Roiter's and O Sole Mio....Nashville

Chuck | Sep 24, 2005 10:38 AM

Went to Roiter's for lunch. Classic place recommended by many on this board. Heeded parking warnings (tow a way) and had to walk a couple of blocks to this little tavern situated amongst all these more modern strip centers with national chains.

I got there at 11:45 AM and within literally minutes there were at least 15 people in line for a table! I sat at the counter and spoke to the woman at the register. she told me they were getting ready to celebrate 60 years in business! Amazing.

I ordered the burger on a French roll (mistake) well done fries which I knew were frozen and a strawberry milk shake..Just like I was told to on this site. the burger meat was very fresh and tasty. The roll was far too big for the amount of meat and I'd suggest sticking with a traditional bun. I ordered it medium rare and it came medium well.

Lots of people eating meat and 3's. the french fries were perfectly cooked as ordered and the shake was good. I enjoyed the place. No, it could not compare to the best burgers I've had but it was good.

Originally planned to go to Cafe Margot, but the logistics did not work for us. Staying near Music Row at a quiet place without any transvestite conferences like in Atlanta....Unbelievable.

We did not want to drive on two interstates and a total of 10 miles to get to Cafe Margot (got lost to many times already) so I went on the Net and did a Best of Search for Italian and came up with O Sole Mio (sp) and it was surprisingly good. The homemade pasta was perfecly cooked and the fresh tomato sauce was very, very good. Good desserts. We really enjoyed the place. It was very busy..Good for them.

Still looking forward to Germantown Cafe and ZOLA!
