Los Pollos Hermanos, the fictional fried chicken chain featured in TV's 'Breaking Bad' is now a real-life restaurant you can eat in - at least temporarily.


According to Ad Week, a screen-accurate pop-up version of the infamous chicken chain in has set up shop in Austin, Texas to promote the upcomning third season of 'Better Call Saul', which will see the return of drug barron Gus Fring to the franchise. If you're interested in visiting though, you better make it quick as the store will only trade for a few days.

Asked if the chain could someday become a regular fixture, Linda Schupack, AMC and Sundance TV's Executive VP of marketing, said "There are all sorts of opportunities with Los Pollos Hermanos, and as far as an actual chain of Los Pollos Hermanos, never say never."
