Lambert’s Café II
1800 West State Highway J
Ozark, MO 65721

In 1942, with 14 cents in hand, Earl and Agnes Lambert started the family business—Lambert’s Café. It has been growing bigger and bigger ever since. The motto—“We hope you come hungry, leave full, and hopefully have a laugh or two.”—holds true every day. For more than 70 years, they have entertained visitors with great home-style cooked meals in a roaring atmosphere. On a busy day in 1976, Norman Lambert was handing out rolls in the crowded restaurant. He couldn’t reach a patron in the back, so the man yelled, “Just throw the @#*^ thing!” He did. That is how Lambert’s Café began throwing rolls.
