“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,” she told the crowd.
“We’re really tickled, we’re very excited about it,” she added. “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 is formed in partnership with the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma and the City of Atoka.
According to the official Reba’s Place website, the menu will feature popular local dishes as well as food from other regions such as Nashville, New Orleans and Mexico.
A highlight of the menu is the “Fancy” steak dinner, dubbed after Reba’s iconic song of the same name. Other must-have menu items include street tacos, chicken fried steak and the Grand Ole Opry member’s personal favorite dish, pinto beans and corn bread.
Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy beer, wine and spirits at the newly restored antique bar that is more than a century old.
Additionally, the dining and entertainment venue will feature memorabilia from Reba’s archives and a store front with one-of-a-kind merchandise.
Reba’s Place will be located at 319 East Court St, Atoka, OK 74525.
Next year, the Oklahoma native will embark on her highly anticipated 2022 tour, REBA: LIVE IN CONCERT. Launching in January, the trek will also feature a lineup of talented female artists, including Brandy Clark, Hannah Dasher, Caylee Hammack, Reyna Roberts, Caitlyn Smith, Brittney Spencer and Tenille Townes (on various dates).
