1st NY Wahlburgers restaurant to open in Coney Island

Mark, Donnie and the rest of the Wahlbergs are coming to Brooklyn.

The first New York Wahlburgers location is opening in Coney Island, and they are looking for people to come work.

Hundreds lined up Thursday for a chance at a job at the restaurant, and maybe a chance to touch a bit of fame.

The store is featured on the A&E reality show "Wahlburgers." Famous brothers Mark and Donnie Wahlberg started the family chain in 2011.

They are looking to hire 80-100 part-time and full-time employees. No experience is necessary, but management says that potential employees should have passion for working in a restaurant.

The Wahlburgers job fair will be held Friday and Saturday from 2-6 p.m. The restaurant is set to open next month.
