We're only a few weeks away from the premiere of season three of Better Call Saul, the best show on TV about the origins of a two-bit lawyer that is also deeply educational on 'Chicago Sunroofs.' The Breaking Bad prequel is set to welcome the Chicken Man himself, Gus Fring, onto the show this year, and in his honor, you'll be able to visit Fring's fictional chicken restaurant Los Pollos Hermanos at a two day pop-up in Manhattan.
According to Eater, the event is happening April 9th and 10th at 243 Pearl Street, just in time for the Monday, April 10th premiere of Saul. Los Pollos has already popped up in Austin and LA. The menu displays rancheros plates, breakfast tacos, burritos, and burgers, but they are reportedly only serving curly fries, water, and three dipping sauces—but NOT fried chicken.
This is the second BB-related restaurant to show up in NYC, after Walter's Coffee Roastery started manufacturing cold brew in Bushwick last fall.
In season two, Saul was funnier (Hoboken Squat Cobbler!), more comfortable with its Breaking Bad roots (Mike's one man war against the Salamancas), and more tragic (everything involving Chuck and Jimmy's long-simmering family feud), and we expect it to only continue its ascent in season three—which is why it's one of our most anticipated shows of the spring. We hope Kim continues to get more of the spotlight, and we can't wait to see the long-awaited return of Fring: "Gus is more Gus than Jimmy is Saul, but he’s still got a ways to go,” Bob Odenkirk said recently. "One of the big stories of season three is him progressing to who he became in Breaking Bad."
