A Killeen institution

Don't let the exterior (or the interior for that matter) fool you. This place is great for good, old-fashioned comfort food.

This is one place that we go every Friday for our Catfish dinner. Fish is fried has you request, you may have notice an price hike in the last six month but its worth it. Here is somewhere to go and have a quick Catfish dinner with family try Henderson's.

If you want a family friendly atmosphere go here. Very friendly staff. We were there for breakfast. Portions sizes are great for the value. Not a disappointment. I would recommend this place to anyone.

It's great to find a good restaurant with homestyle meals when I'm on the road. My coworker mentioned this restaurant for lunch as it is very close to the office. I was pleasantly surprised! They have a very wide selection and great prices. The cook came to our table just to ask why I hadn't eaten part of my meal... More

This is not a fancy, new place by any means, but the food is good and the prices are decent!! Their catfish is very good, Friday nights is the time to get it. The staff is very friendly. It's just a hometown place to eat home style food.

I am not from the area. I just got stationed at Ft. Hood. I was looking for a place for me and my girls to eat breakfast. I pulled up to Henderson's and was excited because the parking lot was packed. I am a picky eater, and went there because of the good reviews. OMG, was I horrified. Walking inside,... More

We went for a Sunday breakfast - the food was okay but nothing to make us want to come back again. The place is old and very run down. The drink station was just plain dirty.
