LEDYARD, CT — Foxwoods Casino and Wahlburgers both announced that the popular eatery from the Wahlberg family will be making its way to Foxwoods late summer.
The eatery will include a “fast-casual menu filled with flavorful burgers, crispy fries and tots, and refreshing cocktails. For guests looking for daring and distinctive new dishes, it doesn’t get any more delicious than this,” Foxwoods shared on its website.
On its Facebook page, Wahlburgers wrote, “You can bet on delicious burgers, tasty tots and creamy shakes.”
This will be the only location in Connecticut for Wahlburgers, which had previously operated a restaurant at the Trumbull mall but closed it in late 2020, the Connecticut Post reported at the time. The Trumbull mall location opened in 2017. Mark Wahlberg had visited the restaurant in June 2019.
The restaurant chain, which was launched in 2011, and the Wahlberg family was the subject of an A&E reality TV show.
On the Wahlburgers website, it states that “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…”
This will be the second recent celebrity based restaurant to open at Foxwoods. This summer, celebrity chef and television personality Gordon Ramsay opened a new Hell’s Kitchen restaurant location.
The Foxwoods location is Ramsay’s sixth Hell’s Kitchen location and the first in New England.
Located in the casino’s Grand Pequot Concourse. The eatery seats nearly 260 guests, featuring a chef’s counter and 40-seat private dining room, according to Foxwoods.
