Family Style Inc.’s Breaking Bad Themed Los Pollos Hermanos Virtual Restaurant to Launch Exclusively on Uber Eats

Family Style Inc., in conjunction with Sony Pictures Consumer Products, will be launching a Los Pollos Hermanos virtual restaurant, inspired by the restaurant chain owned by the infamous Gustavo Fring in the hit television series Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul. The three-year long deal will roll out exclusively on Uber Eats beginning October 24.

The Los Pollos Hermanos virtual restaurant will highlight themed items such as Pollos Tenders, Fring Fries and the ABQ Hot Chicken Sandwich: a buttermilk battered fried chicken breast served on a buttered bun with dill pickle chips and a whole grain mustard spread. It comes with a dollop of “Slaw Goodman” on the side for the perfect bite.

Los Pollos Hermanos will be available first in Los Angeles before expanding to San Francisco, Oakland, San Diego, Las Vegas, and Chicago. Uber Eats is offering one week of free delivery every month on all Los Pollos Hermanos orders during this six-month exclusive partnership.

“For the longest time, I’ve harbored the idea of a real-life Los Pollos Hermanos where Breaking Bad fans could savor Gustavo Fring’s chicken,” said Vince Gilligan, creator of Breaking Bad and co-creator of Better Call Saul. “Little did I realize this could be accomplished without building an actual brick-and-mortar restaurant. Yay, technology! Smart phones actually are good for something!”

The team at Better Call Saul, which is currently in post-production on its fifth season, was able to taste-test the full menu. “I loved this idea when I heard it, but I knew the devil was in the details — the food needed to be not just good, but great,” continued Gilligan. “I’m relieved to report that the folks at Family Style got it right: their chicken sandwich is big and crispy on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside, and it rests on one of the better brioche buns I’ve come across. It doesn’t skimp on the spices, either. Don’t worry, it won’t set your mouth on fire... but it’s got a good kick to it. I think Gus would approve.”
