Located in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Los Pollos Hermanos is a fictional fast-food chain that plays a central role in both Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul shows. From the outside, it may look like just another run-of-the-mill fast food joint, but in fact, it’s a highly prospering money-laundering business. “A business big enough that it could be listed on the NASDAQ“!

In real life, the exterior shots of Los Pollos Hermanos were filmed at a restaurant called Twisters, which doesn’t really focus on chicken – it serves up burritos and other dishes of Mexican cuisine.

4257 Isleta Boulevard’s “Twisters Burgers and Burritos” is one of Albuquerque’s most popular tourist destinations. If you’re a fan of Vince Gilligan’s work, a visit to Twisters is a must. Not only can you enjoy some great Mexican food, but also to relive some of the show’s most iconic moments.

Built in 2000, Twisters has a footprint area of 3517 square feet and an estimated floor area of 2676 square feet, and a gross floor area of 3465 square feet. It’s classified as a restaurant.

And what if something happened to the restaurant? We estimate that the replacement cost that Gus Fring (or his insurance) would have to cover is close to 1,092,384 USD.
