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.

They were 30 minutes late on our reservation, the table was dirty, we didn’t get silverware until 5 minutes after our food was delivered, our appetizer and margaritas never came (but were on the bill), my kids drinks came after the dishes were bussed off the table. The kids root beer floats were $2.75 on the menu. They charged us $3 for the drink and $3.95 for the ice cream. It was a complete disaster.

Six of us. Not too picky, not in a rush, but Rafael couldn’t seem to keep up. Food is delicious. Atmosphere is fun. Will return, but might find someone else to take care of us next time.

Very accommodating staff to our needs. Even held our table an additional 30 minutes when an unforeseen delay came up.

Food was top quality. Only complaint was inattentive server He was Delayed in getting our order taken and the bill settled. He did have other tables but they seemed to get better service than us.

Our waiter seemed rude and unprofessional. When I asked if there was a jalapeño margarita, he rolled his eyes, then said, "nope." When the waiter asked us what we wanted for appetizers, we let him know that we had no menus. He laughed and said, let me go grab your menus--then proceeded to slam the QR code on our table. There were other instances throughout our night that left us feeling uncomfortable.

What a great experience! My daughter lives in New Orleans and wanted me to try this restaurant- I don’t know what took me so long!
Service was excellent. We had a fantastic waiter and I always return for great service. But I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the ceviche and the ahi tuna tacos!!! And the margaritas actually.
I didn’t realize there were lighter options- or a “fit “ menu
These two dishes were perfect for and to me
I’ll be back. I stay at the Hampton every time. Shame on me for not trying this restaurant before!

Service was very slow. The tortilla soup was more of a veggie soup. The hostess was very kind and greeted us with smiles.

Best Tex Mex in New Orleans! Lovely setting on St. Charles Avenue. Delicious food and great service. Tamales were best ever and beautifully presented. Our favorite Christmas Eve family tradition. We will return often!

We had a wonderful family lunch at Superior Grill! The food was amazing and plentiful! Great service! And we appreciate that we can make reservations and that the restaurant is not too crowded and we don't have to stand around and wait. Can't wait to come back!

My overall score is generous due to our waitress who was so nice and did a great job! I made a reservation. We were seated next to a party of 8 or 9 (which not really sure how or why that was allowed. Most places won’t seat more than 6 right now as appropriate.) You could hear them in the entire restaurant. We had to yell our orders to the waitress. I mean that literally. We ate and couldn’t pay the bill fast enough. The food was mediocre. I’ve had better Mexican at a hole in the wall.

Superior Grill is in my neighborhood. Convenient and easy for us. This was the worst enchiladas I have ever had. The desert needed to be returned. The service was good but the food has definitely declined during COVID.

We are regulars and love it everytime we go. The food is good and consistent. The prices are average. Last night we had a personable, professional waiter, but he had been given an entire row of tables and it was just way to much to handle. The service was terribly slow because of this. I’m assuming it was a staffing issue.

The food was good. The wait staff wasn't very attentive. We had a baby with us and they attempted to put us outside in the sun and seem put off when we asked to be inside. It was a Sat morning so I cut imagine they were worried about noise.

We took our niece and nephew to dinner Friday night to celebrate our nephew’s birthday. As always, the service and our meals were outstanding. We frequent Superior Grill ni-weekly, and our stomachs (and sometimes livers) always leave happy!
