Freebirds, a Texas-based fast-casual Mexican eatery, experienced set backs to the opening timeline of a new restaurant at the Fort Bend Town Center retail space.

The details

First announced by the company in October 2022, a representative said the Missouri City restaurant was supposed to open in late 2023.

Additionally, a project filing from Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation set a construction completion date for Jan. 5. However, restaurant officials said the opening was delayed, and a new date has not yet been set.

Freebirds is known for its "Texas-sized burritos," per the brand's website. Its menu also includes bowls, salads, tacos and quesadillas with an assortment of interchangeable ingredients.

The nearest Freebirds restaurant is located in Sugar Land at First Colony mall.
