The Bar-b-dog is 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

My girlfriend from Kingsport TN. was constantly raving about this burger spot. My thoughts its a fast food burger joint, no big deal. How wrong was I !! Not only did the freshness of their food and the cleanliness of the free standing as well as Johnson City Mall food court location clean but always delivered hot quick service. The... More

By far the worst burger you can get through a pick up window. I know people love fast, quick and simple but why give up on taste. Hot dogs and chili no way, chipped ham ok only if it is a good lean ham day which is rare. I gave up on this restaurant log ago, even with it being... More

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.
