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.

Always our favorite Tex Mex in NOLA. Consistent quality. Very friendly. We visit often, and they always remember us and welcome us back.

Nice atmosphere and margaritas are always so good! Food & service was great! It was a good choice for Mother’s Day!

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.

Our server was very good. But the meal, cleanliness and overall experience was mediocre. Sad but true.

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.

The food was, as always, delicious. The atmosphere is most inviting. Our server on this visit was Louis. He was the most attentive (without disturbing us) and best server we could have hoped for. He was so great, we can’t wait to return.

If you’re a Texan in New Orleans and looking for good Mexican food - don’t come here. Food was weak. Service and hostess were cold and methodical. Very unfortunate choice.

The frozen sangria was delicious it was the first time I got that. Cheese sauce, salsa & chips were very fresh and tasty. The taco, chicken enchilada, and carne asada enchilada was delicious. We enjoyed sitting on the patio on a nice cool afternoon.

Unfortunately I have to give this place a 1 because I will never return-made the mistake of going there after being a long time supporter of superior seafood which is always a stellar experience. I have my friend in from Mexico and thought we would give this place a shot. I can appreciate that we arrived 30 minutes prior to closing time but the waitress was the most rude waitress I think I’ve ever had in my life. She was clearly upset that we came in fairly close to closing time, rushed us on putting in an order, threw the food down on the tables and not once said thank you or any manners of any kind. New Orleans takes great pride on friendliness and-service and this person was the opposite of both. As the CEO of an organization in the service industry, I would’ve fired this person on the spot had I witnessed these behaviors - management needs to be ashamed of something like this. Embarrassed to be a local and even more embarrassed that my friend had to be subjected to this.

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.

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.
