Don't go to Branson, Missouri, without stopping by Lambert's in Ozark. Lambert's is home of the throwed rolls - If you want one you wave and they throw one across the restaurant to you. Lambert's is also known for their pass arounds (pan fries, okra, black-eyed peas, and macaroni and tomatoes) brought to the table constantly through the meal.
