If you come to Tri-cities, don't miss coming to 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,

Every time we visit Kingsport we seem to always make a round to Pal's. We generally run through the drive through on Ft. Henry, but we finally ventured downtown to the original. Food is the typical Pal's diner food, but here you can at least walk inside to order and pick up. I have always wondered about the cleanliness of... More

We always stop by for breakfast. I like the cheddar rounds though i couldn't finish eating a full order. I also like that you can order anything on the menu at breakfast - not just the breakfast items. It's fast and not too expensive for fast food.

I always like pals and everything they stand for and serve. I enjoy many things on their menu and gave them great rankings in the past. But the new Lil Philly is awful. The meat is so tough and processed it was hard to even chew. This was the first thing I've had at pals that I couldn't finish.
