The first out-of-state franchise for Bruges Waffles & Frites opened in the southwest with an upgraded name and menu, but the same commitment to European-style casual dining.

Bruges Belgian Bistro takes over a 903-square-foot space at 5660 Hualapai Way, close to the intersection with Russell Road, creating a counter-service restaurant decorated with a full wall, comic book mural. The Utah-based company got its start as a vending cart.

Open daily for breakfast or an evening meal, the menu centerpiece is the fried twice, hand-cut frites, severed in small to large sizes with a dipping sauce. Hungrier diners can order the fries with meat-centric options including the $10 Machine Gun Sandwich filled with a lamb sausage on a toasted baguette, chicken tenders, burgers, a Shotgun beef patty and a Belgian dog featuring curry ketchup, mayo and onions.

A $5 croque-monsieur with ham, provolone, jack, and cheddar cheeses, can be upgraded to a croque-madame or the $6.50 croque-Hawai‘i that adds pineapple and curry.

Vanilla or cinnamon waffles are prepared in sweet and savory dishes, including S’more, apple pie and stuffed Belgian chocolate creations, plus the stern-looking waffle monster and the bird-faced chicken & waffle plate.

Bruges Belgian Bistro, 5660 Hualapai Way, Suite #105, 702-358-0099.
