But still great burgers. Got there early (lunchtime) and place wasn't crowded, but service took forever. Love the place, but service was lacking on this visit.

There hasn't been to many updates to the restaurant over the years but you feel right at home & many locals go there so much you here them being called out by first name when they enter the restaurant.

Not horrible but nothing special. Food was decent but not amazing. Service was good. Prices were average. Very dark inside. Just your average dive.

We wanted to experience some local spot for lunch and this was recommended to us. What a trip back in time! You have to ask for the milkshake - it is not on the menu - neither are the fried green tomatoes. Burgers are great - homemade chips - delish. Very old fashioned inside - could use a good cleaning...

Went hear cause we heard was the best burger in town... they were very good we also had fried pickle spears and buffalo tenders that were very good. A little disappointed they were out of beer battered onion rings and the fried potato chips were ok!! Would recommend to check it out if in the area.

Good comfort food. Part meat and three part bar Burgers are good along with the daily specials. Service is always top notch. A reminder of what Nashville used to be. I hope they stick around for many more years. Dark and cozy inside with mostly booths.

I've been going to Rotier's for years but haven't taken time to review. It's one of those classic "local" favor" stops when visiting Nashville and staying on West End. My favorites are the burgers and the "meat and threes" with some of those tasty side orders. .

This restaurant has been open and running since 1948. I've lived in Tennessee all of my life but as an adult was stuck in a rut of chain restaurants and I'm so glad I'm out of it! All of the staff is super nice! It takes you back in time, there's even a retro cigarette machine at the front door... More
