Great food!

If you are ever in the Tri-cities area, you must try Pal's. Favorites are the sauce burger, chili dog and their seasoned fries and you can't forget their sweet tea! This is not an eat in establishment but don't let that stop you from going! You won't regret it!

This is one of the finest ran establishments ever. The employees are topnotch good people of excellence. From working in the food industry, I had to pick a restaurant to inspect during my training. I chose Pal's. It is so clean, inspection ratings are at the top. The menu has it's own personality, one item being the sauce burger. It... More

The natives around here suggested this place for burgers. This is a drive up only restaurant. Be prepared to be in a line of cars! I think there were 15 cars ahead of me, but they went through very quickly. The burgers were ok, the fries excellent.

Everyone who lives or has lived in Northeast Tennessee, has had the opportunity to expirence Pals! Pals, specializes in Burgers and Shakes, which are extremely good. This company uses soy meat, which is good, although different from your average hamburger. Pals, is especially known for their sweet tea, and cheddar rounds. You definitely need to give them a try, because... More

One of my favorite places to get a quick bite to eat (or drink). Really like the idea of ordering, driving around the building and picking up my food. The Hot Dogs, Pal Burgers and Peachy or Razzy tea are my favorites.

You can easily find this place because they have HUGE 3-D CONCRETE FRENCH FRIES attached to their building.. Really. The dog and burger chili is our pal's homemade recipe that he shares with us. Pal's is a place to see and be in Kingsport, Tennessee.

Ok, been out west and everyone said to try In-N-Out burgers because they are supposed to be amazing. However, those burgers don't hold a candle to a Big Pals with cheese. Keep on keeping on and having traveled the length and breadth of the land I still haven't found a chain burger to compare.

A long standing burger place (though it seems not appropriate to call it that) that has the best hotdogs, milkshakes and sauce burgers (known for)! Has received a national quality award reserved for corporations because of their service, product and their buildings. Just look for the building with a hot dog, French(ie) fries, and a shake on it and that's... More
