Oklahoma-native Toby Keith opened Toby Keith's I Love This Bar -- Grill, at WinStar World Casino, Thackerville Monday.

Named after the singer and songwriter's hit single "I Love This Bar," the 16,000 square-foot restaurant will serve as an entertainment venue featuring live music and dancing and will feature home-cooked Southern-style fare.

The restaurant will have 16 HDTV monitors and two big screens for viewing sporting events, more than 100 pieces of Keith memorabilia, a custom motorcycle and also adorning the walls is half of the Ford truck driven by Keith in the movie, "Beer For My Horses."

WinStar World Casino is an economic enterprise of the Chickasaw Nation, and Chickasaw Nation Governor Bill Anoatubby looks forward to the addition of the restaurant.

"We are pleased to see the addition of Toby Keith's signature restaurant at WinStar," said Gov. Anoatubby. "The opening of this unique restaurant not only provides a fresh entertainment option for our patrons, it also offers a great venue for local performers to showcase their talent"

The restaurant seats 300 customers and is equipped with a VIP room that seats 75. The restaurant will provide jobs for more than 175 people.

Another important menu feature is the American Soldier Special, a nod to Keith's well-known patriotism and USO trips to entertain troops in the Middle East. A cheeseburger, Freedom Fries and a drink is served free of charge to any military personnel with valid military ID.

The WinStar location will be the sixth restaurant and bar for Keith and his third in Oklahoma. Hours of operation are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and 11 to 1:30 a.m. Friday-Saturday.
