Horror fans know and love Tobe Hooper’s 1974 film The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, but what they may not be aware of is that the original house is available to visit. Moreover, you can actually sit down and re-enact the dinner scene!

The Victorian Queen Anne style cottage was originally erected around 1909.  It originally existed in Williamson County which is currently Round Rock Texas. The dwelling has served as a home to multiple families over the years, in addition to being used during the production of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.

The Junction House Restaurant closed its doors in 2012 but reopened in 2013 as the Grand Central Cafe. Although human flesh isn’t on the menu you can tuck into decently priced breakfast, steaks and burgers. When making reservations, be sure to request sitting in the “Kingsville” room – that’s where the infamous dining room scenes int Texas Chain Saw Massacre were filmed.
