5 Great Places to Get a Steak Near Fort Hood, Texas
Finding Your Way Here.
How did you find this HubPages' Hub article?
Texas is known for many different culinary delicacies, but none more popular or tasty than a traditional steak. While I don't personally live in Texas, my first visit there came while my husband was training for his year long deployment, with the United States' Army, to Kuwait. Just prior to his leaving the United States, we made it a priority to spend our last few days remaining together indulging in the cultural delicacies of Texas. With exception to a single visit to an Olive Garden for a little Italian food diversity, this following list is composed of steakhouses that we had visited together prior to his departure. Beyond the five restaurants specifically listed in this article, there are a wide variety of good steak restaurants in the vicinity of Fort Hood, mainly in Killeen, which can suit a multitude of tastes and budgets.
