There is a nice variety of choices on the menu. Everything is fresh and the portions are huge. It's easy to fill up on the 'pass arounds' before your meal even arrives. Catching your rolls as they are thrown is always fun.

We really like the food at Lamberts so we try to stop & eat here every time we're in Springfield, MO. We got there when they opened at 10:30am and were seated right away. It still took a while to get our food as the restaurant fills quickly and by 10:45am all the tables were taken. Most of the time... More

Another good meal with way too much food. This time I tried the grilled pork chops (rather than the usual pot roast). Food was very good.

I have never wanted to go here, maybe I'm a fuddy duddy but something about throwing the rolls just doesn't seem sanitary to me. Other family members have wanted to go so we finally did. One particular table I noticed that their rolls hit the Kansas flag almost every time they were thrown, sort of confirming to me that it... More

Be ready to catch a hot roll - which is so good it doesn't even need the sorghum molasses they bring around! Fried chicken was wonderfully cooked and generous proportion-breast, leg, wing. Special of the day was pork (ribs, pulled, tenderloin). Cooked to perfection. All you can eat fried okra, fried potatoes, black eyed peas.... Wait was long but worth... More

Hot Rolls! They never stop coming amongst other sides served unlimited throughout your meal. The portions are huge, and the food is simply amazing. I will never judge a book by it's cover again. Thanks for the experience Lambert's!

Great experience for all. To avoid the rush, I really wanna come wait period they open at 10 and there is often a wine already set up before 11.

Been coming here for years and it's always a great trip for our family. The pass arounds are fantastic and all the food is so yummy. Finish your food and then they will bring you more! I like the meatloaf and salmon. My kids get the burger and wife gets the fried chicken. And the rolls are amazing!

Don't be in a hurry or you will be upset. Expect a a hour or more wait. The food is worth the wait. Reasonable price for what you get. If you are not real hungry just have the pass around ' s the waiter throws hot fresh rolls from across the room. Put some sorghum on them it is wonderful.
