Whether it’s California or Texas, FREEBIRDS has produced a solid following. Why? Awesome burritos and freedom of preference. As guests join the queue, they may be partnered using a team member, known as the “Roller,” who enables them to select from four sizes of burrito created from four possible flavors of tortilla then hand-rolled with the guest’s personal selection from more than forty freshly prepared ingredients including grass fed beef, hormone-free chicken or all natural pork carnitas topped with hand-cut veggies and hot peppers plus house made salsas, queso and guacamole to produce their perfect burrito. Burritos range in dimensions through the generously-sized Hybird to the legendary Super Monster which can weigh-in at seven pounds.
At the USC location FREEBIRDS will introduce a brand new Crispy Fish choice for burritos, tacos and salads. Additionally, the USC restaurant will serve breakfast burritos and tacos prepared with a choice of steak, bacon or chorizo. Breakfast hours are 6:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., Monday through Friday, and on weekends from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

The USC location will feature the concept’s signature Statue of Liberty – affectionately called ‘Libby’ – riding a custom-built motorcycle while breaking nhepdh the Freedom Wall which was made to serve as being a reminder that everyone can break through walls and truly change the planet.
