Ordered a hotdog, small burger and fries. The hotdog was very good. The hamburger was above average. The fries were somewhat dried out. If they had been fresher would have been very good, also. Total was $5.89 which is more than I like to spend for a quick meal. I am cheap, what can I say. I would... read more

Everything was awesome on my last visit to Pal's Sudden Service in Kingsport. As always, I had my food within about a minute or two of ordering. Definitely recommend going if you are new to this area!

Food poor quality and not much choice. Chili was out of a can. Burgers not too bad but hot dog not worth it

The only problem I have with Pals, is why in the world haven't they gone nation wide. I lived the past 7 years away from East Tennessee and missed the crap out some Pals.

Good dogs, burgers, fries and drinks, So so breakfast. Worth the trip. I try to visit every time I am in Kingsport. I also wish they had locations in other cities.

I can never go to Kingsport without going to Pal's at least twice. They have the best hotdogs I've ever eaten. The chili is amazing. They're also known for their sauce burgers, frenchie fries, and huge cups of sweet iced tea.

I have eaten better food from vending machines...we ate only a small portion of the food delivered to our table. I cannot understand why so many people rave about this place, it's awful....we will never go back...
