A very good burger and funky atmosphere!

We visited on recommendation from our server at Loveless Cafe! He said Rotier's was the best burger we'd find in Nashville and we love burgers! Indeed the French Bread burger was delicious!

You don't come here because this is the last word in haute cuisine. You come here because not much has changed in 70 years of continuous operation. Sure, there are better burgers, nicer build outs, and more hip experiences, but what this place exudes is authenticity. Make no mistake, there are better options, but for a classic, old school, local... More

Walked down the street past the Logan Road House and found this GREAT LOCAL restaurant. I just love these places, food and service was great. Spend your money on the local guy.

We came in after a Vanderbilt basketball game with a party of 6 including grandparents. We were the 2nd group on their wait list. We were told by the younger owner that we were their only larger party. After patiently waiting for a table for almost 45 minutes, the older owner took a party of 9 and sat them at... More

A small but quaint place hidden from the massive traffic. Great staff and awesome food at a reasonable price.

This casual place was recommended by our hotel as a Nashville landmark. Although the place seemed fun, unfortunately the food was not very good, even the burgers which they are "famous for" were nothing special. A real disappointment.

Met friends from the area on our winter travels; cool old building with a great neon sign and green vinyl booth seats inside added to the ambiance of this place. The cheeseburger was one of the best I've had, onion rings and fries also good. The mozzarella cheese sticks were delicious as well. The chess pie was tasty; wish I... More

The outer appearance might look a little shady but the inside is where you will feel the warmth of this 75 year institution. Beef is the specialty such as burgers and sandwiches but their chicken is great, as well as the fried patty melt. Also make sure you try the grilled pimento cheese sandwich with bacon. DELICOUS... I can't wait... More

I don't care what the reviews say, I don't care what the latest fad is. All I care about is a good burger, and there isn't a better place to get one in Nashville than Rotier's! 50's style diner, nothing fancy.....just the BEST burger in this town. Also the most incredible fried pickle spears you will ever have. Small place,... More
