Move over, Shake Shack and Five Guys-- there's a celebrity burger chain coming to town.

Wahlburgers, the burger franchise owned by actors Mark and Donnie Wahlberg and their chef brother, Paul Wahlberg, has signed a lease in Coney Island and has plans for six more locations in Manhattan, according to the New York Post's

Like any good celebrity offspring, the Boston-based restaurant and bar has its own reality show, "Wahlburgers," on A&E, which follows the behind-the-scenes drama that comes with running a family business.

If the Coney Island location, slated to open May 1, keeps with the regular menu, it will serve up everything from a "Thanksgiving Day" turkey burger (Mark's favorite) and a triple decker house burger to sweet potato tots and macaroni salad a la mama Wahlberg.

Drinks include adult frappes-- that's fancy talk for boozy milkshakes-- along with draft beers, a custom pale ale (aptly named Wahlbrewski) and hand-selected wines, margaritas and even spiked coffee.
