Fans of The Lion King may roar with delight to learn that Southside haven Lala’s Gorditas will pop up on Houston Street to provide Tex-Mex eats for the rest of the Broadway show's San Antonio run.

The hit musical, which booked three weeks at downtown's Majestic Theatre, is in town through Sunday, Nov. 7.

Lala's — known for its housemade, stone-ground nixtamalized masa and scratch-made gordita fillings — will set up a satellite shop at 204 E. Houston St., in the space that formerly housed Pesto Ristorante and Bella on Houston.

The pop-up will serve beef, chicken, chicharron and bean-and-cheese gorditas as well as soft drinks from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. on matinee days. It will also operate 5-8 p.m. for evening shows.

While Lala’s is serving up showtime gorditas downtown, its main location, at 1600 Roosevelt Ave., will continue offering a full menu from 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
