To celebrate the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards this evening, Google published a quick guide to some filming locations for this year’s best drama nominees. Among the highlights: Real-life Downton Abbey Highclere Castle and Twisters Burgers and Burritos, which stands in for the notorious chicken chain Los Pollos Hermanos on Breaking Bad.

(Location scouting isn’t an Emmy category, but the prize for best location management at the first annual Location Manager Awards this year went to Game of Thrones. The show films in Northern Ireland, Scotland, Malta, Morocco, Croatia, and Iceland.)

In addition to the locations Google noted, Quartz tracked down a few more by taking screenshots of street views in Google Maps:
