Progress being made on Reba McEntire’s upcoming restaurant in southeastern Oklahoma

ATOKA, Okla. — Progress is being made on Reba McEntire’s new restaurant that will open later this year in southeastern Oklahoma.

The restaurant, called Reba’s Place, will open this fall in the heart of downtown Atoka. A three-story building will house a restaurant, bar, gift shop and stage for live music.

It’s part of a collaboration between McEntire, the City of Atoka, and the Choctaw Nation.

The restaurant will have some of McEntire’s favorite foods and signature cocktails.

Authorities have not announced an exact opening date, but a website has been created.

Last year, McEntire was evacuated from a building in Atoka. She was touring the building when a staircase collapsed. She was not hurt.
