Wahlburgers, founded by Executive Chef Paul Wahlberg and brothers Mark and Donnie, will bring its chef-inspired burgers, sandwiches, and salads to North Carolina with its first location at 319 Fayetteville Street in downtown Raleigh. Slated to open in early 2017, the restaurant will occupy 5,470 square feet in The Hudson, formerly the old Belk department store— a hub of commerce in downtown Raleigh for more than seven decades. Undergoing a major transformation, the landmark now features a mix of restaurants, retail, and condominiums.

"We’re thrilled to be bringing Wahlburgers to the vibrant and eclectic downtown center of Raleigh,” says Rick Vanzura, CEO of Wahlburgers. “With such a dynamic group of shops, restaurants and attractions, downtown Raleigh is at the height of economic growth and we look forward to serving this diverse and thriving neighborhood.”

Located in the bustling cosmopolitan district of Fayetteville Street, Wahlburgers will deliver a dining experience built on hospitality and fun while offering a chef-inspired menu that highlights creative burgers, sandwiches, and Wahlberg family favorite dishes created with only the best and freshest ingredients. The restaurant will feature both a fast-casual counter and spacious full-service dining room with an expansive bar in addition to a small retail section with branded Wahlburgers T-shirts, hats, and more.
