NORTH SHELBY – A popular Tex-Mex restaurant on U.S. 280 in Shelby County has closed its doors after nearly three decades in business.

Superior Grill closed on Sunday, July 31, according to a post on the restaurant’s Facebook page.

“Our first words must be thank you,” the post read. “Thank you Birmingham for 27 years of fun, friendships and family. #SuperiorBirmingham is officially closed.”

The announcement drew numerous comments and reactions online from former customers, many of whom shared fond memories from eating at the restaurant, a longtime landmark along the 280 corridor because of its brightly-lit, colorful façade.

In addition to serving lunch and dinner, Superior Grill built a reputation as a live music and large party venue.

“You have been the main ingredient for unforgettable memories in this wonderful city,” the restaurant’s final post read. “Come visit us at our Louisiana locations: Shreveport, Baton Rouge, New Orleans and Lafayette (coming soon).”

Superior’s Birmingham location had operated since 1995.
