Breaking Bad Experience

Updated: Dec 3, 2023

This self-guided Experience highlights some of the most iconic destinations featured in Breaking Bad & Better Call Saul!

  1. Java Joes Start your day at "Tuco’s headquarter’s" - Java Joe’s is actually a groovy coffee shop where you can get excellent local coffee, a killer breakfast or pastries and enjoy live music. You'll recognize the mural on the side of the building from the show.

  2. Crossroads Motel You never know who you are going to see or meet when you stay at Crossroads Motel. The Crossroads Motel is family-owned and operated. This infamous location has also appeared in many episodes of AMC's 'Breaking Bad', and has one of the most recognized signs in the entire series. During the course of the series the motel became synonymous with the character, Wendy who is a prostitute, living and working at the motel. The "Palace", as it is also referred to, first appeared in Season one.

  3. Tohajiilee Indian Reservation To'hajiilee is the Native American reservation where Walt buried his money and where he and Jesse first cooked meth in the Pilot. To'hajiilee is a noncontiguous section of the Navajo Indian Reservation, located in New Mexico.

  4. Octopus Carwash (Now Mister Car Wash) This is the car wash where Walter White of "Breaking Bad" works in the early episodes of the series -- the same car wash that his wife Skyler later purchases to help launder their drug money. Great place to wash your car after visiting To'hajiilee Indian Reservation!

  5. Twisters – Los Pollos Hermanos This Twisters served as the set of the famous Los Pollos Hermanos in Breaking Bad. We encourage you to sit in the same booth Walter White once did, pose for some photos, and try a South Valley burrito smothered in green chile and their signature curly fries.

  6. The Candy Lady Breaking Bad Candy is the instantly recognizable blue ice candy that revolutionized the Albuquerque Market: This is an exclusive Candy Lady product, modeled after the show prop that we were asked to produce for Breaking Bad (seasons one and two).
