It’s Nacho Normal…

Hey Freebirds Fam, where did the time go? 2016 is almost over, so lets end it with a bang!

The holidays are officially here and we personally believe it’s never too early to start a party.

So take a step back, maybe even kick up your heels (or boots) and let our team serve your party with our full service catering options! If you can find a Freebirds, you can find Freebirds catering. We serve traditional boxed lunches, party platters and burrito or taco bars up to 10,000 guests (seriously).

We promise you, this is Nacho average catering!

Pro tip: Contact our catering specialist today to get the latest details on special holiday pricing now through Dec. 31st!

With a $2 donation, guests will receive a free dessert on their next visit and with a $5 donation, guests will receive a free entrée with the purchase of an entrée that they can redeem on their next visit.

Create Summers’ Best Burrito

The perfect summer bod is filled with a delicious burrito…and some creamy queso.

Summertime only comes around once a year. It’s your chance to exploit your taste buds and add freshness to the summer heat.

At Freebirds, we have the opportunity to choose the best ingredients and create an unforgettable and fresh experience for our guests. We’re serving up confidence in an honest culture with delicious meals that will leave you nothing less than a satisfied feeling.

We understand being on the ‘spot ‘can be somewhat intimidating after you’ve been asked “what else would you like?” Especially if there is a line of hungry guests waiting behind you. But our Tribe is there to help and suggest flavors you’ve never tried; we’re more than sure these tastes will hit the spot and create a memorable experience.

Our Tribe identified a few ingredients to add to your burrito that will not only spark some fresh summer zest, but will leave you savoring the best summer meal!

  • SEASONAL: Creamy Jalapeno
    • [Spice Level: 7] Inspired by local taco houses; jalapenos, garlic and cilantro are blended to perfection to create a vibrant and creamy texture with a medium to high heat. Be prepared! The heat of this salsa may vary according to the age and seed content of the jalapenos.

  • Salsa
    • [Spice Level: 5] Our House Salsa is like nothing you’ve ever tasted! Freshly chopped tomatoes with yellow onion, cilantro, serrano pepper and jalapenos; a tangy blend you need in your life.

  • Queso
    • [Spice Level: 4] Some may say, it’s what you actually find at the end of the rainbow. Our flavorful queso speaks to many as it perfectly combines pico de gallo, cilantro and jalapenos. Say hello to your new guilty pleasure!

corn salsa

  • Corn Salsa
    • [Spice Level: 3] Our delicious Fire-Roasted Corn Salsa recipe requires our Tribe Members to grill and shuck the corn everyday. Diving into this crisp combination will leave you wanting more and more…and more.

We love hearing from our guests! Tag us by sharing your photo on social media and let us know your thoughts on these tasty ingredients. Summer has never tasted so good!

FROM TEXAS TO TENNESSEE

#FBStreetKitchen rolls into the CMA Music Festival

The #FBStreetKitchen took to the streets during Nashvilles’ biggest attraction of the year, the CMA Music Festival!

The CMA Music Festival is a four-day event focused around country music and hosted by the Country Music Association in Nashville, TN.  Country fans from all over the world gather to the well-known music city to experience a country celebration with approximately 88,500 fans each day.

Our Freebirds Tribe was fortunate to meet fans from all over the U.S., Canada, Belgium and even re-united with loyal Texas A&M College Station alumni.  Through social media, guests expressed their excitement to visit the #FBStreetKitchen to finally get a taste of what’s to come.

Aside from participating in a world-known event, our best memory from the CMA Fest was witnessing guests react to our high quality ingredients. We didn’t hold back on the opportunity to educate the line on what it’s like in the kitchen; each meal made from scratch every day and sourcing local ingredients whenever possible.

We are more than certain that Nashville, TN is ready for us to open our home restaurant, and it truly showed during this CMA Music Festival. Nashville, get ready, we cannot wait to serve you!

The Freebirds Street Kitchen Is Here!

NOW SERVING: Burritos on Wheels

#FBSTREETKITCHEN

Freebirds Final-2514

It was only a matter of time before we decided to bring our delicious flavors to the streets. We are beyond excited to roll out our new concept serving guests on-the-go!

The #FBStreetKitchen made its official debut this past weekend at the 2016 Lone Star Jam in Austin, TX where it served burritos, tacos, tostadas and burrito bowls. Lone Star Jam exceeded our expectations as we experienced the full potential of our new venture.

On Route 66

The food truck includes a state-of-the-art kitchen that ensures a top-notch experience that we’ve served up for nearly 30 years. Our use of high-quality ingredients such as grilled poultry, superior steak and sautéed whole vegetables will remain an essential part of our commitment to excellence.

Our mobile eatery will serve much of what the Freebirds’ brick and mortar restaurants offer currently. Our team will be able to accommodate all of our guests by offering an all-veggie or vegan menu during special events.

#FBStreetKitchen is now on its way to take a nationwide journey visiting many of its restaurants throughout the U.S.  Stay tuned and follow us through our Blog, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook for dates and locations.

Quality You Can Count On

Our foundation is freshness. You can see it every day in our kitchens, where we use the best ingredients in our fresh-from scratch recipes. Since 1987, we’ve been sourcing locally whenever possible and only using ingredients that reflect our commitment to culinary excellence. You’ll never find a freezer in any of our kitchens and we pride ourselves in executing classic culinary techniques when preparing meals for our guests and their families.

This commitment to quality is never ending and has led us to new improvements. We are proud to introduce our new, fresher tortillas with a cleaner ingredient list and our new superior cut of sirloin steak. Visit your nearest Freebirds location and taste the upgrade in quality for yourself!
