Freebirds World Burrito made its name (derived from the Lynyrd Skynyrd song Free Bird) as a hardworking entity in the Golden and Lone Star States many moons ago. Created in California back in '87, Freebirds later became a favorite in Aggieland (better known as College Station, Texas) and quickly expanded as our creators discovered they weren’t alone in their quest for a restaurant that satisfied their hunger better than the confinements of a typical burger-and-fries joint. They wanted something more appetizing but, most importantly, a lot of options.
