a fast-casual concept that serves gourmet burgers, fries and tots with a dozen locations in seven states. The Emmy-nominated reality show on A&E that bares its name premiered in 2014 and is currently in its seventh season.
