Default Los Pollos Hermanos Popup Restaurant for SXSW. Success! Better Call Saul BrBa

Does anyone know someone going to SXSW this weekend? Or someone who lives in the Austin, TX area?

I'm a HUGE Breaking Bad / Better Call Saul fan and an avid collector of show merchandise. They just announced a "Los Pollos Hermanos" Pop-Up Restaurant that is open for this entire weekend.

I want literally anything from the location as long as it is branded with Los Pollos Hermanos for the event. A menu, empty curly fries container, empty soda cups, unused napkins, any merch they might be selling, etc, etc. anything. PLEASE HELP me grow my collection

I will pay for shipping, cost, tip, etc.
Or I can even offer muling services for cons like C2E2, Wizard World Chicago, The National, GenCon, Origins.




Dates: Friday, March 10 – Sunday, March 12
Times: Friday, 3/10: 12pm-10pm; Saturday, 3/11: 11am-8pm; Sunday, 3/12: 11am-4pm
Location: 122 W. 5th Street NE corner of 5th/Colorado

Thanks again OP for posting this info! If anyone is able to help with this and would find the trip more worthwhile to gather more stuff then I am interested in the same type of things listed and would pay whatever it costs to acquire or I can help out if anything is needed from SW Celebration Orlando next month. Would be awesome to attend this, reminds me of when they turned a few 7-11's into Quick-E-Marts to promote the Simpsons movie- just more awesome!

Ok, I've been scouring the web for pics from inside and have a tad more info.

It is a popup building. Technically not a real restaurant. The only real "food" they have are the Curly Fries (which are free) . And it looks like they have Los Pollos Hermanos water cups.

What I am interested in:
The Curly Fries bag. (Fries come in a branded bag on a red basket. Eat the fries and take the bag for me. I dont mind that it is "used")

Branded water cups. Any quantity. 1? ok 5? sweet. More? epic. I'm a hoarder.

Branded stickers. They are small circle stickers.

Anything else branded with Los Pollos Hermanos

Los Pollos Hermanos "We are hiring" form. (I believe it is basically just a contest entry form for a meet n greet with Gus/Saul on Sunday. Preferably not filled out.

It sounds silly, but check ebay. When they did the gilmore girls Lukes diner pop up coffee shops people were selling the coffee cups and sleeves plus even props from the restaurants. Granted there were quite a few across the country, but you may get lucky.

YESssss! Sucess!





I am now the proud owner of this group of Los Pollos Hermanos items from an actual LPH restaurant (promotion during SWXSW for Better Call Saul)

I had literally given up hope. BUT... I got all of the loot I wanted thanks to a random person I don't know on facebook (no mutual friends either)

Wooooot! But man, these were some expensive cups. LOL
