With “Better Call Saul” season three right around the corner, dropping April 10th on AMC, the show is doing some pretty serious marketing for the show. The show surprised us all with news that the bone-chilling character Gustavo Fring was returning this season via a trailer that was a commercial for the fictional restaurant “Pollos Hermanos.” Now they’ve gone a step further, erecting pop-up shop slash restaurants in Downtown Los Angeles and in New York City.
The “Pollos Hermanos” restaurant from “Breaking Bad” has a pop-up shop currently in LA and is coming soon to NYC. It’s outfitted to look exactly like the fictional franchise.

They’re even going so far as to serve actual food. Unfortunately, based on reporting via LAist, there won’t be any chicken, just curly fries and dipping sauces. And hopefully some cool “Better Call Saul” swag and some amazing Instagram photo opportunities.
You definitely want to hurry as the lines are already getting crazy. Like, really crazy.
You think this is sped up, but it’s not. If the lines are any indicator of the show’s fan base, this season is going to be huge.
Several months ago AMC teased the return of Gustavo Fring, who fans know is a bad man in the “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul” world, with this fake commercial viral video.

“Taste The Family” definitely gives off some Sweeney Todd vibes.
Hopefully Gus and Saul show up the way they did at a similar pop-up shop at SXSW this year in Austin, TX.

Fans of the show know when these two are together bad things happen. “Breaking Bad” things. Rim-shot!
They’ve spared no expense, hiring a team of servers and even a performer to rock the hell out of a chicken costume.
They’re promoting the event on Facebook as well.

If this poor guy only knew how dangerous working for Gus Fring was, he’d be out of there. Run man! Save yourself!
