FINALLY! Superstar and Illinois resident Donnie Wahlberg is bringing his family's burger restaurant, Wahlburgers, to our great state, opening their first Illinois location in St. Charles.
Earlier this week, the St. Charles city council unanimously approved plans for constructing the restaurant and bar on the city's west side.
"This is a real honor for me and my family," said Wahlberg, who lives in St. Charles with his wife, celebrity Jenny McCarthy, and their sons. "We really want to do more than just make a big splash. We want to bring jobs, bring resources and finances to the community (and) to reinvest in the community."
Wahlburgers will be one of three new retail buildings on a three-acre Meijer outlet at Route 38 and Randall Road.
