Toby Keith’s Closing


Only 2 1/2 years after opening, Toby Keith’s I Love this Bar and Grill is closing its doors.

The ambitious, 12,000 square foot restaurant and concert venue project at the Palladio Center in Folsom seemed to be plagued by service issues, employee turnover and management changes.

Despite offering happy hours, big name country acts, open mic nights, and dance lessons, they never seemed to gain enough of a regular customer base nor attract enough out of town visitors to keep it full.

While KNCI radio reported the doors had already closed, an employee who answered the phone said they are open, at least for today.
