Fat person's paradise!

This place serves way too much food and it is definitely not healthy. If you are a BIG eater and do not care about what you put in your body, this is the place for you!

Lambert Cafe is home of the Throwed Rolls in our area and they provide a lot of food for the price you spend. Everything is southern food and in addition to the staff throwing rolls across the room to others dining, they also walk thru the restaurant offering other side items such as fried okra. I take my relatives here... More

I've heard of this restaurant for years and their slogan "Home of Hand Thrown Rolls." Arrived in Pensacola, FL today and family who picked me up suggested we go there for lunch. I hadn't eaten a "meal" since lunch yesterday as I had been traveling from the West Coast so said "Sure!" We arrived not long after they opened (10:30am... More

We have been to Lamberts more than three times. The first time we had a great time, great server, very entertaining atmosphere. Since then I am amazed at the number of families there. I must be missing something. We have had the most "un-fun" servers. Last night was the worst. Although you can't complain about the food (it is okay,... More

First, our server was simply one of the nicest servers I've had at any restaurant in quite some time. I was a little bit surprised at how large the portions were for the dinner items. Other servers walk around offering fried okra (love it!) among other items. Ok, the best thing...for the kids, is watching the "roll" server throw the... More

This was my first visit to this Lambert's Café. It lived up to the reputation of the original. The servers make you feel at home, then start bringing all sorts of great foods along with HOT throwed rolls. (yes, they will throw them from across the room). Great home cooking. try the chicken and dumplings and the roast beef! Always... More

Very good food and service. The food was hot and left us stuffed! We still took home leftovers. The rolls and cabbage were the best.

We have eaten at Lambert 's 1 in Missouri several times before! This one was just as good. Good home cooking! Plenty of food is brought to you. If you leave hungry, it is your own fault! The rolls and pass around good would be enough to eat but the main dishes are large. I can never clean my plate... More
