Will be honest went there for the crystal meth candy and the guy knew it. Got what I wanted plus a free photo shoot with Walter and Jessie. Very hospitable and was a great tourist guide. Friendly and simply happy for us to be there.

Found this while exploring Old Town and had a blast. Got our fix of "Blue Meth" to bring back as gifts and also grabbed a "Cooking" apron. Very fun place.

Some times they have a Heisenberg look-alike and you can have you photo taken in front of a 'Los Pollos Hermanos' poster. You can also stock up on 'Crystal (sugar) Met' packets! The range of confectionary is outstanding.
