“The house used in the original 1974 film”

This was the house used in the original 1974 Texas Chainsaw Massacre film. When filming took place, the house was originally in Round Rock, Texas. In 1988, the house was moved to its current location. All of the locations reside in the heart of the central Texas Hill country.  This part of Texas is widely known as the most beautiful and visually stunning areas in all of Texas. The house now operates as the Grand Central Cafe.

Pretty awesome! Watched the movie trailer, def same house. Got there during the night when it was closed but pretty erie regardless. Apparently it's some sort of cafe now... Entrance reads "Grand Central Cafe". We had to look for the house, it's not clearly marked. Drive straight through the entrance and you'll see it on the left with a parking lot to pull into.

Oh HELL YES! This was one of my favorite places to visit on my latest trip to Texas. I had lunch here in September 2014 with my 11-month-old son and it was INCREDIBLE! I got the bacon burger and a Leatherface Lemonade (basically lemonade with whiskey).

The house is exactly like it looks in the movie except for all the corpses and taxidermies animals. Texas Chainsaw Massacre is one of my favorite horror movies and actually one of my favorite movies period, so I was super giddy to have the chance to visit.

The house was filmed in Round Rock, Texas, but then moved here in Kingsland in 1988. It's a historic house, famous not just for being in the movie. The waitstaff sadly had never watched the film, but they let me take so many pictures and even took some pics of me and my little boy.

HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend eating here. The food was seriously awesome. One of the best burgers ever. And the fries were fresh-cut and super good too. I can't wait to go back!!!!

It has a "Grand Central Cafe" sign hanging off the house but it is still clearly the one from the original movie. The Cafe wasn't open when I went apparently it is only open Wednesdays through Sundays but the outside looks just like the movie and I'm glad I stopped.

It was moved there in 1998, not 1988, according to Wikipedia.
