Eater Vegas first broke the news that Wahlburgers was coming to the Las Vegas Strip and headed to the almost completed Grand Bazaar Shops in front of the Bally's resort. And now Donnie Wahlberg and his chef brother Paul show you exactly where they will be serving their "O.F.D. (Originally From Dorchester)" burger and "Alma's Favorite Chicken Sandwich."

The A&E cable network has released a preview of episode four of the mega-hit Wahlburgers reality TV show, chronicling the family and professional life floating around their Hingham, Mass., restaurant. In the trailer, titled "Viva Paul Vegas," Donnie and his brother take a tour of their under construction Bally's location and clash over whose face should be on the signage.
Located on the first floor, below the fifth local restaurant for Nacho Daddy, Wahlburgers will be located on the southeast side of the Grand Bazaar retail experiment next to another local dining favorite SkinnyFats.
The Grand Bazaar Shops eventually hopes to host 120 retail tenants, with most squeezed into 150- to 300-square-foot spaces with more prominent brand names occupying 1,000-2,400 square feet. Other dining options on the way include San Francisco's Katana-Ya, Jimmy's Seaside Fries, Fuel Up flair bar and Nazar Turkish Ice Cream.
The 2.6 acre Grand Bazaar Shops will officially debut on Feb. 26, but have yet to admit Wahlburgers, SkinnnyFats or even Nacho Daddy are future tenants, or reveal if the restaurants will be ready to debut on that date.
However, Wahlburgers fans should note in their diary that Donnie Wahlberg is confirmed to be in Las Vegas with his fellow New Kids on The Block on May 1 with a performance booked at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.
