This week, I was on a mission, I wanted to try a brand-new restaurant, one that opened in 2020 during one of the most trying times our country has seen.
It’s tough enough opening a new restaurant, but to open one just a little over a month before everything was shut down had to be extremely stressful.
Belmont’s American Eatery, located at 2540 Anthem Village Drive, Suite 100 in Henderson opened in February and the coronavirus pandemic shutdown hit in March. This family-owned restaurant is small, but the food was so good and I was glad I found the place. When I first moved to Vegas, I lived just a couple minutes away from their location and wish they were there then as I would have been a regular.
Belmont’s menu is just what their name suggests as there are a lot of American comfort food favorites and at very reasonable prices. The menu has everything — from breakfast to salads, sandwiches, pizza, burgers, wings and dinner entrees.
As I looked over the menu, I couldn’t decide what I really was hungry for and my waitress suggested to try their sampler platter to get a taste of some of their best items. Her advice was spot on as it was fabulous. The platter came with three Cheeseburger Sliders, 4 Chicken Wings and 3 BBQ Ribs along with celery and carrot sticks with Ranch or Blue Cheese Dressing.
The sliders were amazing, the ribs were good, and the wings were very good. I really enjoyed it and for $16.99, given the amount of food along with the quality, this was well worth the price. Just a tip: you may want to share this with someone as it really is a lot of food. Even though it was my dinner entree I couldn’t finish it all.
The table next to me ordered a pizza and it looked and smelled so good. I will be trying a pizza on a future visit for sure. Other items on the menu that caught my eye was their Lemon Pepper Chicken and Beef or Chicken Teriyaki Bowls. They also have steaks and seafood as well.
My waitress was very friendly. I didn’t ask her but I am really pretty sure she was the owner’s daughter, which just adds to the mom-and-pop atmosphere which I absolutely love.
If you want to enjoy a cold beer with your meal, 16 oz. domestic drafts are just $1.50 and imports are $2. Given the quality of the food, the reasonable prices and friendliness of the staff, I highly recommend Belmont’s American Eatery and give it a rating of 3.75 Forks.
