  • Tourists are swarming the Albuquerque fast-food joint where Walter White does shady business on “Breaking Bad.”

“Breaking Bad” might just be the best thing that has ever happened to Albuquerque.

According to the New York Daily News, people have been flocking to the New Mexico city to look at filming locations such as Walter White’s house, the fast-food place used for Los Pollos Hermanos and even the money-laundering car wash.

Retailers also are cashing in on the whole blue crystal meth thing by selling rock candy and bath salts — real bath salts, not the drug —that look just like White’s primo contraband.

Limo drivers also dress up like Heisenberg and take you on a guided tour.

It’s the Disneyland of violent narcotics rings!
