Want to partake in Buffalo's trendiest lunch today? Wahlburgers Food Truck, an extension of the restaurant Wahlburgers, founded in Boston, will serve lunch from noon to 1 p.m. Saturday at St. Benedict Catholic School (3980 Main St., Eggertsville).
Proceeds from the sale of burgers and other Wahlburgers food will benefit Catholic Elementary Schools of the Diocese of Buffalo.
Wahlburgers is owned by Paul Wahlberg, the older brother of celebrities Mark and Donnie, who are also partners in the venture. A reality show featuring the restaurant, which boasts four seasons, airs on A&E. The food truck was spotted outside Squire On Main on Friday afternoon, although food was not served.
According to a tipster, a Range Rover with the license plate WHLBRGS was parked nearby when the food truck was spotted at Main Street and Harlem Road on Friday evening. That's food for thought.
As you might guess, Wahlburgers Food Truck specializes in hamburgers, and you can find the restaurant's menu, which likely reflects the truck's, here. The brand has expanded to five states and into Canada.
If you're unfamiliar with Mark and Donnie Wahlberg, the former starred in movies such as "Boogie Nights," "The Departed," both "Ted" films and "Entourage," the TV show and the movie, while the latter was an original member of New Kids on the Block and acted in TV series like "Blue Bloods," "Boomtown" and "Band of Brothers."
