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.

Superior Grill is one of our favorite dining spots. Food is wonderful, Atmosphere is Great and the Waite Staff are such hardworkers and we greatly appreciate their hard work especially being short staffed.

With high hopes we went for the first time. The hostess did not ask for our vaccination proof-a definite no-no in New Orleans and many of the staff did not wear masks. Our server though wearing one used it below her nose which continued even after my admonition. The food is typical American homogenized Mexican and was not particularly special though the nachos were delicious. We were placed on the indoor patio which seemed to attract a number of crying babies, so the indoors seemed attractive but didn't serve as our destination.

My kids love this cuisine so we were excited to try. It was pretty good. The salsa is a bit too tomato-paste tasting. My kids enjoyed their food. The server was having what appeared to be a rough day, which happens. But we had to ask a few times for drink refills. Not a huge big deal, but we felt like we were bothering him by wanting more than one glass of water.

Very good TexMex food, but a little pricey. $75 for a dinner for two with one appetizer and no drinks. Portions were ample, service was fast.

Food was not authentic Mexican.
Not spicy at all! Blend no taste.
Too much cheese and flavor was missing.
Even mix drink was like lemonade!
The price is Ala Carte!
The only thing they did not charge was water!
Set next too a family celebrating Birthday but after a while that got too much!

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.

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?
