PALS

PALS had great burgers and peach tea. It is a drive through but the quality is excellent. It is my favorite fast food burger. I hear the hot dogs and frenchie fries are great too.

I love me a good hot dog and this place has it going on!! Chili is out of this world kind of good! Now I'll have cravings for them, but will have to travel 250 miles to get one! Might just be worth it!

Pals by far is the cleanest fast food place you will ever eat. Standards are set very high. Love their Peachie tea. Wonderful service and good food. It's not a 5 star gourmet restaurant but you will get consistently good fast food.

I f you live in Tennessee, you love PALS. Different from any other fast food, you'll get really "Fast" service! You order at one window, drive to the other side and you're handed your order. Yummy dogs, burgers,milk shakes, and yes great iced tea! PALS is a regional chain, but the owner has won national awards for his concept! Forgot... More

A wonderful fast food restaurant that will always be a hometown favorite. Seasoned Frenchie fries are always hot and tasty. Fresh tea and burgers too.

I love Pal's Tea and Hot Dogs. I would drive a long way for them. Their other food is good but these are my favorite.

My wife and I stopped here just cause of the nostalgia looks of the place. We pulled up to one side of the building and they took our order which was just a Ham and cheese sandwich. No ordinary ham and cheese though. It had chipped beef on it and special sauce with lettuce tomatoes . Paid for it on... More

Best of the best! East Tennesseans who happen to move away always have "Pal's drive-by" on the list when they come back to visit! It's a must! Award winning! Literally!
