Lunch Date with My Gal Pal

Last week I met my dear friend Stephanie for lunch at Wahlburgers. Neither of us had ever been there before. As soon as we walked in, we were surrounded by New Kids on the Block memorabilia.

“Located in the Fox Valley, Wahlburgers St. Charles holds a special place in Donnie Wahlberg’s heart as it is where he and Jenny have chosen to raise their family. The 5,000 sq ft. casual restaurant and bar features an abundance of outdoor seating for alfresco dining and a one-of-a-kind immersive “Happy Place” area. The whimsical and social media-friendly corner of the restaurant includes a fun-filled and family-oriented pop-up art exhibit for guests to pose in front of for photos.”

What did we have for lunch, you ask?

A beef patty served between thick-cut bread & grilled with government cheese, bacon, caramelized onions, pickles, & housemade mustard sauce
Bacon Mac n’ Cheess
Onion Rings

We each had the melt and shared our sides.

I took more than ½ of my food home, and Michael enjoyed it the next day for lunch.

Yes, the food was yummy. But the best part was the fellowship with my dear friend Stephanie. When we are together, it is like no time has passed. We pick up right where we left off, whether our last conversation was in person or by text.
