Harker Heights Twin Peaks turned into Richard Rawlings restaurant; Waco location still on market

“Fast N’ Loud” fans in Texas will soon have another way to show their love for the show.

Richard Rawlings, host of “Fast N’ Loud” and owner of the Gas Monkey Garage brand, announced Tuesday that he has purchased one of two closed Twin Peaks restaurants and will open a new restaurant in its place, according to KHOU.

The Richard Rawlings Garage will have its grand opening Aug. 10 in Harker Heights, near Fort Hood, and will focus on American food like burgers, brisket and beer.

The Harker Heights location and the Waco location, where a deadly shootout between rival biker gangs and police left nine dead and 20 injured last year, were both ordered closed by Twin Peaks’ corporate office following the shootings. The Waco property never reopened and is still on the market.

“Harker Heights is in the heart of Texas, right next to Fort Hood, which is the largest active-duty armored post in the United States Armed Services,” Rawlings told the Dallas Morning-News. “I am excited and looking forward to serving good food to good people, and I can’t think of anywhere else I would rather have the first location of Richard Rawlings’ Garage be.”

Rawlings buys and sells fixed-up old cars on his Discovery Channel show, “Fast N’ Loud,” and also operates the Gas Monkey Bar N’ Grill in Dallas, which features his Gas Monkey Tequila brand.
