Dinner at Lamberts Cafe

We had heard about the Lambert’s Cafe (Home of the Thrown Rolls) trio for several years from our RV’ing friends.  We knew there was one in Sikeston, MO, which was right on our way.

Once we got there, it was 5:30PM on a Saturday night!!  The wait for a table was about one hour.  We decided to wait, since it is a place that we wanted to experience.  We parked the Bus on a big lot behind the restaurant, started up the generator, and turned on the a/c to wait.

The individual meals were large……. but by the time they got to the table, waiters had already been around with what are known as “passarounds”…… large pots of grilled potatoes with onions, macaroni and tomatoes, black-eyed peas, and fried okra.  You also had the guy who went around with rolls…… throwing them to you from across the room, or handing them to you if you were close enough.  When you caught it, you immediately found out how hot and fresh it was!!

I took some pictures inside the restaurant, but between my camera being on the blink, and the low lighting, they are not good pictures!!

The roll tosser (he was actually very accurate!)……..

Here’s a lady that was sitting across from us.  It appears that she has successfully caught a lot of rolls in her life!!!!
