Is This Nashville’s Best Burger?


The cheeseburger on French bread at Rotier's in Nashville.

The Daily Meal recently published our 101 Best Burgers in America for 2014, and in order to compile our ranking, we assembled a list of nearly 200 burgers from all across the country, from Spruce Pine, North Carolina to Hillsboro, Oregon. We then divided these burgers by region, and compiled a survey that was taken by a panel of 50 noted food writers, journalists, bloggers, and culinary authorities from across the country, asking them to vote for their favorites; limited, of course, to the ones that they’d tried. We tallied the results, and published the 101 stellar American burgers with the most votes.

Rotier's cheeseburger, located just a stone’s throw from Vanderbilt University, secured the highest spot (#48) of any other burgers from Nashville in our compilation. A hunk of soft French bread sandwiches the hand-formed six-ounce burger patty, which is topped with your choice of lettuce, tomatoes, and onions. It beat out the Gabby Burger at Gabby's Burgers and Fries (#71), the Fat Mo's Burger at Fat Mo's (#73), and The Woodstock at Burger Up (#75).
