Well it looks like there is a new restaurant coming. It’s one that horror fans will be joyous about too. According to the March 29 report from the Wrap and the March 30 report from “The Rolling Stone,” the Last Chance Gas Station is reopening into a BBQ restaurant . The Last Chance Gas Station as fans of the 1974 “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” movie know is run by the character Drayton Sawyer. It was Jim Siedow who played Drayton in the original movie. Well after awhile the place was abandoned and basically falling apart.
Roy Rose, an Ohio businessman and lifetime fan was the one who bought the property. The new place will be called, We Slaughter Barbecue. Rose also wants the place to double as a music venue and a motel. He wants to put cabins out in the back for visitors. There will also be a shop that will have memorabilia from Tobe Hooper’s film, What’s also neat about this project is Ari Lehman has signed on as a partner of the new business. He’s known for playing Jason Voorhess in the first “Friday the 13th” movie.
We Slaughter Barbecue is suppose to open this summer too. The location of the place is in Barstop, Texas. Those who are interested can click here, to get updates from their Facebook Page.
