Was my favorite back when a student at Vanderbilt, and did not disappoint upon recent return with my family in tow. The burgers are fantastic, the hash brown casserole brought me right back to my college days. Still offers meat and two or three sides...More

Love this place. Old -timey, down-homey and really good. It gets busy, so judge your timing accordingly. Still, they are used to handling the volumn and are efficient. Go!

If you are looking for a great hand-formed hamburger pattie, this is the place to go. It’s totally old school from the front counter to the back room booths. The food is delicious and inexpensive. Don’t think about calories or fat intake. Just enjoy! This...More

Open since 1945, Rotier's serves comfort food. I had the signature cheeseburger on French bread. It was excellent. It comes with house-made chips so don't bother with the up charge for french fries -- the chips are better. Menu includes various meat entrees with vegetable...More

Rotier's is a delight! A cloudy Saturday found four of us there for lunch, and we were so glad to visit for the first time. The burger, medium well, on French roll, with cheese, lettuce/tomato/pickle, and mustard, is perfect. Our waiter gave us a combo...More

Rotier's has been here since the 40s, if I'm not mistaken. The menu has expanded a bit, but it's still a hole-in-the-wall where you can't go wrong with a grilled cheeseburger. Just a block from Vanderbilt, it does a steady business with frat boys, but...More

Rotier's has been around for decades. It's diner-type food. I had the burger & fries and my daughter had the chicken fingers & fries. Everything was fairly good. Service wise the staff was very nice, but they seemed understaffed, so it was a bit slow....More

Stopped at Rotier’s after Centennial Park, and we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the friendliness of the staff. 10/10 would recommend.
