Food was extremely good and service was excellent. They are known for throwing rolls. If you have eaten there, you will know what I'm talking about. They will NOT hand you a roll, you have to catch it. This place is HUGE, and after eating there, I can see why they have gotten so big. It is not a fast food place even though it is quite large. Food is great, and all you can eat. I ended up taking almost half of what was on my plate with me. Some of the best catfish I have ever had. Bad part is, I can't remember the name of the town, but is in northeast Missouri.
    One is near us; Lambert's Cafe - The Only Home of Throwed Rolls - Sikeston, MO in Southeast, Missouri...and in Ozark, Missouri.

    In oil country, look for white pickups in the parking lot as well as LE cars. If there's a bunch; eat there.

    Sikeston is the one we went to. I just couldn't remember the name of the town. Great place to eat. Good food.

    At at a place near the Florida panhandle, they also had thrown rolls, about the size of a softball.

    The last of the Mom and Pop diners, as well as the last cafeteria in this county has closed. It's now fast food, chain stake place, or nothing. Just the memories make me hungry.

    I have, but it has been a while.

    I've been in many small local restaurants: some good, most mediocre, some bad, some really bad and a few really great ones.

    Surprisingly, the best ones haven't always been confined to small towns. Some of the best places I have been were in big cities. It's the people that make or break those places; the location isn't critical.
    I travel a fair amount and always ask the locals where to eat.

    I generally have better luck finding a good meal in a local restaurant located in a small town or deep in a big city. Suburban locations on the edge of a city are consistently the worst places to find good meals.

    I used to think that every trip to Gulf Shores required a visit to Lambert's, but not so much any more. Now it's "The Original Oyster House" if we can get in without a long wait.

    I haven't been in the area for a few years but, Moody's Diner in Waldoboro, Me. was a mandatory "pie stop" when heading Down East. Another good stop was a place on the main drag in Bingham on Rt. 201. I don't remember the name of it but the breakfast they served was memorable. Hope this helps--Stan.
