Lamberts and Throwed Rolls

In Sikeston near Advance there is a cafe called Lamberts which has the speciality of throwed rolls which is as it sounds. After you have been seated if you want a roll you holler (shout) to the appropriate member of staff and they throw the hot roll at you. The cafe was like stepping back in time about 30 years and several states to the West! The decor was mainly licence (number) plates on the wall and all that was missing was saw dust on the floor and a row of spittoons. The food was very good although I avoided the chicken gizzards and pigs jowls and had shredded beef in a open sandwich laced with gravy and Sarah had the sausage and kraut (sauerkraut). The other feature they are renowned for is that some of the waiters wander round serving as much side orders as you want. These include fried okra, macaroni and tomatoes, black eyed peas and sorghum molasses. A very nice meal and an unusual place.
