The restaurant has expanded across the country pretty quickly, thanks in part to the family behind the counter.

One brother, Donnie, didn't just join the school band as a kid. He created the most famous boy band in the world. His younger brother, Mark, didn't just take drama. He became one of the most famous actors in the world. And for Paul, well, he loved food and his family. But he wasn't satisfied cooking for just them. He wanted to cook for everyone else's family too. He was hungry for something more.


So he created Wahlburgers...


Wahlburgers is known for its delicious burgers and has a menu full of tasty sandwiches and salads. The restaurant also has a full bar with beer, wine, mixed drinks, and fun creations like the adult birthday cake ice cream shake.

Wahlburgers has been open at the West Circle Drive Hy-Vee in NW Rochester for some time now and just opened its second location inside the Crossroads Hyvee.
