Foil art has been a part of the Freebirds culture since the first Texas location opened in College Station near Texas A&M University in 1991.

“A few guests and crew used their burrito wrappers as a creative outlet, making shapes out of them and leaving their mark in the restaurant,” says Freebirds president, Jim Mizes.

“Then it went sideways on us.”

Today, every Freebirds restaurant is strewn with foil art. It symbolizes personal expression and freedom of choice, both hallmarks of the Freebirds brand.
