Is Breaking Bad's Los Pollos Hermanos A Real Restaurant?
By NAOMI KENNEDY
Los Pollos Hermanos, the fried chicken-serving restaurant chain, as seen on AMC’s hit series “Breaking Bad” seems like a perfect fast-food joint and even has a functional website. However — despite looking incredibly realistic — there is a reminder at the bottom of its homepage confirming that it's "for entertainment purposes" only.
Although none of the New Mexican chain's 14 locations is actually open for business, there is still a way to enjoy a meal wrapped up in the iconic packaging of the Los Pollos Hermanos logo. Sony Pictures Consumer Products teamed up with the virtual restaurant company Family Kitchen, Inc. and Uber Eats to offer some delivery-only meals from the faux fast-food joint for a limited time.
The Los Pollos Hermanos virtual restaurants certainly sound like a fun and delicious meal, but you may find it slightly disappointing that there is no brick-and-mortar version to visit — but not for long. The Los Pollos Hermanos restaurant is an actual restaurant in Albuquerque, New Mexico called Twisters that is open all day and offers a wide range of food items.
The restaurant encourages patrons to "sit in the same booth Walter White once did, pose for some photos, and try a South Valley burrito smothered in green chile and our signature curly fries", per The Twisters. They also transformed into the Los Pollos Hermanos alter-ego back in 2018 to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of "Breaking Bad".
