Superior Grill has always been one of my favorite Mexican food places but my experience there today changed my mind. I ordered the Lunch Fajitas and a small cheese dip with a Diet Coke. The fajitas came w/a small cup of bean or tortilla soup w/ rice or beans. I ordered the Black Bean soup w/ rice. When the fajitas... More

Tasty but dried out food which was luke-cold. The portions were sufficient and the flavors mild- which I personally liked. Salsa was just right. Server looked like she was having a bad night. We tried to be pleasant but never got a response or even a weak smile. The evening traffic, though certainly not their fault, was horrendous for a... More

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.
