Available at locations nationwide, the menu features a variety of burritos, bowls, and salads under 600 calories, spotlighting low-calorie ingredients made by tribe members every day.

“The goal of the Six Under 600 Calories menu items is to offer our customers a selection of tasty, high-quality meal options they can feel good about eating,” says COO Bobby Shaw. “We want to spread the word that healthy options were always available at Freebirds, due to our mindfully-sourced, fresh ingredients.”

The menu features a selection of guilt-free burritos, bowls, and salads, including the 480 Chicken Bowl (480 calories) featuring Spanish rice, pinto beans, spiced thigh meat chicken, cheese, pico de gallo, jalapeños, and guacamole; the 575 Steak Bowl (575 calories) a delicious blend of cilantro lime rice, black beans, steak, sautéed veggies, lime juice, roasted garlic, and corn salsa; the 540 Chicken Burrito (540 calories) featuring their Freebird flour tortilla, black beans, spiced thigh meat chicken, sautéed veggies, habanero sauce, pico de gallo, corn salsa, and jalapeños. In order to accommodate all diets, the menu also includes a 435 Vegan Bowl (435 calories) featuring Freebirds’ new calabacitas tempeh, cilantro lime rice, black beans, sautéed veggies, lime juice, fresh salsa, cilantro, and corn salsa.

Rounding out the healthy, low-calorie menu items are the 402 Chicken Salad (402 calories) featuring fresh greens, black beans, white meat chicken, roasted garlic, lime juice, cheese, pico de gallo, cilantro, corn salsa, and tortilla strips, and the 489 BBQ Chicken Salad (489 calories) consisting of shredded lettuce, Spanish rice, spiced thigh meat chicken, sautéed veggies, habanero sauce, lime juice, BBQ sauce, cheese, fresh salsa, and guacamole.
