Superior Grill - Shreveport Fire

Superior Grill, a beloved culinary destination on Line Ave. in Shreveport, will temporarily close following a recent fire incident on February 15th. The establishment anticipates a closure period of 2-3 weeks as it addresses extensive roof and smoke damage resulting from the unfortunate event.

The fire, suspected to have been ignited by an electrical problem near the roof, prompted swift action from both patrons and staff. While the fire occurred during operational hours, no injuries were reported thanks to the quick response and coordination of individuals on-site.
