As the old country saying goes, "So good, it'll make you wanna slap yo momma!". Don't eat all morning and go there around 2pm. The food is EXCELLENT! and the "fixin's" are brought to the table and slapped down on a paper napkin while you wait for your food. The rolls are thrown at you - better be a good... More

We had a small family gathering here. They handle crowds very well...efficient and fast but still give you good service. Great country cooking and love all the free dishes they bring by. The rolls are amazing! Portions are huge...make sure you're hungry when you get there!

Lambert's Café is a Southeastern Missouri institution. My family has been going there since they were in their original location many years ago. I have a lot of fond memories of Lambert's. I was excited to share the experience with my kids and husband! There is always a wait to be seated, even on a Tuesday, which is when we... More

The hot rolls are always good and service is usually good. It is not fine dining, but a great experience - especially for first timers.

We stopped at Lamberts for lunch during the week. We only had to wait about 15 minutes to be seated which was the fastest I ever recall being seated at Lamberts (we have eaten at the Sikeston and Ozark locations). As usual, the atmosphere is fun and the food is good. They bring a variety of side dishes for you... More

We went to Lamberts after a long day of traveling. They were doing a booming business but seated us quickly. Their portions are enormous and tasty. Our grandson especially enjoyed the rolls that are thrown to you all the way across the room. We have eaten at the Lamberts in Springfield as well and the Springfield rolls are softer. But... More

We stopped here to eat because my brother had never eaten here. His eyes when the server offered him another full plate of food was hilarious. You will not go hungry here. Quality control is pretty good because the food was exactly the same as I've had in Foley, which I e been to many times. Meatloaf, roast beef, and... More
