Lambert’s Cafe – Foley, Alabama – August 2018

Oh my! Never going to eat at this place again! So stuffed!! So aside from your main meal which comes with a cup of tea or soda the size of a Big Gulp and 2 or 3 huge sides, they also come around and give you fried okra on a paper towel to nibble on before your meal and throw huge hot rolls at you and bring around apple butter and sorghum to put on them. Those are what they call ‘pass arounds’. Then when your meal comes, they bring more pass arounds such as macaroni and tomatoes, fried potatoes and onions, black-eyed peas or boiled cabbage. Those are all in addition to your dinner sides! Even though they were quick to serve, by the time my dinner arrived I could barely eat but a few bites of it. We ended up taking home 3 styrofoam containers of good! My pork cutlets and Ken’s fried potatoes and onions will end up being our breakfast tomorrow with a couple eggs thrown in for good measure. Then we’ll share Ken’s chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes and corn for dinner tomorrow night. Everything was delicious and arrived hot even the pass arounds and the hot rolls being thrown at customers. Great place and great good!!
