Mark Wahlberg’s Wahlburgers restaurant to open across from Cleveland casino

CLEVELAND-- The burger chain founded by the Wahlberg brothers will be moving in across from JACK Casino in downtown Cleveland.

JACK Entertainment announced the partnership with Wahlburgers on Tuesday. This will be the burger joint's first location in Ohio. It's slated to open in early spring 2017.

Chef Paul Wahlberg and his celebrity brothers, Mark and Donnie, created Wahlburgers in 2011. The restaurant was the subject of an A&E reality show by the same name.

“Now that Cleveland is a championship city once again, it’s time for a championship burger destination in the heart of downtown,” Mark Wahlberg said in a news release on Tuesday.

The restaurant will move into a 5,200 square-foot space at the corner of Prospect and Ontario streets.

“Our Detroit restaurant has been wildly successful and we can’t wait to bring the Wahlburgers brand of great food, drinks and fun to Cleveland, as well,” said Nino Cutraro, the owner operator of Wahlburgers Detroit and Wahlburgers Cleveland.
