A must if you are in Isla Vista

This Chipotle-like burrito/taco/quesadilla joint is a bit of institution. Party all night then cap it off with Freebirds. Despite irritatingly small cups for the salsa bar that make it impossible to dip - I recommend the Nachos.

I've never had better. Perfection. Sauces are spot on, I've tried most menu items. Que sorbitol is TDF to die for!

I never should have set foot in Freebirds, that was my first mistake. My second was thinking I could handle what came later. I couldn't. One of the biggest Monster burritos you could ever imagine, in your most dystopian nightmares. Big enough to take you on in the Thunderdome, and win. Terrifying amounts of beef (or chicken, if that's what... More

Nachos best I've had. They're the easiest to make but always vary on taste. You get them in abundance. Burritos big N fresh. Much better than chipotle or qdoba in my opinion.

The Freebird's in Isla Vista is the original, and it is SIGNIFICANTLY better than the others they've opened throughout So-Cal.

The only downside... it is... More

This nice burritos place at Isla Vista is famous for very large courses of burritos and Nachos. The quality is not very good and you must love mexican food if you want to be satisfied when you finish eating here. Only recommended because it is open 24h.

We love Freebird's burritos! They are huge--so you can share or take 1/2 home for later. It's fun to sit outside on the patio watching all the university students buzz by on their bikes and skateboards.
