There is no better way to end a night out or to cure a hangover....or even just to pick up your day then a visit to freebirds. When I was at UCSB this was a regular feature in our activities. I visited recently (years after...More

Quesarito! Great things happen when you open up a cheesy quesadilla and treat it like a burrito. Greater things happen when you add steak, sour cream, peppers, lettuce, cilantro, onions, black beans and guacamole! Minus one star however for their outrageous charge of $2.50 for...More

Freebird's is known for Burritos and Tacos. Just like Chipotles you go thru a line and tell them how to make your item you are ordering. The meat quality is much better than Chipotles, and the salsa bar is better since not everything is spicy...More

Do not be fooled by the chain of the same name - this one is the real deal. Best burritos, nachos, and quesadillas! Chicken is better than steak here. Get lots of the BBQ sauce, which is unique and reallly delicious. Be warned: the food...More
