Better Call Saul fans headed to Austin for the annual pop-culture extravaganza that is SXSW can feed their love for the show in more ways than one.

Today, AMC announced a “Los Pollos Hermanos” pop-up restaurant will appear on the corner of Austin’s 5th and Colorado streets March 10-12. Breaking Bad fans know the tasty chicken shack as the legit business outpost of Giancarlo Esposito’s meth kingpin Gustavo Fring — whom producers Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould announced will make his Saul debut in the show’s third season, which premieres April 10.

In addition to sampling Gus’ delicious—and free if you don’t like ’em—new curly fries, Saul fans can log some face time with Esposito and Saul star Bob Odenkirk, too. Portlandia star Fred Armisen will moderate the “A Conversation with Bob Odenkirk” session on Sunday, March 12, in the Austin Convention Center. Then Odenkirk and Esposito will sign autographs for 50 lucky fans at the pop-up Los Pollos Hermanos later that day.

Here’s where and when to get your Saul goodness at SXSW.
