Rotier's Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Rotier's (pronounced Row-TEARS) boasts one of Nashville's most consistent menu stars: its grilled cheeseburger. The décor harks back to 1945, the year of the restaurant’s founding, and the food is sometimes served with sass, but that’s part of the deal. Family matriarch Evelyn Rotier --- known as Mama Rotier or Miz Rotier to devoted customers -- and her late husband, John, opened the restaurant when burgers were 25 cents, soft drinks a nickel and beer a quarter. Regulars come mainly for the burgers. The milk shake isn’t on the menu, and you must order it if you’re seeking sweet frosty bliss. It comes in three flavors --- vanilla, chocolate and strawberry --- and two sizes, 14-ounce and 28-ounce. There are loads of beers, including local craft brews, but no wines.
