Joined by Chief Gary Batton of Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, the country icon shared the exciting news during a recent concert in Oklahoma on Friday evening (Nov. 26).
“We’re thrilled to pieces because it’s going to be right downtown Atoka. It’s going to be called Reba’s Place, and it’s going to be in the old Masonic building, y’all know where that is if you’ve been to Atoka,” the Country Music Hall Of Fame member told the crowd.
“We’re really tickled, we’re very excited about it,” McEntire continued. “It’s going to have great food, family atmosphere, a bandstand in there where we can do a little pickin’ and grinnin’ and singing, and we’re hoping by the end of next year, around September 2022, around that sometime that we’ll be ready for serving you guys. Come up and see us!”
Reba’s Place was “constructed in a century old Masonic Temple, and features two stories of dining space that open to a central stage which will regularly host live music performances,” according to the establishment’s official website.
The menu will include dishes most popular in the region alongside favorites from other areas including Nashville, New Orleans and Mexico.
Several menu highlights include the “Fancy” steak dinner, named after McEntire’s iconic single of the same name. In addition to the “Fancy” steak dinner, the menu will also include street tacos, chicken fried steak and Reba’s personal favorite, pinto beans and corn bread.
According to the official website, “the main floor also showcases a restored antique bar that is more than 100 years old and offers a broad range of beer, wine and spirits crafted into signature cocktails. The aesthetics of the venue are heavily influenced by Reba’s western heritage.”
The retail space will also feature a combination of merchandise created just for this new venture alongside established Reba favorites
Located at 319 East Court St, Atoka, OK 74525, Reba’s Place will also showcase a curated collection of memorabilia from Reba’s personal archives, which will regularly change.
Formed in partnership with Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma and the City of Atoka, Reba’s Place is set to open in late 2022 in Atoka, Oklahoma.
