Throw Them Rolls!

[YouTube - Link]
It's not a food fight, it's the customary way rolls are delivered to diners at Lambert's Cafe in Sikeston, Missouri, which calls itself the "Home of the Throwed Rolls."

Why do they throw rolls?  Apparently, the practice began in the 1970s during a busy day in the Cafe when Norm Lambert was passing around rolls, and one impatient customer yelled "Throw the @$#$@# rolls!" so he did.

Just to let you guys know, if you fly in to town Lamberts will pick you up from the airport and drive you to the restaurant where you get to cut in front of everyone in line. It's hard to beat that.

I live just outside ST. Louis and every time i go visit my grandparents in Arkansas I make a stop at Lambert's. Sure it's out of the way and the novelty wears off but it is a fantastic local place to eat. And as Chris said all the stuff hanging from the ceilings makes the throwing somewhat impressive. also it's one of the only place i know that brings you mollasses from a bucket to your table

Sure, it's a gimmick -- but you gotta look at all that crap hanging from the ceiling! There is not much clearance to work with. Clearly they grab the local baseball players to chuck those things across the room. And let me tell you, they are hot hot hot!
