To clarify, this is the Freebirds at University Dr. and Hwy. 6 Bypass, NOT the Northgate location, which was the second Freebirds in the US and the first in Texas.

One prior complaint was the volume of the music played. I didn't think it was a problem, but I just happened to be the only one in there at the time. I have noticed that it gets loud when you add the many voices of other patrons, so the noisiness isn't necessarily from the PA system.

I've been to 3 of the 4 Freebirds in College Station, including the Northgate location, where I visited frequently when they first opened about 20+ years ago. Of my visits in College Station, I'd say that this particular Freebirds has been my favorite. The workers were attentive when I gave them my order. When they asked for choices, they didn't seem bored, or just rattle off the options. They were friendly, but not goofy and stupid. They also weren't skimpy on putting on the toppings.

One review mentioned tasteless meat. That may be true, but the burritos aren't just meat - the taste experience comes from the many flavor combinations that YOU choose.

After all these years and new and more locations, Freebirds is still the place for awesome burritos and a fun time.

Freebirds is still great! Burritos were yummy as always. Like the smaller burritos for the kids. Everyone enjoyed their food and making foil sculptures.

I am by no means a stick in the mud when it comes to music and food....but this place was miserable to eat in. The food was decent but the music was so loud that we couldn't hear the staff when they were explaining menu options and repeating our order. Also it was so hot in there. I was hoping the staff got hazardous duty pay because they just looked sopping wet from sweat! Hopefully no one was overly dehydrated. I will say they still had fantastic attitudes for working in that envirnoment

The food, as always, is excellent! Good price for great food! The service was just ok today. I couldn't hear the server over the loud music, and I don't think he could hear me since he messed up my burrito twice. He immediately remedied the problem, though.
