Gosh; just don't ask any locals in Brussels. You're likely to start a fight.

This is very emotive subject.

I've haven't lived or been in BRussels for a number of years, but I can't remember ever getting a bad dish of moules frites there - ever!

Most places serve a decent version. It is difficut to go to wrong. Locals all have their favourite place but usually it is noting to do with the muscles and relates to the choice of sauce, type of chips or atmosphere of the place.
