You better call Saul Goodman, because Los Pollos Hermanos is popping up in Downtown Los Angeles in a crazy standalone restaurant for two days. 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.

Los Pollos Hermanos recently popped up at SXSW in Austin, with an entire menu on display like the infamous fast food restaurant. However, they only served curly fries, water, and three dipping sauces. It seemed weird that they didn’t even serve chicken at the place, though here’s to hoping that the L.A. version will at least fry up some of that delicious chicken (hopefully without any of the, ehem, blue crystal meth).

At the Austin restaurant, actors Bob Odenkirk (who plays Saul Goodman) and Giancarlo Esposito (who plays Gus Fring) were on site hanging out with folks who stopped by for the pop-up. Expect many lines and difficult parking at the Downtown location, so it’s to best take public transit or Lyft. Better Call Saul’s second season is currently on Netflix while the third season premieres on AMC on April 10.
