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.

Margarita was good, fajitas were ok, really skimped on the peppers, onions, and other fixins, server was very pleasant

We got there a little early and they were able to seat us right away. The service was fast, and friendly. The food was great. We overall really enjoyed our evening. It was a little hot in the restaurant, but we were seated near a window and the sun was streaming through straight at our table. They could have had the fans on that were over our area. But overall a very nice evening. We will be back

Delicious and very large servings - good location with street parking availability
Waiter friendly and appeared to be relatively new, so could have checked on us a little more often.

Ok, WOW! I’ve never been to a Mexican Restaurant as unique and rare as this one. I ordered a whole table of food for myself. Everything was, hands-down, the absolute best food I’ve had in a while. It even beats all the fine dining restaurants I’ve been eating at. The extremely fresh/homemade guacamole is a MUST ORDER. To keep this short, I’ll only mention one more thing. THE STEAK FAJITAS WERE NOT ONLY EXTREMELY IMPRESSIVE IN PRESENTATION, BUT THE STEAK WAS A+ GRADE AND FAR BETTER THAN ALL THE FILETS IVE BEEN EATING AT RUTH’S CHRIS. This is not a joke. I’m still in awe of my dinner last night.

The restaurant has a good feel to it. All the windows were open and it was very pleasant outside. The waiter came quickly and took our drink order. The appetizers came out in a timely manner. The main entrees came out right after the appetizers were eaten. All the food was good

Ordered a large skinny margarita that was the worst I have ever had... way too strong and bitter. The drink also cost $18, which was more than my $15 salad.

The quality of all the food we ordered was great. Except the tortilla chips which were flimsey and couldn’t even hold the sauce without breaking. Plus they were tasteless.

But everything else gets a 5 star rating!!

Had a nice lunch with friends on a rainy Monday. Food was delicious, service was great! My skinny margarita was $18 however! Seems more like a top shelf price to me-it was good though. It was so nice to not wear a mask 😷

Superior is always a great spot for Mexican food and margaritas! We went for Mother's Day lunch and it wasn't terribly busy. Service was a bit slow. I suspect our waiter was new and still working his way around. I will definitely go back, but wish that a manager made rounds to check no customers.

We visit the grill regularly. It’s the most consistent restaurant I’ve ever been to. Maybe 1 time in 25 has our experience not been up to the same standard. Can be loud sometimes but would recommend to anyone!

Superior Grill was one of my favorite places to go for steak fajitas. The portion seemed smaller and thinner but overall really was a disappointment. Makes me sad.
I won’t be back.

Darrien was ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL! We were actually coming in on the tail end of her shift. We were willing to wait for the next server, we understood that a shift change was taking place and we were fine with that. Darrien came over, introduced herself took our drink order and still put our appetizers in, even though at this point she wasn’t our server. She checked on us to make sure that our needs were addressed. After our appetizers and drink arrives she offered to take our order, even though the other server hadn’t arrived and her shift had technically expired. Not only did she get the ENTIRE order correct, including ALL of the special requests, she continued to serve us until we were done. Darrien should be recognized for her OUTSTANDING commitment to customer service! I’ve been a loyal customer for YEARS due to the tacos and margaritas, with the level of service that Darrien provides, you’ll have a customer for LIFE! #Darrienmakesthedifference

We always have a fabulous evening when we come here! I stick with my favorites: the ceviche and the ahi tuna tacos but my daughter ventured out and we’ve loved everything she has tried. (Shrimp and steak fajitas this time)
Their chips and salsa and margaritas are reason enough to to come but I love sitting outside on a warm evening too.
This has become our special stop whenever I’m in town (and there’s a lot of competition in this town!)

This restaurant--like Superior Seafood just down the street and one of our favorites--has wonderful fun decor and a wonderful old Mexico atmosphere. The food was excellent and an outstanding waiter. Really liked the coconut flan. We will definitely go again on our next trip to NOLA.

Not many people think to get Mexican when they visit New Orleans but being this place is our go to when we visit home (we live in Nashville now). Highly recommend the crawfish enchiladas and a Superior margarita!

We ate early so it wasn’t loud or crowded. The food is consistently good. We both had combo enchiladas. It was happy hour, so the large top shelf margarita was a bargain for the price of a small.
