Lambert's, Home of Throwed Rolls

As in most all-you-can-eat places, there isn't any take-home of leftovers. If you are watching your budget or diet choose selectively, or if there's more than one in your party, each get something different. You can buy bags of rolls in the front from their bakery if you don't want to wait for a table.

Take the rolls home and throw them, with no waiting, at your friends and family.

Lambert's may have a wait. Call ahead inc ase your travel plans don't allow for extended waiting time. Wear loose fitting clothes around your waistline and prepare for the stampede of country folk waiting for troughs of fried okra, potatoes, and black eyed peas.

Don't forget your baseball mitt for those famous Lambert's "throwed" rolls!

Had heard of the enormous wait times to get in, so we tried to arrive at what we thought would be an "off-peak" time, but apparently there is no such thing at Lambert's! Food was more than plentiful -- not "cold" as I've read in some reviews. Was it the best food we've had? No. Was it worth the hour drive, hour and half wait, and $10-18 priced lunch entrees? Ehhh.... Guess this is one of those "been there, done that, don't need to do it again!" attractions.

Worth the wait for the experience. Main dishes far outshone by the tasty fresh rolls with sorghum and family style sides.
