My friend, Paulette, emailed me about a restaurant in Branson, Missouri, where they "throw the rolls." I made a mental note to stop in at Lambert's Cafe when next we hit Branson. As we were traveling to visit the USS Alabama on Mobile Bay, I spied a billboard - while taking a break from helping Dave drive - "home of throwed rolls." So, on Sunday afternoon following church in Gulf Breeze, Florida, there we were in Foley, Alabama, and I was catching a throwed roll! It was a wonderfully southern meal which included boiled cabbage, black-eyed peas and fried okra - at Lambert's they call these the pass-arounds - all this topped off with a pulled-pork sandwich and slaw, plus throwed rolls.
(pictured is one of our servers with rolls at the ready!)
Lambert's Cafe Thanks Paulette.

If you order hashbrowns - and who wouldn't? - you can order them plain OR you can choose from the menu pictured on the left.
I like my hashbrowns smothered, covered, diced, and capped. Believe me when I say the first time you hear a server yell across the counter, "smothered, covered, diced and capped, " you will just laugh out loud. How can you have a bad day when it starts of with coffee and smothered,covered, diced, and capped?
You may have guessed that Waffle House also serves waffles, I have not tried them - yet. Dave thinks they are wonderful with pecans.

Additional note: Marlen grew up in Worthington, Minnesota, near Dave's boyhood home. I love it when God gives us reminders of the connection we have to each other and to Him.
