Freebirds in Tyler

There was talk for a long time about opening a Freebirds in Tyler but I honestly never thought it was going to happen. I was first introduced to Freebirds in College Station. Then when I lived in the Houston area, there was one in just moments away me so I had to make frequent visits.
Oddly enough, despite popular belief, Freebirds did not start in college station. It actually started in Santa Barbara, California by two hippies who figured out how to roll burritos using fresh veggies, rice and beans, chicken and beef and other top of the line foods. Students in Santa Barbara claimed Freebirds as their own.
About four years later, Freebirds made its way to Aggieland where Texas A&M students got a taste of the burritos and helped introduce it to the rest of the nation.
There are four different size burritos and if you enter the store at the right time, they just might have a contest to see if you can eat the biggest one, and if you do, it could be free.
Freebirds is also known for its merchandise. When you’re at Freebirds in Tyler, be sure to check out the t-shirts, hats, key chains and other paraphernalia.
