A must for any Tri-Cities visit

Pal's is a mainstay in the Tri-Cities of Northeast Tennessee. You see these funky little blue boxes everywhere because everyone LOVES their food and can't get enough. The junior burger is my favorite. They use fresh ingredients including real lettuce and tomato, and it's always made right when you... read more

Every time i'm in Johnson City I make it a point to stop by Pal's. I crave it so much and anytime I get the chance to go there, I take it! The building is really cute with the over sized food on top. It's pretty unique in the way that it's a drive thru only..no option for sitting down... More

We used to live in Johnson City and ate Pal's frequently, so anytime we pass through the area we try to stop. Stopped yesterday and it was delicious, just as we remembered. Great food and service. Will be back!

I saw the billboard and just had to have one. I got mine with slaw. I guess the limited time for that menu item keeps the demand up, but seriously - I think they should make it a permanent menu item.

My family & I have eaten at many Pals in E. TN & SW VA. I have never ever had bad service, bad food or a wrong order. EVER. The burgers are great, the fries just seasoned enough & the Peachie Sweet tea is perfect!

This place is great for a night time snack! Everything is very tasty and service is quick. The staff is super friendly and helpful to folks out of town.

No other fast food restaurant can do what Pal's does: good fast food, fast, and superb cleanliness at its facilities - every single day. Now if we could just get cheddar rounds at lunch...

Our first time to Pals was on graduation weekend and it was FAST food! The speed with which they take orders and prepare them amazed us. The food was good food too! And the sweet tea was just how us Southern folks like it..a lil tea with our sugar! I just wish we had these little gems in our area!

I first visited Pals back in the late 70s when I was under 5 years old. All I really remember about back then was the really good milkshakes. Somewhere around the early 90s, I started college at ETSU and became a regular Pal's Tea customer. It just didn't feel right walking to class without my Pal's tea. I'll say some... More

Anyone and everyone should have the experience of eating at Pal's; I just moved my 'other mother' to Johnson City, from Savannah, GA; I took her through the Boones Creek Pal's and she had a double cheeseburger that she swears is the best burger she has ever eaten! Now, let me explain this lady will only eat at places that... More
