Freebirds

Freebirds SUCK if u ask me! They give the smallest portion possible and compared to Bullritos-well there really isn't any comparison.

For amount of food/for the buck- Bullritos ROCKS!!!

Stinky Mediocure Food

I have been there twice. Both times because I was dragged by a friend.

The first time the place smelled so bad of rotten garbage we had to move twice just to fine a spot both inside or outside that we could stomach eating at the same time as the stench.
After having to bath in humid air of rotten trash I said I would never go back again. But, one of my friends said it is not like that and to give it another chance, so I did.
The smell was not as bad the second time, but it was still there. The staff is friendly, but my burrito was dry and not very flavorful.
Overall why go someplace that I really do not like the food and the air smells.

My guilty pleasure

Love it! It gets a little bust around lunchtime, but it's worth the wait. The BBQ sauce is amazing and the queso is worth the upgrade.

Great steak fajita meat at a great price

Freebirds would make a KILLING if it had locations near UH or Rice.

I frequent this and the I-10/Taylor location, and almost always get three crispy corn tacos with only four ingredients each: steak, habañero sauce, jalapeños, and guacamole. Been there enough so that the staff already knows what to do when I walk up. LOL

At the time of this writing, those tacos only run me $4.77, plus $1.50 for a drink. Compare that to Chipotle for the same tacos, where it's pushing $20 for food and drinks for two people, and the meat isn't as well-seasoned.

I've also had their steak salads, steak bird bowls, and steak burritos, and enjoyed them all thoroughly. You might say I like steak, and Freebirds doesn't disappoint. Think I'll go get some now!

Great food, creepy and disrespectful employee (Ashley??) -- place will be great again when she's gon

This review is going to start out crappy, but end delicious. Bear with me now...

I've been a longtime Freebirds junkie (at several locations in Tejas), but will most likely never return to the Houston Freebirds Shepherd location due to a specific employee.

Her name is Ashley (last name, no clue) and she has been repeatedly brash and inappropriate in hitting on my guy when we've been there. Like, to the extent where we simply do not eat there anymore. It's uncomfortable and just disgusting (and kind of sad?? hello?? you're at work?? we're here to eat burritos?? he's taken??).

A crappy way to begin a review for a place I love to eat at, but seriously -- ladies, I would advise you and your man just avoiding this girl. She's obviously a little off. Hopefully she'll be headed out soon and the Freebirds world will be well again. Icky.

Now for positive things - I love the burritos at Freebirds. LOVE LOVE LOVE. Everything is incredibly fresh, their choice of tortillas is always nice and their salsa/hot sauce is always just right.

The price is just so right (lunch usually under $8 for me) and their burrito sizes are great and scale to what meals I accidentally skipped earlier in the day ( life is busy, it happens). My daughter loves their kiddo meals and even with her unholy appetite walks away satisfied.

Beyond weird employee situations, this is/was one of the most welcome texmex comfort food spots in Houston. The fact that it is next door to Amy's Ice Cream just makes it that much more perfect :)

man burrito

when i am hung over and need a burrito i go to freebirds. Then I feel like a grizley bear for a couple of hours, but mmmmmm really good burritos.
Also I call in burritos and pick them up. That kicks but when there is a huge line and you can walk around it.

Not bad, but still a Chipotle fan.

Overall, Freebirds isn't too bad. They're higher priced than their rival, Chipotle, which is a con, but they DO have free flowing cilantro, which is always a plus for me. They also charge for sour cream, which is kind of ridiculous. Their rice is a little bland, but, like I said, it's not bad. It's about a 9.50+ meal for a burrito of comparable size (like from Chipotle) and a soda. The major plus? Amy's Ice Cream is right next door. Give it a shot. My friends who prefer Freebirds say it's the rice. I don't see it, but maybe you will.

Best Burritos in Town

This is hands down the best place in Houston for a made to order burrito. Ingredients are always fresh and way more variety than other burrito places. Try some roasted garlic and the BBQ sauce on your burrito - it's really good!

Best Burrito!

My husband and I have heard people talk about Freebirds, but we had never tried it. Finally, we gave into our gut instinct and gave this place a try. We were amazed! We were pleasantly greeted, and we told them it was our first time dining there. They were so warm and friendly, and went down through the whole ordering process. Everything was a breeze, and all the ingredients looked so fresh. The taste? My goodness! It was amazing. Everything you wanted...was there. Not only was it fresh, but it was spread evently throughout, and you just didn't taste a glob of an ingredient. The music was awesome. They were playing songs from the 90's, and the decor was just so fun, and inviting. People kept coming in, and ordering so you know it's good when it's constantly busy. We left stuffed, and happy, and agreed that we'd be back for sure :)

Build a great burrito your way

This is THE place to get a burrito. It is built to order just the way you want. Fair price for the largish portions. Bonus is the AMY's ice cream next door.

Great burrito with WIFI

I love the burritos here and they have the no tortilla option as well for those low carb people. I like to come here eat lunch and work on stuff on the computer. Having WiFi was a great idea.

2nd Freebird opened in Houston Area

Freebirds is AMAZING!!! What's even better is that within the last year another Freebird's opened in the Houston area (with a Jamba Juice next door) - Bay Area Blvd, not far from I45 (opposite side of freeway from mall) across from Taco Cabana. I had my first Freebird a year ago and I have been hooked ever since. Great for college students because you can get a Monster and eat off it for days. Plus you can get Stamps to get Stuff(ed) with every burrito purchase (you get Freebird T's, hats or a free burrito).

LOVE IT!

Freebirds is one of my favorites places to eat in the world! The food is amazing and you don't go home hungry that's for sure. Anyone who hasn't tried it should, because you don't know what you are missing. My boyfriend and I go there when ever we are in downtown because we love the place so much. It's kind of like fast food but it's almost a restraunt, the environment is a lot of fun. It can get crowded but it's worth it just for the food.

Best Burritos Ever!

Freebirds is the most amazing burrito experience you will ever have. Forget the lesser knock offs (Chipotle, I'm looking in your direction), Freebirds tops them all. Better ingredients, wider variety, cooler employees.

Save the Bird, Eat a Monster!

Worth a trip to see the staff

Right by the office. We actually go in to play ""count the peircings on the server"". Very interesting staff but they are always super nice and quick!!! Food is good for a quick lunch, not worth a dinner trip unless your still in college or pregant having a craving. Healthy options with the Wheat Tortilla and chicken breast.

Just GREAT!

Definately a place for those young at heart! And once your done you can go next door to Amy's for some wonderful ice cream - that's if you have room!

Always a treat!

I hope this place catches on and they create more Freebirds locations. The first time I went was in College Station and I was thrilled when they opened in Houston. One Super Monster burrito can last 3 meals! The best part is YOU choose what goes in your burrito. The service is first class.
The ingrediants are always fresh and there are many to choose from. Freebirds never disappoints! Call ahead during lunch hour. Truly the best burrito in the world.
