This place is fantastic! It is a drive through with an expansive menu. Not a bad thang' on the menu. Try the Burger or Hot Dog Combo Special shown on the billboard for a filling and cheap meal. Priced right to feed hungry families. Located in the middle of yuppy Restaurant Row. You will... read more

The food is always perfect and everything on the menu that we have tried I'd absolutely delicious. This place literally has it all from Burgers, Steaks, Wings even Soup Beans & Cornbread. And the Milkshakes are awesome with many different flavors. The staff is always very friendly and very helpful with any questions about the menu. And my favorite part... More

You can't beat the value of the Burger combo! Always fresh and made to order. We also like their subs and fried pickles. Those are the items we order most often. We lived in Kingsport for years before someone told us about Purple Cow. We've been regular customers ever since!

A local recommended this to me and I tried it. I wish they had a menu BEFORE you got to the window to order, as you actually give a human your order, not a speaker. Drive Thru service only. HUGE menu with fair prices. I tried a 13 in steak and cheeze w/ fries. VERY good! Youll wait in line... More

We often call in orders to Purple Cow and pick up on their side lot. Hint, hint! That beats sitting in the line of cars which often backs out onto East Stone Drive. The down side is that traffic is pretty congested so be careful in their lot. Food is always well prepared and delicious. My wife's favorite is the... More

It's worth it if you are looking for something fast and economical and want to try something new. The decor is tacky and the colors are tired but the food was decent. We didn't know what to order because the menu is huge so we just went with the basics. If you get a jumbo soft drink ask for little... More

They have a friendly competition with Pal's, I think both are great, They have excellent hot dogs and the cheesy hash browns are to die for. Cheap and fast cant wait to try other menu items, wish they had these in kansas
