Mark Wahlberg Tweets That “Wahlburgers” Is Coming To Cincinnati

It would appear Mark Wahlberg is opening a Wahlburgers in Cincinnati.

On Tuesday, the actor tweeted this picture, standing outside the former Pi Pizzeria location at the corner of 6th and Main downtown. The caption reads that the restaurant is coming soon, but no opening date has been announced.

The chain was founded by Executive Chef Paul Wahlberg, celebrity brothers Mark and Donnie, as well as other investors. Wahlburgers debuted in October 2011 in Hingham, Massachusetts.

“There is no better feeling than sitting at the table together, sharing good food, a few laughs and lots of love,” reads the Our Story section of the restaurant chain’s website. “At Wahlburgers we share a bit of that feeling every day with every guest. Our hospitality comes from the heart.”

Earlier this week, Cincinnati restaurateur Jeff Ruby tweeted a photo of himself smoking cigars with the actor. Wahlberg appears to have signed the photo, adding the message: “Best N.Y. Strip I Ever Ate!”
