The food is good, but expect a wait. It's a fun place to take the kids. but be prepaired to wait at least 1 hr.

We had seen this restaurant on the Travel Channel and decided to stop on our way to the Springfield, MO airport. When we drove up we almost turned around the parking lot was packed and people were standing outside in lines. We stopped and found the sign in line moved very quickly and the wait for lunch was about 50 minutes. We've waited longer than that for dinner at a local restaurant so we decided to wait to eat at a local landmark. Boy was it worth the wait... my husband and I shared the biggest country fried steak (16 oz.) with mashed potatoes and cream gravy that you've ever seen in your life, plus it came with your choice of two additional side dishes and all of the free pass arounds. I ordered just a pate of pass arounds so we could share everything. (all of the pass arounds are free, they included, fried okra, macaroni and tomatoes, black eyed peas, fried potatoes and onions and of course the famous throwed rolls). They are know as the home of the throwed rolls. And if you didn't eat anything else the rolls are not to be missed. I mean don't miss it when it's thrown your way or it will hit the floor or your neighbor, because they throw it across the room to you. Delish!!! don't miss it, just make sure you leave enough time to visit, the wait was about 1 hour but the food service was quick and good. oh yeah, they don't take credit cards or debit cards, but they do have an ATM machine on site if you need it.

This is the best of the Lamberts Cafe restaurants that we have visited. Definitely stop in for lunch or dinner, though you will find lunch (served till 4 pm) to be cheaper.

Pretty much anything on the menu is amazing, but keep in mind that you will be getting far more than you ordered because of the pass arounds for which there are no limits. You may make one order, but this is truly an all-you-can-eat place.

Starting with the famous rolls, it's a lot of fun to have them tossed to you from across the room or just tableside if they sense that you are a bit nervous about the catch. Then the guy comes around with a big jar of sorghum or apple butter at your preference and load er up!

Make room for more though, because there will be someone showing up shortly with fried okra to put out on your paper towel, or fried potatoes, black eyed peas, or mac and stewed tomatoes, all home made. They will keep bringing it as look as you keep eating it.

Don't let some of the other things scare you either. I've never tried livers or hog jowls, but they are actually quite delicious.

This is just a lot of fun here, with lots of music, lots of people laughing and having fun, and a wait staff that loves doing what they do. Not your place for a quiet romantic dinner, but for family or friends, this is the place to go. And it's pretty cheap. Most people will come out for about $10-12 for all you can eat, not cafeteria type food.

We love to stop here on our way to or from Branson. The food is always great and the service is top notch. Even with a packed house you don't wait more than a few minutes for your food. Great place
