While Vacationing in and around Fort Hood… Great places for eateries……
Tham Rab Thai (254-213-4744; 1046 S Fort Hood St, Killeen, TX). They have something for everyone and it is typically very tasty. Try the papaya salad for starters, then go with the pepper steak or garlic pepper whole fried fish for your meal. Finally, don’t forget the dessert, if you’ve managed to save some room.
Head south on Fort Hood Street for some Mexican food. Taqueria Mexico Lindo (254-554-3133; 1414 S Fort Hood Street, Killeen, TX) is the place for large orders of fajitas, complemented with the homemade flour tortillas that hit the spot.
Further south on Fort Hood Street and you will come across Petty’s BBQ (254-432-7388; 1104 Kathey Dr, Killeen, TX). The brisket here is second to none and you won’t regret the green beans as a side. As with any BBQ place, they know how to brew a great sweet tea.
The Korean Kitchen (254-634-8172; 525 E Veterans Memorial Blvd, Killeen, TX) is a family owned and run restaurant that offers a variety of Korean dishes. You can’t go wrong with an order of bulgogi or kalbi. If you’re not feeling particularly adventurous, stick with the garlic chicken wings and you’ll be back for more.
If you’re staying at the Hawthorne Suites by Wyndham, located conveniently across from the Killeen Mall, you are right next to another treasure, Red Onion Indian Bistro (254-699-0006; 1908 E Central Texas Expressway, Killeen, TX). They have a great lunch buffet which is affordable and offers a huge variety of choices for the entire family. The dinner menu features food similar to what’s on the lunch buffet but cooked to order. Be sure to try the tandoori chicken or lamb, both are always cooked to perfection.
