“Not terrible”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

Good place if you want to change it up from the usual Chipotle run. A littlie pricier but they have more toritlla choices and a wider range of additions. They have different size options and great tortilla chips, but be warned the burritos almost always come out smaller than what the version on the wall looks like. The place itself is interesting: foil sculptures everywhere from past customers and a bike hanging from the ceiling, but I found the staff to be a little slow and uninterested in the table area (place was empty but tables were dirty). They also tried to push their "Pot Brownie" a little too much at the register. Parking on the street can be a little rough, but typical for Hillcrest. The loyalty program is a nice gesture.

“Awesome Carnitas (that's pork!)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2012

If you love piggy as much as I love piggy, you gotta try Freebirds' pork burrito. So juicy and flavorful you'll wonder how they do it. The lime cilantro rice is also to die for; and oh, the roasted corn salsa is scrumptious.

I was skeptical when I first noticed they had opened - I figured it was some rich Anglo's attempt at Mexican food - but folks, these burritos are the real thing!
