Actor Mark Wahlberg made a surprise visit to the Wahlburgers location in Greektown on Saturday afternoon.

A massive crowd gathered in the area ahead of Wahlberg's stop.

He spoke to 7 Action News about a variety of topics, including bringing film incentives back to the state of Michigan and getting Amazon's second headquarters, dubbed "HQ2" in the city.

Wahlberg also took some time to speak with fans, including a young boy who had a Transformers toy.

The visit comes just a day after an announcement that the second Wahlburgers will open in Royal Oak by the end of the year.
