Breaking Bad’s ‘Los Pollos Hermanos’ Might Turn Into a Real Restaurant

If you’re experiencing Walter White Withdrawal like the rest of the planet, and you think KFC has run its course, you may be interested to hear this news: according to Vince Gilligan, there is talk about Gus Fring’s famous fictional chain becoming a reality
