Very clean

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.

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.

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!
