For many people, South by Southwest is all about free food. With that, Austin-based restaurant chain Torchy’s Tacos will bring free tacos, queso, and chips to the downtown area with a pop-up in conjunction with delivery service DoorDash. The pop-up takes place at 98 Rainey Street from Tuesday, March 12 through Thursday, March 14.

The pop-up menu features Torchy’s Trailer Park, green chile pork, and fried avocado tacos, plus chips and queso.

Dubbed the “Tiny House: home away from home,” the pop-up will be built as if it was someone’s home with an entire backyard patio setup. There will be string lights, benches, tables, yard games, and a stage for live music performances (that lineup hasn’t been released yet).

The pop-up will be open to the public, which means SXSW badges aren’t necessary. Its hours are from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.

For the pop-up, DoorDash is also waiving its delivery fees for all Torchy’s Tacos orders from all of its locations (Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado, Arkansas) after SXSW, from Monday, March 18 through Friday, March 22.
