Grand Theft Auto is loaded with iconic locations. Vespucci Beach, Mount Chiliad, Grove Street, and even though we’d be reluctant to admit it, the Vanilla Unicorn – a lot of work goes into making the world of the crime simulator feel rich, alive, and an amazing place to explore without fail.
The GTA series nails it, with Los Santos especially being a great place to simply get in your car and drive to explore every nook, cranny, and corner store. Of course, some of these places are so intensely beloved that fans will stop at nothing to truly get there – and for this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, fans’ dreams came true.

Influencer team BoyWorldwide revealed their venture into creating GTA‘s Cluckin’ Bell fast food vendors in real life over the weekend, debuting the “immersive experience” in California to coincide with San Diego Comic-Con.
The “art performance” took over Smokin J’s BBQ in Poway and opened up to customers over the weekend. The restaurant offered a wide menu of familiar GTA-themed items, including bottles of Sprunk for bonus immersion. It’s a bit like if someone made a real-life version of Breaking Bad‘s Los Pollos Hermanos.
In the window of Cluckin’ Bell, there were even posters advising customers to avoid a certain Mr. Trevor Phillips, who is banned for “throwing grenades at employees, hijacking customer cars, vandalism, failure to pay for the meal.” It only ran from July 21 to 24, so you’ve sadly missed out. But, there’s one problem with the real-life Cluckin’ Bell.
