Pal's is a must stop when visiting the Ti-city area. They have hamburgers and hot-dogs that cannot be found anywhere else in the country. The fries are also something special. It would be a shame to visit this area and not stop at Pals.

You can not go wrong with any of the Pal's. They are very consistent in every location but I still like the original Location best. Love the outside picnic tables.

Sweet tea and cheddar rounds in the morning are my families favorites! The sauce burger is an excellent choice and the hotdogs are all beef.

This is a small chain that doesn't feel like a chain because it is locally owned and operated. They have great burgers and a variety of other foods but best of all is a great milk shake in the middle of the night! Don't miss this treat!

The best quick breakfast in town! Cheddar rounds always served hot and seasoned well (not obliterated with seasoning salt.) Friendly and polite staff. And always very clean!

I have frequented Pals for 30+ years. When I return home to visit one of my first stops is here. Not only are they always Clean ( which matters) but there is always quality & freshness to match. It's reasonably priced for fast food and consistent. If I could bring something back home where I live now it would be... More

We frequent Pals and truly love it. It is the best burger, fries and peach tea you can find around town. The burgers are always warm, the fries are always hot.
