sxmmartini lol. Of that list I'd be happy with Krispy Kreme but they didn't make it here in the northeast so doubt they would in SXM. I remember when I saw the first burger place near the dock in P'burg. I said there goes the island then I thought, why shouldn't the locals have that to enjoy

Good One Sxmmartini!! With all the amazing restaurants, cafes and patisseries on the island, how unfortunate that the United State's contribution to St Martin's culinary experience are junk food chains. Poisoning those who dare to enter and reminding the others who are smart enough, how wonderful the rest of the island is.

Pollos Hermanos The name gives me a grin, but they will have to be good once the joke wears off.

Many folks here can't afford to dine at the places you love. The place is packed with mostly locals all the time. I hear the food is quite good and plan to give it a try one of these days. Until this post, I didn't know it was a chain as I never heard of it.

How does Pollos Hermanos equate to all those chains? As far as I know it is a one of a kind.

I am glad some of you saw the humor in my post. I checked out the menu online and I like fast food. There is a Family Pack on the menu: Whole Chicken, rack of ribs, one steak, six shrimps for $ 60/Naf 108 comes with 5 sides and four sodas. Perfect for a party!

I dont think it is a chain in real life. I thinks its a one of a kind at least on SXM.

On TV, thereis a fictional chicken chain in the US Southwest called Los Pollos Hermanos (the chicken brothers) on the AMC series Breaking Bad that ran 5 seasons and the owner is a central figure in the show.

No there is one in NYC and they were pop up restaurants in LA to promote the T.V. series...

Cool, I see the humor, the menu actually sounds good and I plan on checking it out and getting some pictures.

Strange this is a pop up restaurant... how in the world did it open in SXM?

On August 20, 21, and 22, 2018 Better Call Saul fans (or just hungry fried chicken enthusiasts) in New York and Los Angeles can order fried chicken and curly fries from Gus Fring's (Giancarlo Esposito) family fast food restaurant Los Pollos Hermanos.

Last April, AMC commissioned Los Pollos Hermanos pop up restaurants in Austin for SXSW and New York. Sadly, fried chicken was not available then (one would have to imagine that it's a logistical nightmare for a cable network to get licensure to handle raw fowl for a one-day publicity stunt). Thankfully it is this time around.

Sxmmartini - not food but we always used to get a chuckle over the Midass Muffler shop that used to be at the base of the hill as you turned up it to head over the hill and into town.

Midass Muffler was funny... Seven Alive as well.

What the heck is a pop up restaurant? Had a cocktail with someone who had lunch there today. He had a chicken breast sandwich that was huge and delicious!

I thought they were open in June? Or maybe just working on it? Next door to the nail salon that Elaine recommended.
