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.

Restaurant is beautiful, and service was perfect. Some of the food items needed improvement: queso was too thin, rack of ribs ($31) was overcooked (= very little meat left on the bone). And, what Mexican restaurant worth its salt doesn’t have a super hot hot sauce – even if it’s just the habanero bottled version?

The woman who served us was great and the food was really good but the room we were put in was louder than the Superdome and there was no where else indoors to sit that was any quieter.

Usually trips to Superior Grill meet expectation but not on the latest visit. Service was spotty, with the waitress disappearing several times for long periods, and the margaritas were incredibly inconsistent. The first top shelf margarita was on point but not the second, so much so that I couldn't even detect any alcohol. Had to order several shots of tequila on the side to make the drink something more than sugary juice. Disappointing.

The service was excellent, as was the food. They were very safe with Covid precautions and that did not affect the ambience. Will dine there again soon.

Food was good and spicy but the service staff was lacking the " bring the best" to the table. As far as restaurants go they all have good food, the difference is how guest are serviced when they drop 100.00 for two which included one app and one plate and two rounds of cocktails. I have reservations and this is the seat way in the back like we were put in a dark corner and left to fend for ourselves. No...the service was rather disappointing as we had to continue to ask the waiter to please take care of our needs.

We do date night once a week and I was really wanting a Superior margarita! Sarah, our waitress, was great. Fast, attentive, super sweet, couldn’t have been any better! Something new I tried were the Ahi Tuna Tacos and they were alright, I wish they would have had More sauce. We love Superior and are frequent diners, we can’t wait to be back.

The restaurant staff had did everything with great efficiency. From the moment of arrival the hostess on duty located my reservation and quickly got me seated and the busser brought chips, salsa, and water as soon as I was seated. Our server, Marie, was just awesome...had a can do attitude and made frequent checks to be sure we did not want for anything while we dined. These factors are why I always enjoy Superior Grill.

Me gusto mucho el sabor de la comida, el precio de acuerdo a la calidad.

No me gusto que los meseros no usan mascarilla, ya que ellos hablan encima de la comida cuando te esta atendiendo.

Too noisy music was so loud felt like I was in a nightclub. Killed the ambience. Also waiter seemed less than enthusiastic about service and more engaged with other customers. Not sure what that was about ?? Loved the food and I will return again. I am a repeat customer

Service was outstanding. We had the mesquite grilled steak (outstanding, highly recommend), the ahi tuna tacos (also very good, but could have used more sauce) and the stuffed shrimp fajitas (pretty good, wouldn’t order again). Cheese dip, guacamole and margaritas. Had a wonderful time.

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

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.
