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.

The Folsom City Council unanimously voted to see Sacramento County over the planned expansion of Mather Airport.
If the plan goes through, Mather would become a major hub for cargo carriers, and there is concern over flyover noise.
“If the master plan proceeds as planned and Mather is converted to a significant cargo hub, the impacts on the residents of Folsom will be significant into perpetuity, and that is unacceptable,” Folsom Mayor Kerri Howell said.
The county Board of Supervisors last month voted for a master plan calling for $107 million in improvements to the airport. Airport officials say the improvements are needed to bring the former U.S. Air Force base up to current standards.
