KILLEEN, Texas — In the downtown quadrant of Killeen Texas, you’ll find a fine food establishment that does not attract a hive of scum and villainy, it brings in burger lovers.
Jaime Myers is one of the owners here and she works side by side with her fellow far away galaxy good friend Veictor. This is Galaxy’s second location, the first being in Harker Heights.
Well we’ll throw it into hyper drive for a hot hamburger with one heck of a name: The Outer Rim. A quarter pound patty of 90/10 beef gets seasoned and hits the cast iron cooker. As it cooked, Veictor cleared his mind and told us the real inspiration behind his bold burgers.
“My mom always told me, you know, she said ‘Si sabes cocinar, nunca morirás de hambre,’” Veictor said. “If you know how to cook, you’ll never die of hunger. … So ever since then I’ve never ever doubted myself and I can go upon the limits every time. My expectations of my food.”
Four massive tortillas land on the grill and get filled with Colby jack cheese, while the burger is topped with swiss. The queso filled quesadillas will bring balance to the burger, serving as the bun. Top those with the burger, lettuce, tomatoes, and a homemade spicy ranch aioli.
“It’s just cool and the burgers are so good,” Carola said.
So we will land on in, with the Outer Rim burger. A quesadilla with a burger inside of it. Quesadillas on both sides, a crazy looking concoction. It’s like the cross section of the Millennium Falcon. Well, it’s time to see if we can kick this into light speed. BITE.
“I just like a good burger,” Scooby said. I just like good burgers. They give you a good burger.”
Well, there’s no reason to go to a galaxy far, far away, Galaxy Burger is right here in Killeen and it’s well worth a stop on a Texas bucket list.
“May the fork be with you, I guess would be the only thing I have left to say,” Jamie said.
