As part of cult favorite television show Roseanne’s comeback, network ABC is recreating the show with a pop-up during South by Southwest, complete with a recreation of iconic Lanford Lunch Box. It’ll take place at the Volcom Garden at 1209 East 6th Street from Saturday, March 10 through Monday, March 12, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day.

The SXSW rendition of Lanford Lunch Box’s menu will consist of dishes from the show. This means loose-meat sandwiches, pies, coffee, and Canoga Beer (the show’s fictional brand of root beer). The rest of the pop-up will include recreations of the show’s living room, and garage, koozies, and other swag.

The character of Roseanne Conner opened the Lanford Lunch Box on the show with her family and her former boss at Rodbell’s Luncheonette. Conner sold off the restaurant in the fake-out dream final season of the show, which means they still run it.

Another television show is popping up during SXSW as well. HBO is recreating the Western theme park from Westworld somewhere outside of Austin, complete with the bar and hotel from the show.

The Roseanne reboot premieres on Tuesday, March 27.
