THE CLOCK SAYS 7AM

For awhile now I have been hearing the FREEB!RDS crew arrives super early to make everything from scratch. Scratch, this is a restaurant on speed (at least it is during lunch on any given day) moving a mile a minute. How do they keep it fresh? No, seriously.

Well let's just say that on my recent visit to Shepherd Plaza in Houston, I got a sneak peak behind the scenes. Yep, at 7am. Not only was the rice cooking but the chips were being fried, dipped and swirled (all homemade mind you) and the Roasted Tomatillo dressing was being whipped up for the days use. Man, was I impressed! I've never seen a place like this with such a dedicated crew. Who knew it took so much hard work, dedication and committed bunch of folks to make FREEB!RDS what it is today. Again, super impressed. I have such a better appreciation of what I'm eatingh......I mean all those chips will taste that much better as I wolf them down with my all-time favortire queso. Yum!

Keep up the great work you guys.....I'm thinking this is way too cool to be "not normal!"

RE-GRAND OPENING PARTY - Shepherd Plaza Re-Grand Opening

EVEN A ROCK ICON DESERVES A NIP TUCK
we're unveiling a new look at shepherd plaza, houston

We've changed a few things at FREEB!RDS. But not to worry, we've got the same high quality service, food and now a twice as fast line thanks to the expanded floor plan and dual traffic-line pattern. The space is now more in line with how the rest of our newer restaurants are looking....

Be sure to come by
THIS THURSDAY from 6:30-9pm as we celebrate with friends, family and you, our Fanatics. We'll have live music, great food, giveaways and more. And since we're all about "Sharing the love," be sure to come armed with canned food (or non-perishable goods) to donate to the Houston Food Bank. It's just the beginning of our journey, so join us. Be a part. I mean after all, aren't you a Fanatic? They wouldn't want to be left out of the fun.

SUPPORT OUR LOCAL FOOD/CLOTHES DRIVE TOMORROW

We're hosting a food & clothing drive for St. Vincent de Paul food pantry & store. The drive is going to last through the weekend. (Friday-Sunday) and the reason for the drive is that there is a food pantry located on Congress/Oltorf that provides food and clothing to over 500 families in our neighborhood. They have fed close to 5900 Austinites since October, and now their pantries are empty. They are in desperate need of our help, so join us as we help our neighbors and people in need.


The KICK OFF PARTY is tomorrow!

Friday, November 6th

held at our South Congress location, 515 South Congress

12pm-3pm


There will be food/drinks, Live acoustic performances by SHURMAN, The Mother Truckers & Stonehoney. Volunteers will be there to collect your donations.Thank you in advance for your support!
