Great people here! This place is super creepy when you walk up. And it looks abandoned. Walk in and look around. Don has great stories and excellent BBQ.

Gas Station From Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003)

Friendly people and lots of cool items that represent all of the eras and industries in the area. We had BBQ on a Saturday, showed up about 10 minutes before closing but the food was very good (sausage and brisket).

Gas Station From Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003)

This is a restaurant now. The authentic, Texas-style BBQ is fabulous -- just the smell will make your mouth water. The people are extremely nice, and bought us beers and gave us a tour. This establishment has actually been used for multiple films. Really, if you have time, come out here!

Shooting location for Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2003 film.

Gas Station From Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003)

This is the original building from the scenes in the 2003 production of Texas Chainsaw Massacre featuring the creepy gas station. It is still just as creepy, especially at night. During the day it is an operating general store/country diner (emphasis on COUNTRY). Secondhand Lions was also filmed near here, which the owner will tell you all about.

The building was originally built in 1891, as the Richland Saloon. There is a picture on the wall of the original saloon, and even though the building has been added onto over the years you can still see it in the inside architecture. The people, kitsch, and atmosphere will have you wanting to stay for hours. It's a little out in the country but only about 35-40 minutes from downtown Austin.
