Freebirds World Burrito Brings Two Worlds Together for a Wow of Flavor
**Full Disclosure: I received dinner in exchange for my review, but not to worry, all opinions are 100% mine.
We’ve all heard of Tex-Mex, but no one brings the worlds of Tex and Mex together quite like Freebirds World Burrito. It’s grilling time and Texas has some of the best barbecues in the U.S. And now Freebirds is bringing Texas Mesquite Smoked Brisket to their menu. Slow smoked lean beef that is tossed in a sweet, savory BBQ sauce is now fully customizable in their burritos, nachos, loaded queso and more.
So how do you Freebirds? Follow these steps:
Decide on a dish: burrito, quesadilla, nachos, tacos, salad or bowls. Then pick a size if applicable. Sizes are hybird (smallest), classic, monster or super monster.
Pick a tortilla: flour, wheat, cayenne or spinach (if applicable)
Pick a protein: Texas brisket, steak, carnitas, ground beef, chicken or veggies if you are going vegetarian.
Add your beans: black, whole pinto beans, refried beans
Add cheese: Monterey Jack, cheddar or mix
Add rice: Spanish or cilantro
Choose a sauce like BBQ, creamy jalapeno, or hot tomatillo.
Add extras: Selections include lots of choices like lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, onions, salsa. Some extras have an added charge like sliced avocados or queso.
OK, that’s it! As you can see there are many ways to dress up or dress down your Freebirds selection.
Today I’m trying the Texas Brisket because I’m a Texan and it’s barbecue season here in Texas. With the wide variety of toppings and sauces available at Freebirds, you can choose to go fully Tex and finish their brisket with BBQ sauce, ranch, pickled jalapenos, and roasted corn, lean a little more towards the Mex with guacamole, queso and creamy jalapeno salsa or strike the perfect balance somewhere in between.
I ordered the hybird cause even though they say it’s the smallest, I found it to be plenty big. And I like plain flour tortillas cause that’s what we do in San Antonio. I like sticking to old school Mex, not the fancy flavors although I’m sure they are good. Beans, on the other hand, are a hard choice for this Tex-Mex girl cause I like them all. Today it was pinto because they go with BBQ better. Cilantro rice, cheddar cheese, lime juice, salsa, cilantro, and grilled peppers/onions rounded it out for me. I was literally drooling by the time I sat down to eat this bad boy. And what a delicious mouthful this Texas Mesquite Smoked Burrito was. My combination of ingredients took on more of the Tex flavor with a hint of Mex thanks to the salsa. The brisket was tender, moist and smoky like it should be and everything else complimented it beautifully.
I also tried a regular order of their nachos. Again I went with the brisket, then added more Mex for the traditional dish with tomatoes, onions, black beans, cheddar cheese, cilantro and a side of guacamole. Mexican nachos with Texas Mesquite Smoked Brisket. Awesomeness!
The Texas Brisket is on the menu in San Antonio now so get over to your local Freebirds World Burrito and give it a try. Let’s see how you Freebirds!
