I was excited to finally try Freebirds. There is a lot of hype about how good it is and this may be true if not vegan. I shared with the woman helping me that I was up for anything, so long as it was vegan. Knowing that tortillas are not always well labeled, I ordered the vegetarian burrito bowl. It went downhill from there. The woman helping me was unsure which rice was vegan, if either. I selected the cilantro lime as it had a higher likelihood compared to the Spanish rice. She then suggested the tempeh option. Cool! Happy to try something for vegan visitors. She did know the beans were vegetarian, so I got black beans and topped everything off with extra grilled veggies, lettuce, tomato, and guacamole. It sounds good.

But it was just okay. Chipotle is more tasty for vegans. The tempeh was not well seasoned and made everything taste bland. All of it was bland. Oops.

Freebirds gets two of five vegan cupcakes. Decor is super fun and the food is fresh, but flavorless. I probably won’t return unless I hear about changes worth trying.
