Comcast's Xfinity is serving up tantalizing pop-culture inspired meals at San Diego's Comic-Con this week, at a pop-up diner paying homage to "Game of Thrones," "Orange Is the New Black" and Marvel's "Luke Cage."

Comic-con attendees can get free "TV Dinners" inspired by the shows, created by YouTube celebrity chef Byron Talbott. The meals feature dishes like Genghis Connie's chow mein from "Luke Cage," the Jolly Rancher weapon that Piper used to frame fellow inmate Stella Carlin in OITB and Jerky of the Beast, inspired by the wild boar that ultimately killed GoT character King Robert Baratheon.

The diner is serving Comic-con goers from 12pm to 8pm today through July 22 at the Petco Interactive Zone at 100 Park Boulevard.

Comcast's agency Goodby, Silverstein & Partners helped create the restaurant. "Xfinity gives people all their entertainment choices in one place and we wanted to create a fun experience for fans that reflects our role as an aggregator of great content," said Nader Ali-Hassan, executive director of social marketing at Comcast in a statement.
