The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Gas Station Offers BBQ and Lodging

By  | 


Horror fans can not only visit this famous location, but now they can also spend the night and eat a meal at one of the scariest gas stations in movie history. That’s right, the cult classic, “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” was filmed in Bastrop, Texas at this small yet terrifying gas station that has been renovated into a getaway for movie fans.

In 2016 a devout Chainsaw Massacre fan, Roy Rose, revamped the famed spot to give guests the full movie effect. After he purchased the station, he added the barbecue, the cabins, and brought in more replicas to spark nostalgia from the film. He even partnered with the first Jason Voorhees, from “Friday the 13th, Ari Lehman, to help give the place an exciting and horrific atmosphere.

Visitors can drive up to the well-known Coca-Cola machine and take a look at the replica van each featured in the iconic movie. The station guarantees the chills and thrills for horror fanatics, but you don’t have to be a horror fan to stay there. It’s a great place to eat some sauced Texas sausage and brisket. “We Slaughter Barbecue” is the slogan, but don’t worry, the barbecue isn’t human like the cannibal family serves in the film.

It’s a must-visit for any fan of the classic horror movie The Texas Chainsaw Massacre!

This little horror station is unlike any other getaway for movie fans. Take home a souvenir of cinematic history on-site or on the online gift shop. Buy an eight-inch plank from the certified original gas station awning or get an autographed picture of the star from the movie’s sequel, Caroline Williams. After the nostalgia and a good meal, visitors can sit out on the patio and stay in a comfy eerie little cabin for the weekend. Just call 512-321-SAWS.
