Killeen has a few nice areas, but there are a lot of dangerous areas. There are a lot of options as far as places to eat. It is heavily military with Ft. Hood just next door. The mall is decent for this area, meaning it has more open stores than closed ones. Traffic from Ft. Hood can be quite bad at times.

There is a reason the local hospital is referred to as Murderplex (Metroplex). There are some really rough areas, especially at night.
