I had the meat loaf, creamed potatoes with gravy, greens and corn bread. The meat loaf was really good and tasty. Greens and corn bread was very good too. I will eat here again. Really cool place with friendly service.

Driving on I-55 South from St. Louis, my friends and I decided to exit at Sikeston, MO to check out Lambert's, the restaurant famous for waiters throwing rolls to patrons & good down home cooked food. We weren't disappointed. Huge helpings of meats and unlimited "pass around" veggies. The large, straight from the oven rolls are tossed by the servers... More

We have eaten here many times over the years. Always a treat! Everything we have ever ordered has been good. My favorite is the grilled pork chops. YUM!!

Lambert's Cafe is hands-down the most unique restaurant we have eaten at. The only negative, even though the place is gigantic, is that there was a 30 minute wait at 2 pm on a Tuesday. I can't imagine what the wait is on the weekends. Other than that, Lambert's was truly delicious. The softball-sized rolls became projectiles as they were... More

We had a wonderful time, the line was non existent as we went during the week. Fabulous service and wonderful meal, "Throwed rolls" are always the biggest and best Yeast rolls ever...

Lamberts has a big variety of entrees, sides, and more. Pass-alongs are served in addition, so don't order big sides with your entree. We had fried okra, potatos, greens, and green beans available during our visit. Pork ribs (not babybacks) are great, meaty, and delicious.

If you want to get knocked in the head or try to catch a hot roll fresh out of the pan, go to Lambert's Cafe. This was a fun revisit after several years and nothing has changed. When they call out, "Hot Rolls!" look out and be ready to catch. They are large and tasty. I like mine with a... More

Lamberts is such a unique place to eat. First a van picked us up at the campground we were staying at and took us to the restaurant, and we were seated quickly. With the entrees you get sides and also pass arounds. My favorite is the macaroni and tomatoes but there are lots of them. Plus the huge homemade rolls.... More
