You know everyone cares about your food when a groundbreaking gets people excited.

That's the story coming out of St. Charles where on Facebook Wahlburgers announced they're breaking ground on their new restaurant and one of the brothers Wahlberg, Donnie, is going to be in attendance.

Announced for Friday, March 22 at 10 am, the Facebook invite says "We'll be at the southwest corner of Route 38 and Randall Road in St. Charles at the Meijer parking lot!"

Rumored to open "first quarter 2019" it appears the St. Charles Wahlburgers restaurant will miss the proposed launch day but probably not by much.

This Wahlburgers location will be the closest to Rockford and it looks like it's worth the drive. Foodies and burger lovers alike have raved about Wahlburgers.

According to Google Maps, a trip to Wahlburgers is one hour and five minutes from Rockford.
