Lambert’s Restaurant in Sikeston is known as the restaurant where they throw the rolls. Everyone who’s ever traveled that stretch of I-55 knows it’s actually a tourist attraction for that very reason!
I mean, their website is throwedrolls.com!
A woman, Troy Tucker, is suing Lambert’s for damages after being hit with one of these “throwed rolls”.
“Tucker claims she was hit in the eye by a “throwed roll” and suffered a detached cornea. Now she says she has impaired vision.”
“Lambert’s general manager, Jerry Johnson, said servers never intend to hurt anyone when they throw those rolls. Johnson also said this isn’t the first time someone has sought money after getting hit by an errant roll. He did say in some of those cases the restaurant’s insurance paid for medical expenses.”
We took some calls about it this morning and surprisingly, at least to us, they ran about 50-50 on who they’re supporting in this case, the woman or Lambert’s.
