    The Wahlberg family’s famed Wahlburgers is coming to Las Vegas in late 2015 with its restaurant opening at Grand Bazaar Shops at Bally’s Las Vegas. The popular, fast-casual burger restaurant founded by brothers Mark, Donnie and Paul Wahlberg and subject of A&E Network’s Emmy-nominated reality show, will feature gourmet burgers and specialty drinks.

    The new 5,000 square-foot restaurant, bar and retail store will be right in the middle of all the action adjacent to the newly opened Starbucks. Wahlburgers restaurant will be situated at the tip of the center’s Grand Allée, which highlights a myriad of boutique shops and open-air walkways and will be within steps from the main pedestrian entrance to Bally’s Las Vegas. A retail shop, located on the Strip sidewalk, will open prior to the restaurant and offer branded Wahlburgers merchandise, including T-shirts, key chains, shot glasses and more.

    That Wahlburgers opening is slower than the second coming of Christ. It was originally supposed to be open before my May trip.

    maybe not...my friend works right across at fuel bar, he said a while back that wahlburgers finally signed a contract and should be open in 2-3 months...as of right now i believe that spot is occupied by the new fuel bar garage with beer pong, cornhole, a bar , pool table ect

    Should be pretty successful. There are a ton of burger places on the Strip but this location has a lot of foot traffic, and the celebrity connection will probably bring some people in the doors.

    And like the other "gourmet/celebrity" burger places it will likely be a good burger but way overpriced. I went to BurGR at PH and it was a good burger (but nothing spectacular by any means) and for a burger and fries (which were extra) and 2 beers it was $42.

    if they ever do get to moving in, foot traffic is not great, the location is way in the back of the shops to the right...thats why fuel bar has a satellite bar that they setup on the strip and direct people back.

    What's all the fuss about. We have one close by... Average burger at best.

    We had bobby flays at Manderin and his burger better by far.

    talked to my friend at fuel bar, he said wahlburger is still coming but as of right now, fuel bar garage has the space for a few months until they decide to come in and start building

    It can't do any worse than any of the other places in that "mall". It's a dead zone in there. Horrible waste of space.

    I think this kind of celebrity joint will do better than celebrity chef joints. NKOTB fans are crazy and they're going to flock there (I can say that bc after this baby comes, Ill be going there) Also all of Marks fans and then the new reality show followers. Ive heard ppl going to Boston and waiting almost 2 hrs at the original one, still.
