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

Always quick service and consistently good food at all locations. A Big Pal with cheese and fries makes for a great meal. The Cheddar rounds at breakfast are the best treat in town!

At the location in downtown Kingsport, they have the best Peanut Butter Milkshakes that are unique to that location. We stop by there and get one every time we are by that area of town.

There are very few restaurants that keep consistent delicious and hit food. Pals has a great menu, fast service, and very clean facilities.

Walk up and take order to go or outside to covered area. Simple menu of burgers and hot dogs. The chili burger reminded me a lot of The Varsity in Atlanta. Vanilla milkshake was ok. Large size was a little too ambitious for my hunger level. Service was fast, helpful and friendly. Good place for quick lunch or dinner.
