Updated in 2021! As we headed to the California Coast, on our drive home from a trade show in Anaheim, we stumbled upon a Freebirds for lunch. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the food tasted delicious with some pleasantly bold flavors. The menu selection is quite similar to Chipotle or Qdoba, but with their own twists. Since that day, many Freebird locations have come and gone – including the ones in California. They’re now primarily a Texan chain, but still offer a big menu of dairy-free and vegan options, including the ones listed below.

All of these Freebirds items are are also egg-free, tree nut-free, and peanut-free. They’re also gluten-free, fish-free, and soy-free, unless otherwise noted.
