My kids and I eat here a lot. And I mean a lot. We love love LOVE their fries and sweet tea. My son eats the cheddar rounds whenever possible. We cannot get enough of them. And we learned if you ask for seasoning salt on your cheddar rounds it makes them 100000x better!!! The Philly cheese is wonderful and... More

I have been hearing that this is the "Best" in the area but we were not really impressed. Fries were good and the sweet tea. But the burger was just average at best...

This is a great place to get food from. There is no dining area, but that doesn't seem to deter anyone from coming. I recommend the big Pal with cheese.

Pal's is just plain out good food. The Pal's burger is great, but don't get it if you aren't hungry. It's big! Guess that's why they call it the Big Pal. And you have the Frenchie Fries. Wow, these are a lot better than McDonalds. I have been known to forget any other type of food and just order a... More

I don't know how you rate fast-food...but I sure do like me some Pals. Great food (for the genre), good service, super fast and always right. Hard to beat Pals!

In a hurry? Stop at Pal's. Known for great fast food and wonderful iced tea. Try their peach tea- ummmm.

This was part of our seven day drive through the south seeking good food! I rarely think fast food places as excellent anymore! I mean the times of yesteryear when the dairy places had great food is over. Well maybe not! This place is cool just to be there! The food was not too greasy and was pretty damn good... More

I stumbled upon this fast food drive-thru on accident on a cross country road trip with my son and niece. It was a long day and the sight of Pals made us all upbeat. The food tasted fresher than typical McDonalds fare and the servers were not your usual angsty teenagers. We try to make this a regular stop when... More

I grew up in the Tri-Cities and now every time I return for a visit, I have to always make at least one run to Pal's. They are clean, have quick service, tasty sweet tea and yummy seasoned frenchie fries. The chipped ham is also very good.
