ROSEMONT, Ill. -- There's no love for Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill in Rosemont these days.

The Daily Herald is reporting that a lawsuit has been filed to evict his country bar and restaurant from its Rosemont-owned location at MB Financial Park just off of the tollway.

Reports say that hundreds of thousands of dollars are unpaid in rent, taxes and fees.

Boomtown Entertainment that licenses Keith's name did not respond to the Hearld's requests for comment.

Other Toby Keith locations around the country have closed.

Rosemont Mayor Brad Stephens says that he's already talking to other potential users of the space.

A hearing is expected Thursday.

Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill is located at 5441 Park Place in Rosemont
