Breaking Bad fans are in for a special treat this week with Los Pollos Hermanos pop-up restaurants in Los Angeles and New York. On March 30 and 31, a space in Downtown LA transformed into the iconic restaurant from the show, where the notorious owner Gustavo Fring specialized in fried chicken. The pop-up restaurants serve as a promotion for Better Call Saul, the spinoff series whose season three premiere is Monday, April 10.
While Gus didn’t make an appearance, everything else about the pop-up was incredibly realistic and enough to make any Breaking Bad fan want to grab a spot in line. The only catch – and slightly disappointing thing – is the restaurant had a full menu on display behind the counter, but the only things the pop-up Los Pollos Hermanos served were (free) curly fries, three dipping sauces, and water. No chicken! Still, the novelty of the experience made it worth the visit, and dozens of fans shared their photos on Instagram.
Los Pollos Hermanos will pop up in NYC on April 9 and 10 at 243 Pearl St., so East Coasters, be sure to mark your calendars. Ahead, relive the experience for yourself by checking out some of the photos of the restaurant, curly fries, and more.
