The 70-year-old cafeteria chain has sold mac and cheese at its restaurants since the 1940s, and starting Dec. 5, you can buy a frozen version at more than 270 H-E-B stores in Texas.

H-E-B will sell two kinds of Luby’s mac and cheese — the original and one with jalapeños — for $6.95 for 40 ounces.

Early next year, the partnership between the two companies will grow to include another Luby’s favorite: a fried fish entree affectionately known as “square fish.”
