The Best Damn Waffles In Texas Can Be Found At A Gas Station
During A Recent Trip To Central Texas, right in the middle between Waco, TX and Austin, TX, I visited one of my favorite "family owned" restaurants, specializing in ONE specific type of breakfast food!
If you ever find yourself in the Killeen, Texas area if you ask around for a great place for breakfast you might get a few answers but one sure shot answer you will receive is "The Waffle Den".
The Waffle Den Is Famous For Their Amazing Flavored Waffles.
The business started over a decade ago inside a Killeen convenience store and since that time, they've become an institution in the city. They're currently located next to a Cefco gas station in Killeen and its drive-thru only so when you pull up expect a line but the wait is worth it!
They Have Over 50 Different Varieties Of Waffle Flavors To Choose From.
Now if you're coming just to get a standard "waffle" then you need to go somewhere else because this is where FLAVOR reigns. If you take a quick look at their menu, you see a TON of different varieties and FLAVORS including Red Velvet Cake, Caramel Apple and they even have "soda flavors" like Coca-Cola and Dr. Pepper (which are my personal faves).
They're Open Wednesdays Through Sundays.
On my recent visit, I chose the one that started it all "The Original" pictured above with wings. Its SUPER SOFT and sugary kind of like a combination of a beignet and a glazed donut is the best way I can describe it. But if you go, check out the menu and ask for other flavors that you might not see on the menu and they may be able to make it.
Make sure you add them to your Texas Foodie Road Trip List....
