“You are a rich man now. You have to learn to be rich.

Being poor, everyone knows how to do it.”

Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) to Walter White (Bryan Cranston)

Walter White (Bryan Cranston) goes to a small fast food restaurant in Albuquerque to meet a potential customer for his methamphetamine…

How can we not evoke Gus Fring, the drug lord played by Giancarlo Esposito and his restaurant Los Pollos Hermanos when we talk about Breaking Bad and its spin-off Better Call Saul?

The return of Gus Fring in Better Call Saul has meant for the film crew to make up again the restaurant of the Twisters chain in Los Pollos Hermanos. Located on Isleta Boulevard, the establishment opened its doors wide to its new fictional boss to become for the second time the showcase of a tentacular criminal organization.

Mug Los Pollos Hermanos - Breaking Bad
Fantrippers’ opinion

Los Pollos Hermanos Mug

Drink your drink from a mug featuring New Mexico’s largest fried chicken restaurant franchise. Guaranteed 100% meth free.

The decorators replaced the sign to hang the one with the two smiling chickens of Los Pollos Hermanos. The interior has also undergone some improvements. Perfectly identical to the Breaking Bad version, the restaurant attracts the curious and fans of both shows. Many of them flocked to Twisters after the shoot to have their picture taken in front of the sign, which was prominently displayed inside.

Twisters has become one of the most famous fast food restaurants in pop culture. A restaurant in which it is difficult not to look out for the arrival of the impressive Gus Fring.
