Texas Chainsaw Massacre BBQ

Map apps generally still say it's permanently closed, but they're still open! Sells barbecue, soda, beer, and horror movie merchandise. Good to kill some time while in Bastrop.

Gas Station - Texas Chainsaw Massacre

The iconic gas station is from the opening scenes of the movie Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

Down highway 304. Someone has bought it and is in the slow process of opening it as Slaughter House BBQ, complete with the green van from the movie (on the premises) and several new cabins. They have been working on it for over a year now.

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.
