Tony Keith's I Love This Bar and Grill

Leave it to country music legend Toby Keith to create a restaurant that offers great food and, if you’re a country fan, the best live country music in Minneapolis.
Named after Toby’s hit single “I Love This Bar” this place served up a huge portion for lunch recently including this open face turkey sandwich. True to his Oklahoma roots, there was even chicken fried steak on the menu.

My sister and I opted for the bologna – a sandwich I had not eaten since I was a kid. Thick cut bologna seared with onions and American cheese were topped with Miracle whip dressing and served on grilled garlic toast.

Toby Keith’s is located at the Shops At West End at 1623 Park Place Blvd in St Louis Park in Minneapolis. The lifestyle center is currently home to the successful Cooper and Crave. A new restaurant called Ringo’s also recently opened.

The highlight: The restaurant features an 88-foot guitar-shaped bar and 38 high-definition televisions. Definitely a great spot to watch your favorite college football game.

Bon Appetit!
