Stay the Night at The Texas Chain Saw Massacre Gas Station

Do you like horror films? Did you watch the 1974 classic horror film The Texas Chain Saw Massacre? Personally I stray from things I cannot unsee. For you horror flick genre lovers, here is a refresher!

Are you brave enough?

After you view the official trailer below, do you think you’ll be brave enough to eat BBQ and stay in one of the creepy cabins behind the legendary gas station?

Located right off Highway 304 in Bastrop, Texas, is the scariest gas station in pop culture history and a Facebook landmark. The site has been restored to original quality. In 2016, the proprietors held the official grand reopening. And yes, they added four eerie cabins on the property so true Texas Chain Saw Massacre fans can spend a night. No thanks!

Check out their Facebook page to view videos that showcase the main character from the film wielding a chain saw. Yep, fun for the whole family – YIKES! All jokes and eerieness aside, this would definitely make for a fun stop on your road trip this year.

Interested in how to contact the new horror resort? The phone number to book a reservation is 1-512-321-SAWS (7297).

They also offer BBQ. There’s a sign out front that says “We Slaughter Barbecue.” Of course, they do. You will be greeted warmly


Texas Chain Saw Massacre true?

Many believe that the film was based on the true story of Ed Gein who is suspected to have taken several victims between 1954 and 1957. Click here to learn more.
