Best chips and salsa in birmingham

I frequent this restaurant for their chicken soup and their chips and salsa, both of which are delicious. Their steak fajitas used to be incredible, but now they've changed the way they are cooked, so they have very little flavor. Parking is an absolute nightmare on weekends and in the evening... read more

Beyond superior service! Delicious food! What more can I possibly say? Our waiter was very attentive and on top of drink refills. I would recommend to anyone who likes Mexican food to come here. I just wish I wasn't visiting briefly. I would definitely come again if I lived in the area.

Had a late lunch today at Superior.Marinated skirt steak that is usually out of this world, tasted like a tough boot. Sooo disappointed.Sent it back and only ate black bean soup and rice. It had not been marinated at all. chips and salsa are amazing. Will be a while before I return. Will give them one more try. Bummer

Love, love, love Superior Grill. Everything is excellent from the homemade chips (thin and crispy) and tortillas to the salsa and queso. My favorite two menu items are the shrimp tacos (the sauce is to die for) and the steak tenderloin medallions. I order the steak medium rare and they come out perfect every time. The garlic butter sauce that... More

It is always fun to meet friends and family for a meal at Superior Grill. I love their flank steak (I think #14, but not 100% sure), cheese enchiladas, cheese dip, their chicken soup, and their margaritas. The main thing that kept me from giving a 5 is that I wanted just one tablespoon of rice in my chicken soup,... More

Our family has eaten at the Superior Grill for over 15 years, and been very happy with the quality of food, and service. This last visit, on a quiet Saturday night, was a dud. The service was awful and the food lacking. The fajitas, which they charge $22, were undercooked and anything but piping hot. The queso was also lukewarm,... More

It was a great atmosphere and from the road it looks really neat. We tried the food and it's basically an ol elpaso t.v. dinner. We were not impressed AT ALL. The fajitas where mesquite flavored (yuck) and definitely under cooked and the #4 wasn't good either. Pretty dissapointed but there are others so we will continue to search for... More

I've been here a few times. Sometimes a date night and sometimes with the whole family. Our whole family likes the food. Some items are better than others though. Food comes out quick and service is good even when busy. Plenty of space and different setting areas too. They have good specialty burritos and fajitas but I thought the chicken... More
