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.

We were pleasantly seated a few minutes before our reservation. The restaurant was clean, service was very good, and presentation of the plates was as nice as the food was palatable. Highly recommend!

We arrived early for our reservation but, we were seating immediately. No one came to our table the first 15 minutes we were there. The service was very slow but, it seemed our waitress had a 10 top inside and we were seated at the far end of the patio. It really wasn't fair to the waitress. Overall, I'd visit again. I loved the huge patio, the music, and the onion soup. Our waitress was super kind, too.

About the restaurant
Bobby Hebert's Cajun Cannon Restaurant and Grill is a creole sports bar that is fun and serves tasty food. The staff makes everyone feel welcome, whether they are a regular or a newcomer. Since Bobby Hebert's is kid-friendly, it is a fantastic place for families to stop by for a delicious meal and enjoy each other's company. There are so many tasty offerings at Bobby Hebert's. The seafood gumbo is a must try, as are the Cajun French fries. Seafood lovers should check out the crab cakes with mushroom cream sauce or the barbecue shrimp. The restaurant does not skimp on dessert options! The Oreo crumble cake is mouthwatering and is covered with chocolate. The Kentucky bourbon pecan pie is topped with a lovely scoop of ice cream. For a classic, customers can't go wrong with the bandit's root beer float.
