Mark Wahlberg's Wahlburgers opens its second Michigan location today in a former Big Boy in Taylor.

The restaurant, at 21200 Penn St., starts dinner service this evening, and lunch and dinner service on April 23.

Why Taylor? Wahlberg offered some insight when he visited the location last weekend.

“We are excited to be here. It reminds me of home, [of] good hard-working people," the actor and musician told Southgate's News Herald on Saturday.

His national chain's first Michigan location opened in Greektown in 2016. A third location is in the works in Royal Oak's Beaumont Health Center at 13 Mile Road and Woodward Avenue. It's expected to open sometime in 2019.

Wahlberg also says he's looking into launching locations in Flint and Lansing.
