Texas Chainsaw Massacre BBQ

This place is no longer an open establishment! The signs are down and the building is posted with no trespassing warnings. Will take a bit of an imagination to picture its glory days in the film.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre BBQ/Gas station

We checked this place out and it had just closed its doors as a resale shop. We asked the woman inside if we could take pictures and she agreed, but didn't seem happy about it. She did say she was going to lease it out... someone needs to open a horror-themed bar.

Pam and Cal couldn't sell the store so they opened up a RESALE shop in it.

Bilbo's Texas Landmark.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre BBQ

The BBQ - Gas station used in Tobe Hooper's 1974 movie "Texas Chainsaw Massacre," most recently named "Bilbo's Texas Landmark," appears to have closed sometime in 2006. Signs indicate it's for sale and it looks mostly unchanged physically from the time the movie was filmed (although the gas pumps are now missing).
