Mexican
Add some real spice to your life! Superior Grill has been rated consistently as one of Louisiana’s best Mexican restaurants since 1983 when our first establishment opened in Shreveport. Our New Orleans location opened in 1997 and has become a landmark in fine quality foods with a festive Mexican atmosphere. Superior’s authentic Tex-Mex food is made from scratch every day with only the freshest ingredients. Our tortillas are hand-rolled with care all day long. For added flavor, all of our meats are cooked over a mesquite grill. We are proud of what we make and how we prepare it. Superior Grill is “the place to be” for happy hour, birthdays, office parties, and large groups. In addition to our festive indoor dining room, we offer a memorable outdoor dining experience on our landscaped patio featuring beautiful flowers and one of the best views of St. Charles Avenue. Superior Grill New Orleans is one of four locations including Shreveport, Baton Rouge, and Birmingham.

    Very pleased with Superior Grill. Food and service were first-rate. Nachos and quesadillas were flavorful and the beans and rice were good in both texture and flavor, Nice outdoor setting added to the ambience. Will definitely go back.

    Waited 30 minutes from when we sat to the time our server came by, which only happened after we asked the host what was going on. One of our water glasses had red lipstick all over the rim and the table next to us was so loud I couldn’t hear a thing my friends were saying . I realize I have nothing good to say in this review but this was one of the most bizarre dining experiences I’ve ever had.. once our server did come around someone else bussed our drinks and said something about bringing the receipt when we hadn’t even ordered our food. To be clear our server was very nice. I don’t expect superior to knock it of the park or expect a 5 star dining experience. However they missed the bar on all fronts. A solid meal on a slow, rainy, Tuesday night isn’t that much to ask. Normally I wouldn’t complain about how loud another table was, but this was just the icing on the cake. We all wanted to leave and would have if it weren’t 8pm. I haven’t been to superior in years and sadly I have learned my lesson.
