'Breaking Bad' Pop-Up Restaurant, Los Pollos Hermanos, Is Missing Just One Thing

No harm, no fowl.

A famous Wendy’s commercial once asked, “Where’s the beef?”

Well, we got no beef with Los Pollos Hermanos. Unfortunately, we got no chicken, either.

Where’s the chicken?

The Los Pollos pop-up that debuted at SXSW earlier this year reportedly didn’t serve chicken. Sadly, “employees” at the “Breaking Bad”-inspired restaurant in New York City also confirmed to The Huffington Post that there was no chicken up for grabs ... only curly fries.

It’s a little disappointing considering the restaurant is called Los Pollos Hermanos, which literally translates to “The Chicken Brothers,” and boasts an elaborate menu of chicken delicacies.

Luckily, the restaurant, which popped up in NYC on Sunday and Monday in honor of the “Better Call Saul” Season 3 premiere, has everything else.

Outside, the lines wrapped around Saul’s car:

There were random Heisenbergs spotted out front:

And once inside, it was like you stepped into the world of “Breaking Bad”:

Video screens had Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito), franchise creator and secret drug lord, encouraging patrons to try the new curly fries. Despite Heisenberg’s disagreements with the aforementioned proprietor, clearly even he couldn’t resist.

And what the heck do they put on those curly fries? Fring doesn’t actually say in the promo video, but he guarantees you’ll like them.

Just me, myself and fry.

Whatever the recipe, that stuff’s addictive. And you can enjoy them with three different sauces, too. Stick to your meth-ods, dude.

Even Walt Jr. would say this is better than breakfast.
