    So much FUN! Worth the wait, and the line moves quickly. Definitely come hungry. Pulled pork sandwich was delicious. And the apple butter on rolls: heavenly. Fried okra was my favorite pass around.

    They just keep feeding you. If you leave hungry it's your own fault. Chicken and dumplings were good but light on the chicken. Okra was amazing.

    They offer "pass-arounds" that are free, along with rolls. Consider splitting the generous portions and taking advantage of the great free rolls and sides.

    Don't say no to the fried okra or the rolls. And keep your head on a swivel, because they aren't lying when they say that they throw the rolls at you.

    If you're going to eat at Lambert's Cafe, get there at 11am. If you go early when they open, you won't wait in line, and it'll be much more enjoyable after not having been outside in the heat. Read more
