I'm not going to lie. I got butterflies when I was driving around West Des Moines and stumbled into the unopened Wahlburgers!!! I just relocated here from St. Louis and a bunch of us were really pulling for a Wahlburgers to open in St. Louis. I never knew all I had to do to enjoy the Wahlberg brothers' franchise was to move to Des Moines!!!
In any case, the restaurant opens today on 9/11. The restaurant is offering free meals to first responders. If you are a police officer, firefighters, or paramedic, you definitely need to get to West Des Moines and try this new restaurant out. Thank you for your service.
If you want to get a glimpse of the Wahlbergs, well, you don't have to wait long. They probably won't be at the restaurant today. However, they are planning a meet-and-greet with fans on Saturday, September 22nd at the restaurant from 5:30pm - 7pm. (You better believe I will be there, too!!!)
Walhburgers is located at 7105 Mills Civic Parkway, Suite 160, West Des Moines. Hours are 11am - 11pm Sunday - Thursday. Friday and Saturday's hours are 11am - 11pm.
