CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The employees at a Waffle House in Charlotte got a big surprise late Wednesday night.
“My mom waited tables and my dad tended bars -- for years! So, when I walk into a #WaffleHouse, and the staff treats me like a king, you better believe I treat them like queens!” Walhberg wrote in his Facebook post.
Wahlberg also posted a Facebook Live with the Waffle House employees.
In the video, Wahlberg hands out tickets to his New Kids on the Block performance in Charlotte on Thursday night at the Spectrum Center.
The Facebook post has since received almost 2,000 shares and 28,000 reactions.
