SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) -- The New York location of country music star Toby Keith's chain of restaurants owes more than a quarter-million dollars in sales taxes to the state.

The Post-Standard of Syracuse reported (http://bit.ly/1uAeH9r ) that a tax warrant filed by the state earlier this month seeks $107,000 owed by Toby Keith's I Love this Bar & Grill at the Destiny USA shopping mall in Syracuse.

Keith's Syracuse bar, which opened last year, also owes more than $145,000 in sales taxes from earlier in 2013.

The musician's chain of restaurants, named for the title of one of his hit songs, features guitar-shaped bars, beer in mason jars and traditional southern food.
