A Hollywood star co-founded restaurant is coming to The Star in Frisco.

Wahlburgers, a casual dining restaurant concept, is opening its first Texas location at the Dallas Cowboys World Corporate Headquarters and training facility.

Two-time Oscar nominee Mark Wahlberg announced Wahlburgers' expansion to Texas during a recent Dallas Cowboys session that Wahlberg attended.

"We are all huge sports fans and to be able to open our first Texas location in tandem with a legendary organization like the Dallas Cowboys is icing on the cake,” Mark Wahlberg said in a press release.

There are currently 32 Wahlburgers locations in 18 U.S. states, Canda and the U.K.

The eatery special offerings – which, guests in North Texas can soon enjoy – includes ground beef burgers, Sloppy Joe's, tater tots and frappes.

The newest restaurant in Frisco is scheduled to open this fall.

“On behalf of the Jones family, we are excited to team up with the Wahlbergs and bring their successful Wahlburgers restaurant to The Star in Frisco,” said Dallas Cowboys COO Stephen Jones. “Working together with family to create a solid business with strong values is something both the Joneses and Wahlbergs have in common, and we’re thrilled that our fans and visitors alike will be able to enjoy everything Wahlburgers brings to our campus.”

The Wahlburgers also has its own reality TV show with A&E Network.
