Coney Wahlburgers now open!

Daily News excerpt -

Wahlburgers, the Boston-based burger chain from Wahlberg brothers singer/actor Donnie, rapper-turned-actor Mark and their chef brother Paul, has finally opened Monday on the boardwalk after months of delays.

The 6,800-square foot space at 3015 Stillwell Ave. — across the street from the original Nathan’s Famous — fell behind schedule due to a pending certificate of occupancy, which is issued by the city’s Department of Buildings.
The DOB told the Daily News last month that the chain was waiting on a construction inspection, in which the department had to check for exit signs, emergency lighting and any outstanding safety issues.
The former New Kids on the Block boy band members put all “The Right Stuff” on the menu including a BBQ Bacon Burger, beef hot dogs, tater tots and the vegetarian-friendly Portobello Mushroom Cap.
“What really drew us to this location is the rooftop. The view is just phenomenal — there's no better place to take in the sights of Coney Island while enjoying burgers and drinks with friends,” Donnie Wahlberg said in a statement.
