Last week we showed you another photo of a Nashville door as a teaser for today’s post in our blog series. If you were right, you guessed that the door belonged to Rotier’s Restaurant in Nashville!
Rotier’s opened its doors to the Nashville community in 1945 and has been winning over the hearts and stomachs of Nashville locals, tourists and celebrities alike ever since. It is located on Elliston Place off of history West End Avenue, a highly sought-after neighborhood in close quarters to Nashville’s Vanderbilt University as well as last week’s featured set of doors at West End Methodist Church.
What makes Rotier’s such a classic, timeless restaurant that stays abuzz with hungry customers year-round? The cozy atmosphere certainly helps! The restaurant has been family owned for over four generations after being opened by John and Evelyn Rotier.
The simple, straight forward menu is refreshing – because, where else can you go and get cheese and crackers as an appetizer? Their menu offers several meat-and-three options but nothing beats out the top seller on the menu: a cheeseburger.
Served either grilled or on French bread (the specialty) the simplicity and tastiness of the Rotier’s cheeseburger has helped create and retain buzz city-wide and keep this classic Nashville landmark restaurant wildly popular and loved. They also serve milkshakes that are rumored to be some of the best in Nashville, delivered icy-cold in the classic, aluminum milkshake cup, just like they were when the restaurant opened in 1945.
The next time you are hankering for a good, juicy burger or just some classic Southern food, head to Rotier’s on Elliston Place! Stay tuned next week for the next installment of our ADoor Nashville blog series!
