Los Pollos Hermanos where something good is always cooking!
Heard about this Pop Up location last night during one of my running events and I was instantly excited! Who here does not love Breaking Bad! The iconic Albuquerque chicken restaurant from Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul run by the notorious character Gustavo Fring is serving from noon to 10 p.m. on March 29 and 30 at 1345 E. 6th Street just around the corner from the Arts District.
I arrived on location at approximately 11:30am (March 29th) and already there was a line. Stood in line for about half an hour until I was able to go inside. The line was super fun, it was filled with tons of people in Los Pollos Hermanos tshirts and a couple of them were wearing the famous Walter White hat.
Once inside it was as if though you were inside the famous fast food joint. It had menus on the wall as well as tables to sit in. However, If you’re expecting to be able to order food off an entire menu of possible selections, don’t get too excited. All they had available were Gus Fring’s famous french fries with three dipping sauces and some water to wash them down with. That’s right, there wasn’t even any chicken available ( or meth.) But none the less it was exciting to go inside snap a few photos.
So why is this pop up location only here for two days? To help launch the new season of Better Call Saul which airs on April 10th. I wasn’t disappointed, it was a fun time. My only advice is come a bit early to look for parking and bring your camera!!
