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.

What a gem - St Charles Ave.- authentic Mexican and fantastic margheritas - one is enough as very large and potent - I will be back next time in New Orleans - 6 of us visited and all really liked the atmosphere, food and service was spot on - Thumbs up!!

Looked out the window and there were 2 horses with cowboys trotting down the street - not something you see everyday in NOLA lol

The food was excellent. Service was a little slow, not because of our server, but, more in the kitchen. We attribute that more to Covid and the challenge of getting good people than a bad service standard.

Menu and drinks are a little higher than most mexican restaurants but the quality of food makes it understandable.

I always go to Superior Grill for happy hour. We arrived 20 minutes before 6. It was slow and dead in there, our server Sara passed us up several times until
She finally came and took drink order. When she came back I inquired if she had charged us happy hour specials…she didn’t! Jokingly I said wow, guess I will deduct from your tip.

We ordered a guac, queso, and ceviche app, la Tampiquena as our entree. It was not sizzling when it came out! Dead skillet, was served!!! I worked in a Tex Mex restaurant for almost 10 years as a busser, server, and runner. I also worked in kitchen placing food on tray to run, and would have never sent a skillet of fajitas dead like that with no sizzle and if I was a server I wouldn’t have ran it out to any table like that! Sara was nice , but nope she doesn’t pull that move on charging for drinks as reg price when the table was there way before happy hour ending. It was soooo slow, no music and also noticed another table did get a sizzling fajita plate. I still tipped her $18 on a ticket of $110. I was disappointed I brought my date here and the experience was not all that like I made it known. Step it up Sara.

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?

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.

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.
