Lambert's is very homey...and the food is excellent...also enjoy the throwed rolls while we are waiting for our food to arrive....the pass arounds are enjoyable also...usually fried okra, fried potatoes, macaroni and tomatoes, etc....the rolls are accompanied w/sorghum....excellent....really makes the wait time more fun...

We enjoyed eating at Lamberts. People come from miles around, and even though it is quite large there is often a wait. (About 15 minutes for lunch in our case.) It's not fancy, but it is fun and the food is good, plentiful, and reasonably priced. Their biggest claim to fame is that people roam the restaurant and throw fresh... More

This is a unique, country-style restaurant. The food is excellent with large portions at a reasonable price. There are wait staff personnel walking around with sides such as fried okra, beans, mac & cheese, so you end up getting much more food than you ordered. And of course there are the fresh baked rolls which the waiters will throw to... More

A trip to this area simply isn't complete without a stop at Lambert's Cafe! If you leave here hungry, it's your own fault. Haha The sharables are plentiful and the dinner plates are full of scrumptious home-cooking options.

What everyone else has said - COME HUNGRY!!! The rolls are awesome (ask for butter! The margarine on the table is meh...), the fried okra is SO good (can't believe I never tried it before! Yum!), and the servers are very nice. They only take cash and checks - but there is an ATM in the lobby. A very fun... More

We stopped in on a road trip as we got tires of fast food. This was an awesome experience! The fried okra and potatoes & onions pass-around sides were awesome. Home of the throwed rolls. Cool place!

This is the Missouri experience. Chaos, great food, lots of fun, enormous portions. Be sure to catch that roll, though, they're not quite as good off the floor ;-)

We went for lunch and got there at 10:45 and didn't have to wait at all. They started serving us the pass arounds before we even ordered. I had the fried chicken it was sooo good and a huge portion (4 pieces of chicken). The rolls are huge and delicious. The staff was so polite and friendly. We will definitely... More

Well, not sure what to say... It's a busy place, long wait to be seated even with a pretty quick and efficient process. If you're a big meat eater - this is probably your idea of heaven! (Vegetarians, not so much...) Very friendly people, food is pretty good, the throwed rolls are not only entertaining, but they're good rolls to... More
