If you're looking for Midwest comfort food...you have arrived! Every employee was happy and eager to accommodate us, no matter what! Want BOTH gravies...no problem. As many amazing dinner rolls as your belly can handle...THROWED to you right out of the oven OR delivered to your table, if your catching ability is lacking. Staff walks around with pots of beans,...

They have a great selection of food. The food was excellent! Always love the okra. It's fun to watch them throw the rolls. The staff act like they enjoy their jobs which makes it a much more pleasant experience. Glad I finally got my husband to stop to eat there. He enjoyed it also.

Omg. This is our third time here and it only gets better! We travel through Sikeston a couple of times per year and plan our mealtime and hotel stay so that we can be at Lamberts for lunch, when there isn't such a big crowd. We got hot rolls thrown to us as soon as we sat down. We had... More

If you've not been to a Lambert's cafe already, you've missed out on a unique dining opportunity. They've got 3 locations in all; and though I'm partial to their Foley,Al location, their Sikeston outlet runs a real close 2nd. Lambert's has a variety of country options on the menu, and I've tried most. The catfish and meatloaf are among the... More

It's been several years since I've been to Lamberts because it is 2 hours from home but was passing through and had to stop. Was good as always and more food than you can eat. My husband got the hog jowl and was enough to feed the whole family. I got the special chicken and dressing and didn't think it... More

Decided to meet up with friends at Lamberts. We had about a 1 hour wait on a Sunday afternoon. Fun & entertaining while you eat. They bring around "pass arounds" of fried okra, mac & stewed tomatoes, the best fried potatoes ever, plus the huge throwed rolls. The dinner salad I ordered was the biggest I've ever seen served in... More

We have been coming to Lamberts for years and I was a little disappointed with all the negative reviews. So, on this visit I put on my most critical hat. The following is what I noted during this visit. As I walked in I looked for the garbage that some people complained about on the floor. I did notice a... More

Great down home southern cooking with huge helpings plus servers walking around offering free sides of okra, mac and tomatoes plus they throw hot rolls to you. It's entertaining just watching all the activity going on around you.

Super value for amazing southern fare. Pass around sides, rolls and large portions. Try the fried okra!

These days it seems the more you pay for a meal, the more likely you are to leave hungry! NEVER the case at Lambert's (home of throwed rolls)! They offer a good variety of great southern cooking, which you order off the menu, but then there are folks walking around continuously with large bowls of fried okra, fried potatoes, and... More
