Sikeston, Missouri

Sikeston, Missouri is the location of LAMBERT’S CAFE I and of the original cafe which opened in March 1942. The cafe standing right now is the fourth one to be located in Sikeston. Each move from the original LAMBERT’S came as popularity of the cafe increased and more space was needed. In 1976, Norman Lambert, son of the founders and original owners, Earl and Agnes Lambert, threw the first roll. At the original location, he would walk around and hand out the rolls. One day it was really busy and when Norman couldn’t get through the crowd, one of the customers yelled to him ” Throw the D*** thing!”. And with that the only HOME OF THROWED ROLLS was born.

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Missouri (CNN)- … Amy Yeager, 35, was talking. Yesterday we wrote about her two-and-a-half hour drive across Missouri so she could visit the restaurant that calls itself “The Only Home of Throwed Rolls”; the throwed-rolls experience, she told us, was fulfilling enough that several times a year she does it: drives a total of five hours round-trip for a meal that lasts considerably less than 90 minutes…
