Wahlburgers soft opened at 185 University Ave. on Sunday, an employee said.
Paul Wahlberg, together with his two brothers — actor-producer Mark and actor Donnie — started Wahlburgers in the Boston area in 2011. There are now locations in more than 10 states, including franchises, plus a reality show on A&E about the family-run company.

The menu includes several burgers as well as sandwiches, salads and sides. The signature burger comes with lettuce, tomato, onion, American cheese, "Paul's signature Wahl sauce" and housemade pickles. Burgers range in price from $9.25 to $12.95.
185 University was previously occupied by Sam's Chowder House, whose owners sold the business to Wahlburgers last year.
During the restaurant's soft opening phase, Wahlburgers Palo Alto will be open from 11 a.m. to about 7 p.m., an employee said. The restaurant will eventually stay open late, until midnight.
