Home of Throwed Rolls Apr 28, 2010
Lambert's is one of my absolute favorite places to eat in the whole world. They are famous for their throwed rolls -- yes they really do throw the rolls across the dining room. These dinner rolls are DIVINE. They are served freshly baked and HOT, with optional sorghum molasses that is so sweet and melts into the bread and makes it absolutely awesome. Lambert's is also known for their 'pass arounds'... extra side dishes they come around with -- fried okra (that you can get before your meal comes on a napkin), and fried potatoes, macaroni and tomatoes, and black-eyed peas (that must be placed on your plate). These are all served without an extra charge to your meal.

The entrees are of massive portions. I've had some of the best chicken fried steak ever here (even the 'hen'-size portion covers the plate) and the roast beef is incredible, too. Lambert's uses only the best quality ingredients and it shows. The food tastes fresh and is cooked extremely well. And, even though it is a large portion, it is so good, you just keep eating and eating and eating!

Lambert's is a busy, busy place. An hour's wait or better is not uncommon, especially on the weekend. But, the last time we ate here was on a Wednesday night and we got right in without hesitation.

The Sikeston, Missouri location is the original, though they have rebuilt a few times to expand the restaurant. But, now there are also locations in the Ozark, Missouri, and Foley, Alabama.

It's an awesome place to eat! If you drop the roll, they'll just throw you another!
