For all you yankee fan fairers out there that stumble across this review, For an authentic Nashville experience go see a REAL bluegrass show at the Ryman and or Station Inn, stop in at the Ernest Tubb Record Shop on Broad, just to look if nothing else, followed up with some comfort food at Rotier's (off the beaten path if you can find it). Its worth finding!!! One of Nashville's few original landmarks that hasnt been swallowed up by progression yet. This place looked old and greasy when I was a kid 30 years ago, and nothing's changed since. Hooray for Rotier's
It was a uniqe eating experience andi would like to it again

I loved the friendly people and atmosphere, and Ihave never had a burger as good as the one i had there.I think any one would enjoy being there and my brother I cant believe he ate an entire t bone steak.
Liked the cheeseburger on french bread, as it was recommended to us by a Vanderbilt University grad and friend. It was a bit pricey though, nearly $10 for that and fries and drink. But enjoyed the atmosphere and would go back !!!
A splendid little diner, with reasonable prices and spectacular food. The actual 'look' of the place is a bit shabby but that seems to add to its character, rather than degrade it. The Pork BBQ dinner is very good, as are the dinner rolls that come with it. I highly recommend this as a place to eat at, whether you have lived in Nashville all your life or are simply passing through.
As local eateries go, Rotier's is one of my favorites. It has been in Nashville for a very long time and quite frankly serves one of the best cheeseburgers in town. Order that and a coke in a glass bottle for the whole experience.
Rotier's is a Nashville tradition. Their burgers are legendary and are voted among the best burgers in America. The rest of the menu is excellent too (meat & 3). Their desserts are off the chart. Be sure to try the chocolate cake. It will blow you away.
The restaurant has changed very little over the last 30 or so years and is truly unique. It does tend to get crowded before Vanderbilt games (it's about 2 blocks from the stadiums) and parking can be a pain, but you MUST try a Rotier's burger if you come to Nashville.
