a Sunday story (5)

When Bryan and I were students at A&M, way back in the late 90s, there was one lonely Freebirds in College Station. By the time we graduated, another one had opened and now there are 4. Actually, they're all over Texas now.

When we ate at Freebirds, you could get a regular, a monster or a super monster with steak or chicken in a flour tortilla. Now you can get a half burrito or a veggie burrito wrapped in your choice of 4 different tortillas. Don't care for burritos? They now have tacos, nachos, and salads. And, a kids menu which is something Bryan and and I always look for :) I can't imagine going to Freebirds and getting a salad, but I'm sure they're good.

If you live in Dallas, Houston, Austin, College Station, San Antonio or any of the other Freebirds' locations, you are missing out if you haven't tried it. Bryan and I were so excited after we moved here and discovered Moe's. Some women at Bryan's office were talking about this place you could get great burritos. We couldn't wait and went fully expecting a Freebirds' experience. Needless to say, we left a little disappointed. Since that time, we've been back to Moe's and do enjoy their salads. We know if it's a burrito we're wanting though, we'll have to wait until our next trip to Texas.

So, if you live in Texas, think of us the next time you peel back that foil to chomp into your Monster.
