We have stopped here several times. They have outdoor dining down. G ordered the puffy taco with ground need. Looked yummy. Wasn't what he expected, but still good. I tend to get tortilla soup wherever we go. Their version is good, the chicken could be a little better quality. Their Superior Margarita is tasty and refreshing. Will go back. Always... More

Food is good. The service is terrible. Slow waitress with no apology or explanation. Ridiculous over charges like $2 for sour cream. Eat here if you're just in it for the food. If you can put up with the ridiculousness, go for it. But if you're impatient and unwilling to put up with the idiocy (like myself), just skip it.

We always try to eat at the Superior Grill when we are in Birmingham, and it never disappoints! The food is always delicious. Their chips and salsa is always good. The steak fajitas - with tender, melt in your mouth steak, melted butter, homemade tortillas and good guacamole - are SO good! The service is good, and the staff has... More

I am jealous that my town doesn't have a place like this. Fresh flour tortillas, great margaritas, super large fajitas (please split these with someone. It's more meat than a normal human should eat.) It's busy but we sat down immediately.

This place is has the best margaritas and fajitas around! The atmosphere is casual and lively. Some nights they have live music on the patio. It's a perfect spot to celebrate a birthday. They can seat large groups together. I give it a 9.5 out of 10!

This is my favorite Tex-Mex restaurant of all time. I grew up going to the original one in Shreveport, LA. Any time we are in Birmingham, we make a special trip here and it never disappoints. The chicken enchiladas are always delicious, as well as the fajitas and black bean soup. The salsa is the best ever and is worth... More

Superior was within walking distance of my hotel so I have it a try. The restaurant was hopping but since I was traveling alone for work I found a space at the bar. The younger bartender couldn't make a very dry martini (yes, I get the irony but it was the mood I was in)and made a dirty martini (happens... More

One of my favorite restaurants. The fajitas are enough to share, I prefer the steak. Have the chicken soup that comes with fajitas, it is delicious. The chips and salsa are fresh tasting. Margaritas are very good and they don't skimp on the tequila like some places tend to. There is a patio and some nights live music that is... More

I got the steak fajitas for lunch passing through. They were awesome, and I wound up eating them all by myself. Watch out for add-ons as they will beef up your bill. I asked for some salsa not knowing that there was an additional charge. I came out spending a little over $21 for lunch with tip and all which... More

There are so many good things to say about Superior Grill it's hard to know where start. Fabulous homemade tortilla chips and cheese dip!!!! Hint: Don't waste your time with a small cup order the large and take the rest home, it heats up great! If cheese dip isn't for you the salsa is outstanding! The Puffy Chicken Taco is... More
