Wahlburgers restaurant, started by famous brothers, to open new CT location at Foxwoods

Wahlburgers, the burger joint whose only Connecticut location, in Trumbull, closed in 2020, is returning to the state, coming to Foxwoods Resort Casino next summer.

The chain was founded in 2011 by actors Mark and Donnie Wahlberg and their brother, chef Paul Wahlberg, who all starred in the A&E reality show “Wahlburgers.” There are now more than 50 locations nationwide.


The locations are decorated with family memorabilia going back to the brothers’ childhood in Dorchester, Massachusetts.

The Foxwoods location will be built where Fuddruckers is now. That shop is scheduled to close in September.


It will have the standard Wahlburgers menu — burgers, sandwiches, salads, “Wahlbited” appetizers, veggie options — as well as a signature menu item unique to the casino location.

The bar will sell a full-service range of drinks including the signature Wahlbrewski, an unfiltered pale ale.

“Growing up not too far from Foxwoods Resort Casino, it is a natural fit for our team and we are excited to open a Wahlburgers at the property,” Mark Wahlberg said in a news release. “I personally am a fan of its Lake of Isles Golf course, and know that Foxwoods is a place Wahlburgers’ guests will also love to visit.”

In recent months Foxwoods has opened its 7,000-square-feet buffet-style Canopy Players’ Lounge and begun construction on Sushi By Bou.

The Trumbull location was in the Westfield Trumbull mall from 2017 to 2020.
