Mexican restaurant featured in ‘Breaking Bad’ experiences record sales in table-side guacamole
There has been a lot happening in the world of television dramas lately. Two popular shows are currently in the final episodes of their series. “Dexter” and “Breaking Bad” have both been around for several years, and are wrapping up the intense story-lines that have been weaved throughout their various seasons. The series are getting so intense, in fact, that last weekend a number of fans in Connecticut dialed 911 when they experienced a cable outage during the shows time slot. Fans from all over the United States, from California to Cincinnati to New York, are tuning in to AMC Sunday nights at 8PM CST to see what will happen to the characters in the final episodes of “Breaking Bad.”
Just last week, the show took the four main characters to a Mexican restaurant called Garduno’s in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The tense scene which featured a meal shared between drug king-pin Walter White (Bryan Cranston), and his DEA agent brother-in-law (Dean Norris) along with their wives, featured an overly exaggerated waiter continuously asking the group if they would like to try the restaurants famous table-side guacamole. Since the episode aired last Sunday, Garduno’s has reported a record surge in table-side guacamole orders, as well as guests asking to sit at the same table the tense scene took place.
The residents of Albuquerque are used to seeing the stars of the show around town. Garduno’s general manager, Warren Gaustad says that, “This is a local show. We always expect ‘Breaking Bad’ to be shooting somewhere around the city.” With the fifth and final season coming to a close, faithful fans are tuning in to see the fate of Walter White – and may stop along the way for some delicious guacamole.
