The second Wahlburgers in Michigan has opened in Taylor.
The burger-focused restaurant is now open (4/23) with a full menu for lunch and dinner service. I recently had the pleasure of visiting the 21200 Penn St. location during a private celebration and appearance by actor and co-owner Mark Wahlberg.
Why Taylor? Wahlberg offered some insight on the location.
“We are excited to be here. It reminds me of home, of good hard-working people,” the actor and musician shared during his appearance.
Nino Cutraro, the Wahlburgers Midwest franchise owner also attended the opening.
I have not yet visited any other location to compare it to, but I really enjoyed the decor of this one. Check out the ceiling piece featuring movie titles in which Mark and his brothers have starred.
The Wahlburgers menu features a variety of fresh burgers, over fifteen housemade condiments, crispy haddock, seared chicken and vegetarian options. Other signature items include thin crispy onion rings, tater tots and thick creamy frappes and floats. Gluten free and vegan options are available. Wahlburgers is also a full-service bar!
The national chain’s first Michigan location opened in Greektown in 2016. And we will be seeing a third location in Royal Oak’s Beaumont Health Center at 13 Mile Road and Woodward Avenue open in 2019.
The Taylor restaurant will serve as a pilot for a program called “Personal Visitor,” which will allow any member of the Wahlberg family to pop up on any table, in any restaurant at any time through technology being installed that connects with other locations throughout the national chain.
“I’ve been adamant about being more involved with the customers,” Wahlberg said. “I can pull out my phone or an iPad and communicate with any (Wahlburgers) restaurant or every restaurant. I can be at any table or every table.”
This technology will allow family members to stop in and have dinner with their loved one through the technology, even family members in the military and out of the country.
“What a great way to have people able to connect with their friends and relatives,” Wahlberg said.
Enjoy lunch or dinner at the new Wahlburgers Taylor, Mi located at, 21200 Penn St, Taylor, MI 48180.
