Good greasy spoon diner

Went here because someone on the plane told me to. It was good but not special. Greasy patty melts and great sweet potato fries. I hear the shakes are good. Very nice wait staff and bartenders. Very casual. Don't look for southern cooking. Maybe a good lunch! Too many great places in Nashville.

This is an awesome piece of history with great food. The BEST cheeseburger that I have ever had. Although the restaurant was very busy, the waitstaff was very apologetic and controlled the situation well. It was well worth the wait.

I was expecting more of a crusty french bread bun for their famous burger. It was still very tasty meat but a little too much bread. Fries were great. I always request mine extra crispy and they were cooked perfectly. You know its a family run operation when you walk in. The services is always better when the owners are... More

Was in town for Vandy's graduation. We stopped in here one night with out son. It was a place we had been with him before. We all got burgers on toasted white bread. We all like them and would go back again and again. There are lots of wonderful dining spots, but if you not interested in waiting in line... More

My wife, daughter and I were visiting Vanderbilt University last month and searched for somewhere to get a good burger in the vicinity. Rotier's, about a block away, came up as a must try. Rotier's is an old school bar/restaurant that does a hopping lunch business. My burger, home made potato chips with ranch side for dipping, brownie sundae (that... More

Apparently this restaurant used to be a great spot; however, when I arrived it was dirty and cramped. I bought the burger that I had heard so much about, and I was thoroughly disappointed with its low quality. This is a hard pass.

Loved this place. I had the famous french bread burger and it was delicious. The onion rings were great, and I recommend visiting when you are in Nashville.
