Pal's is really a well-oiled machine. They churn out good, cheap food in a super clean environment. Pal Barger really knows how to run restaurants. Try to the cheddar rounds and you will be instantly addicted.

If you are old enough to recall the 50's burgers and fries, this is the place. I have traveled to foreign countries and about half of the US, and Pal's burgers are the best I have encountered. The special chili that goes on the burgers is what sets it off. I guarantee you will like it if you will eat... More

Always quick, always good, always cheap, always there for you! Not a fan of fast food.....BUT.....if in the east Tennessee area and need something quick, then Pal's is the place. Easy to order, very friendly, and sudden service! Pal's is the place!

Fast service is really correct, they have very efficient service and friendly workers. I like the sauce burger and the Big Pal. The fries are usually good too but like others have said have too much salt. The milk shakes are tasty.

I Love pals! It's a must local spot! The burgers are pretty simple, but good. The fries and milkshakes are the best! I also love the peach tea. There are lots of locations all over the tri-cities area.

What a fun place! We had excellent food and fast, friendly service. We had wonderful, hot fresh fries that were so good with a little extra special spice that we didn't need ketchup. Will return!
