What THEY said!!! LOL

I'm not sure anything can be added to what has already been said, but as of May 1, 2015...it hasn't changed. The staff is great, the food is fantastic and the price is good...not GREAT...but good. As they say, if you leave hungry, its YOUR fault!!!

Home of the "Throwed Rolls". Awesome place. Food portions are huge and food is very good. Kids love the waiters walking around throwing warm rolls across the place. Huge crowds but the wait was minimal. Great family restaurant, don't miss it if traveling through the area. ONE IMPORTANT NOTE, THEY DO NOT TAKE CREDIT OR DEBIT. CASH OR CHECK ONLY.

This place us awesome! The epitome of country cookin. They don't just bring food to your table though, I hope you're good at catching, cause they throw the rolls to you!! It's always packed I'm there, but there's not really a long wait. The longest we waited either time we went there was 5 minutes. If you're traveling through Sikeston... More

Very disappointing first and, probably, ONLY visit to Lambert's. I've heard about this place for years and have seen the specials on television, so I was excited to go. But, wow, was it ever disappointing! The atmosphere is fun and the service is friendly; the throwing of the rolls is fun. All of that is just great. However, the FOOD... More

My husband & I had eaten here on a vacation a number of years ago and made plans to stay in Sikeston on this trip so we could eat at Lamberts. The menu selection is good and the food is great! And of course the throwed rolls make the experience! All of the sides that they bring around are very... More

Having eaten at our local (100 miles away) Lamberts and the one in Foley, Al., I achieved my lifelong goal of making it to all three. And I must say that this location is the very best. I like the rolls in the other locations , but these were excellent. I was there in a group and it was fun... More

The only negative I know of with Lambert's can be the wait and the crowds. We picked a perfect day and time so we walked right in and had good food and good service. Lambert's is unique so it is a destination location with good food.

Lambert's is an experience and a destination even more than a meal. Sure the food is great, but I'll get to that in a minute. What I enjoyed most was talking to people outside who were waiting for the restaurant to open, the many tour buses packed with wide-eyed travelers, the young man with the strong arm and his "throwed"...

We were driving through so we had to stop! The only bad thing was that the ATM was out of order. We went next door to the place with the fried pies and came back a few minutes later and all was well. We got seated and were immediately given some fried okra. They were super-hot and crunchy. We ordered... More
