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.

The menu is pretty basic (like and In-N-Out): Burrito, Monster Burrito or Nachos. You can choose beef (Tri-tip), chicken or veggie for each. This makes the long lines go pretty fast. For a family of four for lunch we got the Beef Monster Burrito and Chicken Nachos to share. Both were very good as you can choose which toppings/ingredients you... More

Every time I eat here I feel really unwell the next day. However it is very popular and open really late. Lots of people get nachos there after getting of Bill's bus.

Limited menu options, but what they do, they do well. Mainly Burritos, with a few taco and nacho options. Meats are limited to Chicken or Beef, but lots of choices on beans/salsas. The burritos are big, and they have a monster size that is too big for all but the most hearty eaters. Parking is very very limited, most diners... More

I've eaten in lots of Mexican restaurant, and 1 thing I don't order is anything with beef. I've learned my lesson. It's like chewing the sole of my flipflops. But this place change my burritos and tacos world. Their grass fed beef is Gooooooodddda. Goodbye rubbery meat, hello Freebird.

This quick style restaurant is a must visit in IV. The nachos are about 8 dollars and they are the best ever. There is a patio and indoor seating, and they are open late. Assembly line style cooking so you can customize your meal. They also have yummy horchata!

The title says it all.. Grab some Nachos and enjoy them at the beach. Just fantastic. Also the Burritos they do are fantastic. My favourite place for Mexican food when I was over there.
