  • Every shield must be repainted after every show.
  • When jousting, the Knights charge at speeds of approximately 15 to 20 miles per hour and reach an impact velocity speed of about 30 to 40 miles per hour.
  • Each year, 25 foals are born at Chapel Creek Ranch, where they spend two years training.
  • The horses enjoy retirement at a ranch after 15 to 20 years of performing.
  • 125,000 gallons of soup are served each year.
  • 400,000 gallons of Pepsi are consumed each year.
  • Each arena is filled with about 4,455 cubic feet of sand – about the load of 10 dump trucks.

First Wahlburgers In The Carolinas Serves Up Wahlberg Family Favorites Made With Quality Ingredients In A Casual, Family-Friendly Atmosphere

Wahlburgers, founded by Executive Chef Paul Wahlberg and actors Mark Wahlberg and Donnie Wahlberg, has opened its first restaurant in the Carolinas at Broadway at the Beach in Myrtle Beach, S.C. The brothers put their spin on Wahlberg family favorites, like Mom’s Sloppy Joe and Mac ‘n Cheese with Smoked Bacon. There are healthy, gluten-free and vegetarian options and choices for the kids. If that wasn’t enough, there are also specialty desserts like the “grilled banana fluffanutta” and frappes, floats, and Wahlcoctions.

The Broadway at the Beach restaurant has the same charm that Mark, Donnie and Paul gave the original Wahlburgers in Hingham, Mass., with a fast casual counter, full-service dining room with an expansive bar, mezzanine seating, and an outdoor patio. There is even a Wahlburgers store to pick up a T-shirt or pint glass as a way to remember the experience.

“We’re excited to bring a bit of Boston to Broadway,” said Greg Pranzo, Wahlburgers franchise owner for the Carolinas. “Mark, Donnie and Paul have created the perfect menu, from our mouth-watering burgers to our homestyle sides. The flavor combos keep people coming back.”

The Broadway at the Beach location will be open from 11 a.m. – 10 p.m.Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. – 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.

Founded by Executive Chef Paul Wahlberg, celebrity brothers Mark and Donnie and other investors, Wahlburgers debuted in October 2011 in Hingham, Massachusetts. The subject of an A&E reality show, Wahlburgers offers a fun, casual music-filled atmosphere where guests, like family, share great food, a few laughs and lots of love. While its walls celebrate the story through photos and words of the Wahlberg brothers’ life journeys from Dorchester, Mass. neighborhood kids to rising chef and international superstars, it’s the food at Wahlburgers that takes center stage.

Crafted by Chef Paul and served with heartfelt hospitality, the chef inspired menu features a variety of fresh burgers, house made condiments, crispy haddock, seared chicken and vegetarian options. Other signature items include Mom’s Sloppy Joe, thin crispy onion rings, tater tots and thick creamy frappes and floats. Gluten free options are available.

Wahlburgers’ full-service bar is a popular gathering spot offering an impressive selection of adult frappes, cocktails, wines and beers including the signature Wahlbrewski-a Harpoon Brewery custom, unfiltered Pale Ale. Dedicated to giving back, Wahlburgers is active in every community it serves. Open daily for lunch and dinner, Wahlburgers offers full-service dining, counter service, take out and a full-service bar. For locations and more information visit  wahlburgersrestaurant.com.
