“Great as always.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

A consistent place for good food and great value. My granddaughter loved the quesadillas, my daughter loved the tacos, my wife loved her tortilla bowl with carnitas, and my Freebird with carnitas was outstanding. Definitely one of our regular spots.

“A Local Tradition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

If you want a burrito, come here. They have several locations, and they are popular with families looking for food after little league or soccer, with students, and with anyone wanting a filling meal for under $10. They serve mostly burritos, made to your specifications. They will help you learn the process if you are a first timer. I eat here often.

“First and Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

I remember when this chain was about to go under in the nineties and they started the free the bird campaign. From there they have never looked back. The first and still the best mission style burritos in CS.

“Something was old or bitter”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

The last several times I've eaten at Freebirds, I was unable to eat my burrito due to something on it that tasted very bitter and overpowered all other flavors. I'm thinking maybe it was the lime juice, but it was so bad (on 2 separate visits) that it made not want to ever go back.

“An experience you won't forget”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

The exterior and interior decorating are an experience in itself. The staff was wonderful. The food is outstanding. You go through a line selecting everything you want on your burrito or other item and the chefs make it all fresh. Lots of choices and the food was great. We made a swan sculpture out of our foil and added it to the collection. A fun place and we went a second time during our 2 day stay!
