Great hamburgers

I drive by a Pal's everyday and I stopped in alot to pick up dinner. I just love the chili cheese burgers. The service is very fast. And the tea is best in town. They have never gotten my order wrong.

I went to ETSU for my MS. I am from Middle Tennessee and had never seen or heard of Pal's. I'll admit that my first impression was that I could never eat at a blue building with a hot dog and hamburger on it. I'm glad to say it didn't take me long to visit with friends. We used to... More

I love Pal's Resturants. I wish we had one in FL! They have great shakes, tea, ham/cheese sandwiches and wonderful seasoned fries. My wife and kids love the cheesy tots!

We regularly pick up food from this location. They are fast and accurate every time! No complaints here! The fries are a favorite for sure and they will make a chocolate/peanut butter milk shake that is wonderful!

My son and I love going to Pals and whether we stay and enjoy our meal at their picnic tables or take it with us to enjoy beside the river, it's always a favorite! Keep up the good work Pals!

Hands down, the best at fast food of any place I've ever been. Super fast service from friendly employees, even in the high-pressure, close quarters of the small restaurants that are Pal's signature. If you miss anything about the Tri-cities, first will be your loved ones, and second will be Pals!

Pal's is a local fast food drive through chain restruant but it is #1 in East Tennessee! You have to admire the ability to serve, smile and get an order straight! Plus the buildings with a giant hot dog and fries are a must see! Enjoy!

One of the best fast food restaurants ever. Food is always good, fast and right! Can't say enough about it. Years ago, when I worked retail near a Pal's, we were able to go inside to order (instead of having to drive thru) and it was ALWAYS clean and spotless,

Stopped at Pal's for lunch today. Their food is always fast and probably the best fast food around. Always a good experience
