[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HwVX9NOVrrg[/youtube]I have always thought of Freebirds World Burrito as originating in College Station, Texas, but they first opening their doors in Santa Barbara, California in 1987. Their motto “Feed Your Belly, Feed Your Soul” and relaxed atmosphere have always been a place my kiddos have enjoyed! If you have never been to a Freebirds, it is pretty much like a Subway restaurant, only for Tex-Mex. You can call it in, order when you get there or even order in advance on-line. I like it that I know I can have food for my entire family in less than 10 minutes, without the grease of some other fast food options.
The first Freebirds came to College Station, TX in 1991, at Northgate across the street from Texas A&M University. College Station now has a total of 4 locations around the vicinity of the area to help fulfill your burrito craving appetite, and there is rumor that there might be a 5th location coming soon! (I’m betting maybe at the new HEB Center off of Greens Prairie?)
Freebirds offers a wide variety of burritos, salads, quesadillas, nachos, tacos, and kid’s menu items!! But the big things to get when you come into Freebirds are their AMAZING burritos! There are many sizes and types to choose from like the Hybrid all the way up the massive 7lb SUPER MONSTER Burrito. — There is also special way to eat their burritos. The idea is to peel the foil your bird, like a banana, as you eat. My kiddos like playing with the foil and creating all sorts of animals, objects, etc. to stick on the brick next to the walls where other burrito consumers have done the same.
Freebirds in College Station, Texas is a place that anyone who comes to College Station needs to try! It is a place many of my clients ask me about and often a place we stop at for lunch while we are touring houses. Once you try one, you will always want another! Let me know if you have ever eaten a MONSTER–I can’t even finish my hybird!
