We drove a long segment today from Little Rock, AR to New Albany, IN (over 500 miles). Somehow, we ended up stopping for a late lunch at a relatively famous restaurant that we had never heard of nor would we have known it existed except for a few billboards. If you’ve ever wondered, billboard advertizing does work. At least, when it comes to finding a lunch spot in the middle of nowhere, it sure does.
We enjoyed the Lambert Cafe for a family outing/lunch. It wasn’t our typical budget lunch so we decided to call it a family outing so we could enjoy it despite the price. They do, in fact, throw the rolls to you. What fun! A few hit the floor but most people catch them. The rolls are too tasty to NOT catch them! Although, I caught one and it was so hot I thought I would drop it. It was so light and fluffy, I think it landed and molded to my hand which made dropping it on purpose quite a challenge!
It was a lot of fun though and the food was pretty good, especially the rolls and fried okra. I snapped a few pics of the experience. Beth snapped a shot of our quick crossing over the Mississippi River on “I-50something.” (I couldn’t keep track of the Interstate numbers…I just followed the GPS and hoped it would all work out. It did this time.)
