I never should have set foot in Freebirds, that was my first mistake. My second was thinking I could handle what came later. I couldn't. One of the biggest Monster burritos you could ever imagine, in your most dystopian nightmares. Big enough to take you...More

Ok...maybe the highlight was seeing and chatting up Adam Sandler in line but this food was awesome! Their burritos are huge and very good but my money is on those nachos!

Nachos best I've had. They're the easiest to make but always vary on taste. You get them in abundance. Burritos big N fresh. Much better than chipotle or qdoba in my opinion.

The menu is pretty basic (like and In-N-Out): Burrito, Monster Burrito or Nachos. You can choose beef (Tri-tip), chicken or veggie for each. This makes the long lines go pretty fast. For a family of four for lunch we got the Beef Monster Burrito and...More
