You want original? You want different? You want fun and organized chaos? Then you've got to go to Lambert's, home of the thrower rolls even if it's out of your way. We did a 50 mile detour and it was worth every ounce of gas.

Such a selection, plus they served, fried okra, fresh roles (that they would throw to you if you had your hand in the air),macaroni with tomatoes and okra, home fried potatoes with onions, black eyed peas. All of this was offered to you at no extra cost. Portions large and taste exceptional.

I first started going to Lambert's with my husband back in the 1980s when my husband and I would stop several times a year when we were in the area. We always enjoyed Norm, dressed in his bib overalls, who personally greeted each guest and made sure you did not want just one more pass along before leaving or just... More

As usual, lots of food - was with a large group and we were served quickly. Do be wary of rolls - one landed in my drink. They kept ignoring hand of person next to me so I waved for one - that one hit me in the chest. They don't take credit cards which is inconvenient when you are... More

We always love viysiting Lambert's on our way to Branson in Ozark, MO. So after being in St. Louis and drivong down I55 we decided to try the original cafe in Sikeston. Wow! What a difference. The girl taking names was so unfriendly and unprofessionally slouched in her seat at the booth. The guy inside at the host station was... More

We werer told about this place when we stopped at an information/travel stop. The ambience was fantastic - I could have spent a couple of hours there just looking at of the different collections on the walls! The food was very good and the novelty of the fresh "throwed rolls" was great. We didn't even order an entree; we just... More

Missed their place in Alabama, but very happy we were able to try them in Missouri. This place was fantastic. Down home style cooking and someone throwing rolls to you. Very cool and fun for all ages.
