I'm not really a big burrito fan at all, but I really love Freebirds. This could be why I avoided the chain Chipotle especially since I had a horrible food experience in one of the Dallas area stores.

I've really enjoyed coming to freebirds for a while now. The food is great and you certainly get a lot of it for a great price.

I always order the freebird with flour. I get lettuce, rice, black beans and one sliver of sour cream and about half a serving of cheese.

The ingredients are fresh and everything is vegetarian except for the meat (beans are veggie). The staff is eclectic and work fast.

Price is right and I love the frequent buyer card.

As any Austinite or UT student knows, Freebirds has the best burritos around. If you like imposter mexican food, then Chipotle is probably for you, but if you want the real thing go for Freebirds!

This place is terrible. Dry burrittos and chewy tasteless tortillias. Forget the liberal sounding name, this place is a joke. Please, go to Chipotle for a good fat warm burritto.

I have to say I didn't like the place. I'm from El Paso, and when we go to a burrito place we expect to see things like chile verde, chile colorado, carnitas, etc. Having the option to choose between beef or chicken just doesn't cut it. The sauces are not good either. I know that pico de gallo varies from region to region, but I do know that it should be spicy and tangy. For what we get, the price is quite high. I much prefer the two dollar burritos off the burrito truck at the local construction sites.

One of the coolest things that you notice when first walking into any Freebirds, is the amount of local foil art that you see (you can be a foil artist too!). If you come to freebirds, you have to get a burrito. The burritos are pretty much customizable and the sizes can get to be HUGE. I had a friend that ordered the super monster, and he had to take a nap halfway through before he could finish it. I strongly recommend this place for non texans and for a great lunch.

Cons: Choices of meats (white/dark chicken and beef) seems limited to me

Freebirds is the place to get it, no contest. The good people at the Hancock center Freebirds have been keeping college students well fed for years.

Freebirds is my Austin comfort food. White meat chicken with rice and black beans, with cilantro, tomatoes, lettuce, lime juice, death sauce, and a ton of their "bad *ss barbeque" sauce. Heck yeah. Great, fast service, too. You won't need to eat again for HOURS.

First of all, the service has always been really great. Super friendly people. But I agree with another reviewer about the lack of creativity. I don't think the menu options are that special. Yeah, you have a choice between 4 types of tortillas, and it's cool that you don't have to wonder about whether the beans and rice are vegetarian (they are). But the fillings are nothing to brag about- e.g. the guacamole is made from a pre-mashed avocado mix, not fresh. Totally fresh guacamole is key. If anyone has ever been to a Burritoville in NYC, they'd probably agree that Freebirds doesn't even come close. But overall, it's a good place for vegans and carnivores alike. You definitely get a lot of food, and like I said, the servers have always been super nice. Also, if you go at off-peak hours, seating is no problem.

Freebirds makes a solid burrito. The ingredients are mostly solid and fresh, but the main negative at Freebirds is that they don't have any real formula and resort to the assembly-line choose your own adventure burrito. This is nice every once in a while, but shows an overall lack of creativity. If they know how to make a good burrito, why can't they make one without forcing the customer to spend 5 minutes in line picking each and every ingredient.

With a little more style and a proper menu, Freebirds would be one of the better burritos in Austin.

Although Austin is known for Tex/Mex there aren't many places where you can get just a burrito especially in the West Side of town. Freebirds is a smaller regional chain, unlike Chiptole, that serves big burritos. Although you won't find any exotic toppings or meats like Pork (Carnitas) that you would find at an authentic taqueria, you can order Chicken and Beef Steak burritos. On the down side, if your a carnivore, depending on your server, the server may decide to enforce his/her political views (especially if they're vegetarian) and you'll end up with a burrito with less meat than others.

Cons: Inconsistent Portions, Long Lines

If you don't mind eating a burrito the size of your head, this is the place to go.

The burritos are good and are prepared uniquely and rapidly.

It's a good place to get full.

I typically eat at Freebird's at least once a month, sometimes more. Sure, not much a of a menu (a burrito or a quesadilla) but what they serve is good enough! The long lines kept me from trying it for years, but finally got dragged there one day and am glad I braved the line (don't worry, it moves fast).

The Monster, The half bird and the original freebird are all A+ meals. They have a Super Monster, but I am afraid to order it... Not because of the name, but because you already get so much food with a Monster. This is a quick food experience that is sure to flood its marketplace. Fun enviornment, good food, what's not to love? Freebirds is that college town americana that is lacking only franchise rights. We need more of these restraunts around. Go forth and reek havoc Freebirds! A+

First off: Austin is a great town.

Nevertheless, there are many places and things in this town which, because they are seen as being "Austin-y", are highly overrated by the residents. Freebirds is one (Shinerbock, Huts, and ESPECIALLY CHUY'S are others). This place is pretty good, but it is no better than Chipotle, which is much easier to eat at because they have more locations, and they are cheaper.

This place has the best and biggest burritoes I have ever seen or tasted. If you are a beef or chicken eater...you can have what you want. If you are vegetarian, they got you covered. The choices and variations are endless. Where else do you have 4 choices just for the tortilla? This is where you can have your burrito your way! Austin loves FreeBirds! They have choices that children would want. The staff is friendly and efficient...even the longest lines go quickly. Grab a Chronicle to read while you wait...are just talk to your neighbor. Freebirds has an extremely casual atmosphere that makes even a newcomer feel right at home.

Having first tried Freebirds in College Station, we were happy to hear that they were coming to Austin. Since opening, we have been numerous times, and have introduced several friends. The food is awesome, the prices reasonable, the portions huge. I've never had a bad experience there, and everyone that we have taken has been hooked.
