Very friendly. Changed gloves and used fresh utensils. They confirmed everything is safe except the beef. I had a carnitas bowl.

5/16/22 Update. Major thanks to Reed who updated me on the menu. He confirmed everything is GF except the beef - *but* pointed out that the beef and chicken are cooked on the same grill. He also said stay away from the potatoes and bbq sauce. So helpful!

They used to have gf tortillas but recently got rid of them, unfortunately. However, their bowls are awesome! And they used dedicated scoops for each ingredient, unlike chipotle, where I’m always concerned about cross contamination.

Went to This Freebirds on a Saturday and when we mentioned I had celiac Alex immediately went and grabbed (without asking) a allergen menu and changed his gloves. He made my meal the entire time and never made me feel bad at all. He knew immediately what celiac was and I haven’t been this impressed at celiac knowledge in awhile. Food was great and we will definitely be back.

The new Siete grain free wrap is amazing. I was able to safely have my first burrito in nearly 10 years. More filling and better flavor than other options at similar food places.

It’s been a while since I tried to eat here. But that the last time I did, staff didn’t know what Celiac was or what gluten free meant. Was a hard pass for me at the time. That may have changed, but proceed with caution. Also the website listed here is not correct for this restaurant. I don’t think they have a website.

We have yet to have any issues with ANY Freebirds location in helping our 2 girls who have celiacs.

In our first visit the manager came out and handled our meal themselves. We were super grateful!

Told them I was gluten free, two guys just looked at each other and then said what would you like? I ordered corn tortilla tacos, they heated them up on the same press they use the flour tortillas on. Didn't tell me what options were gluten free as I moved down the line. Food was tasteless and it was overpriced. I can't believe anyone would recommend this place. It's especially unsafe for celiac people.

PEANUT OIL!

I had the nachos and they tasted great. I also have a peanut allergy and I am lucky I asked the right person because I didn’t see that they used peanut oil for the beans and rice. Just a heads up for any one who might have that allergy as well. As far as gluten free they changed their gloves and helped avoid cross contamination :)

Eat here a lot and only seem to feel sick when I get queso. Queso is supposed to be gluten free I think, but maybe just be careful.

The staff so easily accommodated me- washes hands/arms thoroughly, changed gloves, and used clean serving utensils. He made sure to keep anything of mine separate and was SO friendly and nice about everything. I usually feel some embarrassment but not here. I will definitely come back and I cannot say enough great things about this place!

I ate yesterday and asked the person making the food to change gloves. They politely complied, and started making my food. Someone else then came up and grabbed the tray to finish my order, after explaining to them that I needed them to change gloves because I didn’t know what they had touched, they said “no sorry” and continued making my order. I got very sick after eating dinner am now very cautious to go back to a place I used to enjoy.

I didn’t catch her name. She must have been the manager. She washed her hands, changed her gloves and took care of me herself. She said the only thing fried in the fryers are chips and potatoes. I ate a burrito bowl with chicken, rice and black beans. Chips and guacamole! I stuffed myself. She said the steak is not safe due to seasoning but all the other protein is. She said her cousin has celiac and she’d feed her from the restaurant. So far 0 reaction ! Yeah! So excited about this

I am visiting Texas from Idaho. I am very severe when it comes to gluten. I decided to try Freebirds. I had the kids meal Taco with white meat chicken, black beans, and cilantro lime rice on the corn tortilla. It's tasted great and no reaction. That's a win win in my book.

Like chipotle, there is a risk of cross contamination in the way that the food is served from the large containers. They’re good at changing gloves. They even have vegan options for the vegan in your life. Online, they have a very clear allergy info sheet. Don’t eat the chips or the steak, they’re not gluten free.

Have eaten here twice in past month with no problems. Got burrito bowl (no tortilla) with white meat chicken, black beans, Mexican rice, cilantro, lettuce, pico, salsa, roasted peppers and onions, garlic, lime juice, mixed cheese and sour cream. Portion is almost enough for 2 meals. Staff changes gloves when told you have allergy/celiac. More flavorful than Chipotle. Taking off one star since don’t carry corn or other GF soft taco shell or tortilla.

My first experience here was great! I wasn’t going to eat anything because I didn’t see any signs about gluten free options but the guy behind the counter encourage me to order a bowl. He quickly washed his hands and changed his gloves and guided me through my options! I had a yummy chicken fajita bowl and a sweet marshmallow treat too.

The tortillas are not gluten free as they're heated up on the same steamer as the flour tortillas. Also, the chips are full of cross contamination because they don't change their gloves before digging in to get the chips. Because of this, the gloves they used to make someone's burrito are put into the chip bin and contaminates the chips. 😕. Everything else is gluten free.

The staff made my meal and I was about to pay for it, when Patrick the manager asked me if I was gluten free because of allergies. When I told him yes, he threw the meal away because his staff did not change their gloves. He then said he would make my meal personally to make sure it was done right. He changed his gloves and got out fresh utensils to keep my food from being cross contaminated.

We ordered our food to go. I tried to plan ahead, but their website isn't very helpful for making smart gluten free choices, neither is their menu, but we worked it out. They have an allergen list, which I hate. Who has time for that? I hope they decide to simplify things in ther future.

Having been my first time eating from here, I enjoyed their burrito bowl very much. It was a simple carnita with cilantro rice and pico. Very tasty and I had no issues with cross contamination. What I found most interesting is that I didn't need to add anything to the meal like a sauce or spice. The meal had lots of flavor. I'm looking forward to eating from there again.
