Really good food and in huge amounts. Plus, while waiting on your order, servers are passing by offering fried okra, and several other "appetizers". Oh, we were so stuffed form eating there.

Delicious homestyle cooking! Family friendly. Best dinner rolls and apple butter ever! Friend chicken was good and the free side dishes are all very tasty.

The food is always very good, and they serve more than you can eat. You will love to catch their throwed rolls, delicious. Their driveway is full of cars, tourists, buses all year round. Very popular place.

Country cooking at its best. Large portions, so large that unless you can eat like a professional you will use a takeout box for half your meal.

Great place to visit. Good food with huge portions. Center cut ham is awesome. I have had it 3 times. Never a disappointment.

Our travels took to Sikeston to stop for the night. We checked in at Drury. Drury hotels offer cocktail hour, light meals and snacks, and hot breakfast. We had our free cocktail and I had the bright idea to try out Lambert's. I've seen this place on some travel shows so we knew the concept. We had to wait about... More

Went to Lambert's today and got there about 12:30pm. Expected there to be a huge line, and there was, but the wait was maybe 30 minutes tops. They really keep the line moving that is for sure, and it is definitely worth the wait. The rolls were great as always, but getting any of the other pass arounds today wasn't... More

We've eaten at different Lambert's restaurants and enjoyed them all. Take a big appetite - you'll need it. The throwed rolls are as advertised, but they're also good as well. Maybe the throwing makes them a bit more light and airy, who knows? The portions are huge and then supplemented by people coming around to offer macaroni, okra, fried potatoes... More

First time going in Sikeston, MO...I'm sure on any given day this place is crowded. We went on a Sunday afternoon and the wait was about an hour for my husband and I. The wait wasn't too bad, as we went inside to visit the store and browse around. The seating area was accommodating in the 90 degree temps that... More
