Superior Grill Lafayette, Louisiana

Louisiana's love affair with Superior Grill's life-changing fajitas and Superior margaritas began with the first location in Shreveport back in 1983.

Success came fast, and less than 10 years later in 1991, Superior Grill opened up their second location in Baton Rouge.

This Baton Rouge location instantly became the restaurant's marquis location and established itself as a true Louisiana landmark due to its unforgettably delicious Mexican cuisine and amazingly festive atmosphere.

From superiorgrill.com -

"We’re famous for our sizzling fajitas and Superior margaritas. Our margaritas are made with freshly squeezed lime juice, and our food is made fresh, from scratch every day.

For added flavor, all of our meats are prepared over a mesquite grill. We are proud of what we make and how we prepare it."

For decades, Superior Grill fans in Lafayette and Acadiana have happily taken the quick drive down I-10 to get their "Superior" fix, but then it was announced the beloved restaurant would be expanding operations to Lafayette.

In 2022, Superior Grill announced they would be taking over the location previously occupied by Lafayette institution Randol's Restaurant, and ever since we've all been driving by to check out the construction progress.

For about the past year, one of the most frequently asked questions around Lafayette has been "Hey, when is Superior Grill gonna open?"

While we don't have an official opening date for Superior Grill in Lafayette, we can tell you, it looks like the wait is almost over.

We were recently lucky enough to get a sneak-peak inside Superior Grill on Kaliste Saloom, and the folks at Superior were awesome enough to let us take a few photos to share with you!

LOOK: 35 Vintage Cereals That Perfectly Captured Pop Culture Moments

Movies and TV shows have always found ways to partner with cereal companies as part of their promotion strategy.

Here are vintage cereals that were used to promote some of pop culture's biggest moments (and some you probably forgot about).
