Chances are, you have probably heard of the Wahlberg name in movies (Mark Wahlberg) or on the radio (Donnie Wahlberg/New Kids On The Block). But their older brother, Paul Wahlberg, chose the path of becoming a chef. Paul was inspired by the dinners he had with his family and friends growing up, so by the age of 16, he was already working as a caterer. Before long, he would spend nine years at Bridgeman’s (Hull, MA) and move on to opening up his first restaurant, Alma Nove. Soon after, Wahlburgers made its debut in Hingham, MA.
Wahlburgers is a fun, laid-back restaurant serving up all kinds of specialty burgers, sides, salads, and desserts. With so many options and a family friendly environment, you cannot help but to find something you love at one of the 29 locations throughout the US.
We started off with a Toasted Coconut Margarita that is perfect for summer! The drink itself was not too sweet at all, and I loved the tasted coconut around the rim of the glass. They also offer up their signature Wahlbrewski if you are more into “hoppy” beers.
Next, came the main course. The Super Summer Bacon Burger includes an 8oz beef patty, smoked cheddar, bacon, bacon aioli, crispy onions, housemade roasted corn salsa, and lettuce. This burger is stacked, and the bacon aioli really made it stand out.
My personal favorite though was the O.F.D. “Originally from Dorchestah” burger. It had Swiss cheese, bacon, sautéed mushrooms, and housemade tomato jam.
What is a burger without sides? Choose between classic French Fries, Thin Crispy Onion Rings, Sweet Potato Tots, or Alma’s Macaroni Salad to complete your dinner.
The Onion Rings were perfectly crispy and if you are a sweet potato lover, the Sweet Potato Tots would be perfect for you!
If you are in the mood for dessert, the Grilled Fluffanutta is a great choice! It is basically a grilled sandwich packed with sliced banana, peanut butter, fluff, and Nutella. The peanut butter and Nutella made a wonderful combination and paired with banana slices, it makes a satisfying dessert.
Wahlburgers currently has two locations in Orlando, one in downtown and the other in Waterford Lakes.
