This location of Black Meg 43 is now closed for good. They closed their doors two weeks ago. Hand-written signs on both doors that read "Sorry, we are closed." I called the Copperas Cove location. They confirmed that the Harker Heights location is permanently closed....The location in Killeen on Rancier Avenue is still open.More

First, all of the food was good. Some was just warm versus hot but still could tell it would have tasted wonderful hot. The problem was, went in with large group, 19 people, and it took almost 2 1/2 hours for everyone to get their...food. Not very enjoyable, half were eating while half were enviously looking on and then many sat for long time with nothing to do but watch others wait for their food. Just an FYI, they will ask you what kind of cheese you want on your hamburger, but no matter what you tell them, you get American. Happened to 6 of us that all ordered different kinds of the supposedly available choices of cheese.More

I have come to Black Meg 3 times. I know, shame on me. But the first time, 15 minute wait before someone came out of the back to take my order. Second time, no one even acknowledged me waiting.... again 15 minutes. Today, I must...have inconvenienced the girl at the counter because she was less that personable. Worst customer service from a small restaurant in the HH area. I will not be bringing my family back to Black Meg until I know serious changes to the staff have been made. But the food is good. So there's that.More

My 11 and 13 year olds love the food here! I love beating my kids real food! So much better than the fake food at the golden arches. Burgers are made to order, the fries taste fresh, and if you like chicken it's really good...too! Try them out, now I think I've tried every location and the food is consistently good.More

One of the worst burgers I ever had.Service was bad. Place was dirty. You could't pay me to go back there and try it again.

Great hamburgers and fresh cut French fries! Fried pickles wonderful! Clean... Fine to take kids! The customer service is ok... been there at times when we were treated rude but other times good service. Good prices

What you get here is a decent burger that's juicy (sometimes messy) and cooked well and some seasoned fries. Among places that serve seasoned fries I put these among the best. The burger is up there, though it doesn't necessarily stand out. But Black Meg's...is usually a better value than most. The prices have gone up since it first opened, but you still save significantly compared to other similar casual burger places. The main issue I have at Black Meg's is the dining area. The look is dated and has a greasy feel to it. And the last couple of times I've been there tables were dirty (they keep minimal staff on hand, so cleaning the dining area comes after orders are prepared). And it's somewhat annoying to eat your meal and look over at a dirty table next to you. So now I usually take mine to go, but it's worth it.More

My family and I love the customer service, I love the burger, my wife loves the chicken, my older daughter loves the hot dog kids meal, and when I let my younger daughter try her first taste of hamburger here, she acted like she couldn't...get enough. All in all, my family of 4 can eat for under $20, with much higher quality food than a national burger chain across the street. We go several times a month.More

First time in 5 years visiting the restaurant. Very busy for 1:30 in afternoon! Guy behind counter taking orders was enjoyable, informative, and fast. Good environment for a burger joint. Burger was good, but I like a little more char on my beef than they...had today. Didn't know to ask but will next time. Meg sauce was very tasty. Fries are seasoned with ?? but would like to buy a shaker of ?? - it was really good! Will look forward to returning, but let's not make it 5 years...More

When I was first introduced to Black Meg 43 in Spring 2014, you'd get a scrumptious cheeseburger, fries and a drink for 5 bucks (coined the "cheeseburger combo" special) and I've been bringing BM to eat with my son at school every Friday since..... But...then the special went up to 5.50...then to $5.50 for a hamburger combo and an extra $0.45 for cheese (making it 5.95). Then when I returned (perhaps for the last time) last Friday, the Hamburger Combo is now $6 - and an extra $.45 for cheese, so the cheeseburger combo is now priced at $6.45, and other combo's are even more more expensive. In a matter of six months, Black Meg 43's price on the "cheeseburger special" has increased 29% and as a result has gone from being a terrific bargain and great burger, to eh, not so much....and the quality of the burger quality itself, while still good, has deteriorated over my last few visits. Fries are great but were so soggy with grease last time that it dissolved the brown paper wrapper. Counter staff is always very friendly, but my visits will become less frequent.More
