John Rich says they're 'Shuttin' Detroit Down,' but Toby Keith doesn't seem too worried.

The Detroit Free Press reports that the entrepreneurial Oklahoman has chose the Motor City as the location for his sixth I Love This Bar & Grill restaurant and entertainment center.

Taking the name from his 2003 hit 'I Love This Bar,' the franchise already has locations in Oklahoma City, Las Vegas, Kansas City, Mesa, Ariz., and at a Cherokee casino in Catoosa, Okla.

Items on the menu include Honky Tonk meatloaf, Freedom Fries and Southern-fried Twinkies. One of the restaurant's specialties, the American Soldier Burger, is served free of charge to any military personnel with valid military ID.

Construction on the new complex will begin soon, and the restaurant is expected to employ about 200 people.
