Better Call Saul, the spin-off of Breaking Bad is already awaiting season 4, an end is not yet in sight. As with Breaking Bad, many scenes were not shot in the studio, but actually in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. Almost all the striking locations are real buildings and can be visited from the outside.
Here an overview:


Cafe Lush

Cafe Lush can be seen right in the first episode of the first season when Lars and Cal want to pull off their accident scam on Tuco’s grandmother’s skateboard.

Jimmy’s accident with Lars and Cal

Jimmy bumps with his car around the bend and bums. The fraud attempt of Lars and Cal is quite far at the beginning of the first episode. The scene was shot in a residential area in Albuquerque.

Mrs. Salamanca’s house

After the fraud attempt of Lars and Cal they follow Tuco’s grandmother home. And this is their house:

Duke City Urgent Care

The emergency room where Jimmy brings Lars and Cal after their legs are broken. In fact, it’s a urology practice, by the way.


Loyola’s Family Restaurant

Also in the first episode of the first season: the Loyola’s Family Restaurant, where Jimmy meets the Kettleman’s.

Saul’s house in Omaha

During his time in Omaha, where he works at Cinnabon, he lives in a house that is also briefly visible. Like the Cinnabon branch, the house is also not in Omaha.

Day Spa & Nail

The Day Spa & Nail, also known as Jimmy’s office in the back room, is already known from Breaking Bad, where Jessie is offered the nail studio for sale to use the store for his money laundering. Unfortunately, the salon is in a parking lot, so there is no picture of the front in Google Street View.

Saul Goodman’s office

Although not yet in Better Call Saul have been watching, but still an absolute must for every Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad fan. The building was empty at the time of the recording (2010), meanwhile there is Sinners N Saints Bar and Grill inside. Although the outer façade looks different now, the name Saul Goodman appears on the door again and the owner seems to be attuned to fans of the series. Unfortunately the building stands on a parking lot, so there are no pictures from Google Street View. I’m trying to get a license for this photo, until then the photo can be viewed by clicking on the following placeholder on Flickr.

Vintage 423

This location can be seen in episode 2 of the first season. Jimmy has a date with a pretty woman, but can only concentrate on the bread sticks.

Courthouse

The Albuquerque courthouse where Jimmy works, appears in many different episodes. In reality, this is the Bernalillo County district administration where Albuquerque is located.

Mike’s workplace

And here is Mike’s legendary workplace, the courthouse parking lot. In fact, the parking lot is only half a mile from the “courthouse”.


The parking lot in 98 Marquette Ave NE, Albuquerque, NM, USA


Mike’s house

In the fifth episode of the first season you can finally see where Mike actually lives.

Stacy and Kaylee’s home

This is where Mike’s daughter-in-law lives with his granddaughter Kaylee.

HHM

The company headquarters of Hamlin Hamlin & McGill. In reality, various companies have their offices here, including a real estate agency called Goodman Realty Group. What a coincidence.

Chuck’s house

Jimmy’s brother’s house is also in Albuquerque.


Chuck’s home in 1600 San Cristobal Rd SW, Albuquerque, NM, USA


Chuck steals his neighbors’ newspaper

In many other series the “neighbour house” would surely be in another city. But here the house is actually directly opposite Chuck’s.

Apparently it has happened several times in the past that the newspaper is stolen by fans. This not only annoys the residents, but is also theft!


Chuck’s neighbors live in 1600 San Cristobal Rd SW, Albuquerque, NM, USA


Forest Park

Jimmy and Chuck relax in the park in the eighth episode of the first season. The park next to Chuck’s house.


Forest Park, Albuquerque, NM, USA


Calls to Nacho

Jimmy calls Nacho again and again from a public phone until the cops show up. The street actually exists, but unfortunately the pay phones were only props. But you can see the bright red hydrant hanging next to the phone box in the series.


That’s where the phone box was: 137 7th St SW, Albuquerque, NM, USA


Flashback in Chicago

In the fourth episode of the first season, Jimmy and Stevie find a man in a side street. Stevie steals the man’s watch. Like all scenes it was shot in Albuquerque and not in Chicago.


The street in 152 3rd St NW, Albuquerque, NM, USA


Two Fools Tavern

This bar is supposed to be in the series in Philadelphia, but of course it’s also in Albuquerque. Mike pretends to get drunk in this bar, while in reality he kills Hoffman and Fensky. A good stopover on the Better Call Saul tour. According to reviews, you should definitely try the Irish nachos.


The bar in 3211 Central Ave NE, Albuquerque, NM, USA


Sandpiper Crossing

The retirement home Sandpiper Crossing from the eighth episode of the first season. In fact it is a simple apartment complex.


The Sandpiper Crossing located in 6500 Montgomery Blvd NE, Albuquerque, NM, USA


The power station

The deal between Mike, Nacho and “Price” somewhere on an industrial estate. In reality, it’s a power station in Algodones, NM, about 25 miles from Albuquerque.


The power station near 1500 Pan American Central Hwy, Algodones, NM, USA


German Pub

In the series this pub is actually located in Chicago, in fact it is neither a pub, nor is the building located in Chicago. In reality, the building of the Edelweiss am Rio Grande German American Club is in Albuquerque. In Better Call Saul this is where Jimmy and Marco drink their beer in Chicago.
