Most authentic Mexican food in the greater Birmingham area. Salsa is wonderful with fresh tortilla chips.

Many people think Superior Grill is a pick up joint for singles or a large bar. Not so. Superior Grill actually has a large restaurant on the premises, in addition to the bar. The food is very good and the service is usually very good too. No one has better salsa or chips! We have been going here for many... More

Came here for dinner because traffic was awful and I didn't want to drive anymore. They do have a pretty good menu selection but I've definitely had better food before. I had the chimichanga (large - note the "regular" size is one and the large is two, but they are quite small).

Steak fajitas did not disappoint me and my daughter. We however were very disappointed that valet damaged our car. I called Superior and they gave me number for valet company. Three months later car is still damaged.

We were passing through town and decided to put our lives on the line to travel on Hwy 280 for supper. The Superior Grill had lots of vibrant colors and a full parking lot (we parked across the street in the overflow lot) so we decided to give it a try. The cheese dip was very flavorable, but the find... More

We are regulars to Superior Grill. If you know what to order, it can be the best Mexican food of your life! However, the service isn't always that great and it can be a bit pricey. Highly recommend the steak fajitas and cheese dip. Also, great margaritas (worth the splurge)!

This restuarant looks like a copy of Papasitos in Houston. Unfortunately their serving remind you of an over priced French restuarant. The kinda-mex food is nothing special.

Hillary gave the absolute worst bar service with an "un-crowded" bar. I was left to think if I were a "regular customer" service would have been better. Much appreciative of the customer sitting at the bar who brought us our chips and salsa. In fact, he was taken aback by the fact that she just threw the chips and salsa... More

There were five of us and we all had good food. The service was attentive and everything went OK. We were seated in the heated patio which I had no problems with. There were two big birthday parties there and they let the kids run wild. We couldn't have a conversation. I complain to the Manager and he did nothing.... More

This place is spectacular. It came highly recommended by a family member, and my wife and I were not disappointed. Superior Grill is not your typical canned refried beans, boxed yellow rice, jalapeño and cream queso Mexican restaurant; they are making genuine food here. You would expect this fact to be reflected in the menu pricing, but my wife and... More
