Donny Brook: The location is off of Rocky Creek Road about 0.60 of a mile North of HWY 71 and 300- feet East of Rocky Creek Road. It is private property and that's serious in Texas, so stay off.
Plenty of old timers around these parts who had their unofficial 18th. birthdays at the ranch. It was legal to drink at 18 YO old in Texas at the time and many of the boys visited the place. One story was that the girls were coeds at from A & M which drew in the boys of UT. The other story was the girls were UT coeds which attracted the A & M fellas. The truth I'm told was that the girls hailed from Southwest Texas State University, now named Texas State University-San Marcos.
Remember, it is private property.
Mike Mcgee: We now have official Chicken Ranch T-shirts for sale .

Marty Clabaugh-Leverington: I would like to find out who owns the land now...
1971SuperLead: I feel a sadness as I gaze onto a building that was used for such a sad purpose and then just left to be vandalized, stripped and weather beaten. There's just no sign of hope or decency anywhere.
forced2dothis: yes its right off HWY 71 down a dirt road.
Lumilan: Is this the place ZZ top sang about?
JRBROOKS42: My grandparents lived in a 100 year old farmhouse from 1971-mid 80's. It was also off of 71, outside La Grange past the Colorado river before you get to Plum. Funny thing is I never knew about the ranch until I saw the movie. It was never spoken of.
Alberta Rose: Be cool if they did a sequel to the movie, maybe the plot is some guy running for Sheriff and his opponent is the grandson of Melvin P. Thorpe who is hassling him because his Grandmother was a whore. Burt could take his Grandson to the original location shown in your video, Dolly could be the Grandmother with the saucy tongue who does a lousy job of keeping her past quiet.
Rosy Lee: all the memories left behind, if only that old house could talk.
Tim Fowler: Thanks for the upload. Some pretty damn good footage
redmustang03: @overzealousarborist, yep La Grange.
Banjo Jones: that was good.
James Johnson: hey didn't ZZ top make a song about this place?
