When you first enter Freebirds World Burrito, two things might immediately jump out at you: the Statue of Liberty riding a motorcycle hanging above diners’ heads, and the colorful wall mural with the word “freedom” splayed across it. More than a bit of nationalism, the word is actually Freebirds’ motto, thanks to their create-your-own burrito business model. The convivial dining room adjoins the line for food ordering, where customers can order burritos, tacos, nachos, salads and more. Want Spanish or cilantro-lime rice? Queso or shredded cheese? Freshly prepared vegetables and salsa? You can have it all, or in any combination, at Freebirds. The employees are as fun and individualistic as Austin itself, and no corporate dress code means you may be waited on by someone in a Dr. Seuss hat. “It’s not normal” states the Freebirds menu; that’s for sure.
