One of the benefits of RVing, especially for families, is the kitchen/campfire combination. Besides the convenience of putting together a meal in the middle of nowhere, you’re more likely to eat healthier foods and save money over dining out.
But, no matter how well you eat in that RV, there are some restaurants across the US that are worth the stop, or even the detour and extra driving to get there. Bon appétit!
Lambert’s Café 3 locations: Sikeston, MO; Ozark, MO; Foley, AL
This ‘Mom & Pop’ joint has been serving generous portions of comfort food since 1942 when Earl and Agnes Lambert opened in Sikeston, Missouri. Best known as the ‘Home of Throwed Rolls’, you won’t leave Lambert’s hungry. Everything here is scaled to ‘large’. Drinks arrive in bottomless, XL insulated cups, staff visit your table before and during your meal with ‘pass arounds’ which include fried okra, macaroni & tomatoes, and fried potatoes, and many meals are served in skillets.
And then there are the rolls — fresh from the oven, hot and fluffy, doughy goodness. As the call “Hot rolls!” is heard, heads swivel toward the voice and hands go up in the air. The roll slinger will catch your eye before lofting the soft ball sized roll towards you. It takes a gentle hand to catch but not squish the roll, preserving its fluffy center for a generous helping of butter and honey.
