On the Wahlburgers episode “Boardwalk Burger Empire,” Donnie Wahlberg travels to New York to visit the Wahlburgers restaurant at Coney Island. “Who could’ve predicted that we would have to close down one of our favorite locations due to unexpected issues,” says Donnie as he walks in. The Wahlbergs promise the employees there that they will get the restaurant re-opened. One of the employees who has been there from the beginning, Nelcia, has seen all the mistakes and still wants to be a part of the family.
Donnie says, “The best way to pay her back is to make that location work.” He also offers to pay her rent for the next six months, “so we can have you here full time.” Upon hearing the news, Nelcia breaks down in tears. She’s later seen cheering the rest of the Wahlburgers employees on. The Coney Island location has re-opened. Wahlburgers airs Wednesdays at 10pm on A&E.
