Life is so busy in our house that I must plan meals in advance and or start them early in the morning (in the crockpot) or rely on that nifty 'Kids Eat Free - or Cheap' list I made. This pasted Thursday I relyed on that list and we went to Fuddruckers! If you have never been to Fuddruckers it is worth a try. They claim to have to have the "World's Greatest Burgers". I would have to disagree, even though their burgers are good, I know of a few places that have rival their burgers, one of those places being Denton Independent Hamburger - but if you want that burger you will need to drive to Denton, Texas to pick one up. I also think Chili's has a pretty darn good hamburger.
The thing I do LOVE about Fuddruckers is that they use fresh, never frozen 100% all American beef that is raised humanely, their cattle are free roaming and eat nothing but a vegetarian diet with no additives or animal by-products. Their burgers come in 4 different sizes, 1/3, 1/2, 2/3 and 1pound patties - grilled to order. Oh and I love that they have kids eat cheap on Thursday nights!
At Fuddruckers you build your own burger - they have a great selection of fresh veggies to add to your burger - nice juicy red tomatoes, three types of lettuce, onions, banana peppers, salsa, pickles and much more!
Now this kid's meal was a little lacking and I TRIED to talk my kids out of getting the mozzarella sticks, but they really wanted them so I gave in. Next time I will not give in as this meal didn't even come close to filling up my little ones, but they did like them.
My burger & fries were more than enough. I got the 1/3 pound Fudds deal with mushroom and Swiss. When I saw the fries, I wasn't too excited, as steak fries are my least favorite fry - however these were very good! I loved the seasoning they put on them.
The deal: Buy one 'Fudd Deal' (a burger, fries and drink), get one kids meal for .99 cents. In my opinion the Fudd deals are a little pricy - the 1/3lb burger deal starting at $9.25, but then I added Swiss and mushroom and it cost another 1.50, bring my Fudd deal up to $10.75.
For the 5 of us, we bought 2 Fudd deals, got 2 kid meals for .99 cents each and paid regular price for a 3rd kids meal ($4.45) all for a grand total of $28.61.
All in all it was a pretty good meal, (with the exception of the kids needing a snack when we got home) and I didn't have to cook. I give it 3 thumbs up out of 5.
While eating at my favorite little Pho restaurant here in Killeen, Pho Saigon, I almost felt like I was back in Korea (yes, I know Pho comes from Vietnam, not Korea) - check out the menu...
In my opinion this place has the best & most authentic Pho in Killeen – and their spring rolls are my favorite! If you find yourself in Killeen and you are looking for a good Pho, don't hesitate to give Pho Saigon a try, even if they don't have someone as English as their first language as their editor - that just adds to the charm!

I have a new crush and his name is Joe. Joe makes a mean & cheap, or should I say 'inexpensive' pizza. Inexpensive is a better word as Joe does not skimp on ingredients. I love all the cheesy goodness Joe brings to the table.
Since finding Joe's we have ordered from him at least 5 times. (We found him a month ago...don't judge me.)This picture makes my mouth water. Give me a little grease, cheese & pepperoni & I'm in heaven! Plus when I can feed this family of 6 for under $20 I am one happy camper!
You can eat in or take out Joe's Pizza, oh and he has WAY more than pizza, we've had his calzones ($5.50)...
and stromboli (5.95)....
His spinach rolls are a little slice of heaven, but I do have to say I won't be ordering his desserts again. Don't get me wrong, they aren't bad, I'm just way picky when it comes to cannolis and tiramisu.
So, if you are looking for good pizza in the Killeen/Ft. Hood area, Joe's is the place to go! He is located at 408 N Fort Hood Street in Killeen, Texas. 254-432-6070 Enjoy!
