“Fast food& shake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Greatest place to drive thru and get what you want quick and easy. Prices to high of course, but what you going to do. Wish they served cheddar rounds all day!

“Pals "other" menu.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

I have known for years about ordering a few things that are not on the menu. Do you like the sauceburgers with cheese? You can order a double sauceburger with cheese, it is very tasty and a meal in itself, you always order double Big Pals and the like. Someone recently asked me about Pal's "secret menu". I googled that and found out they have a few more options that are not on the menu, like a different flavor of tea. But my fave is the double sauceburgers with cheese...so yummy...I do love the Bar B Dogs too and hope they stay on the menu.

“Southern Appalachia's In-N-Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Pal's is as much a "must" experience for visitors to NE Tennessee / SW Virginia as visiting an In-N-Out where they exist. The iced tea and "Frenchie fries" are regional staples. Don't be alarmed by the length of the drive-thru lanes - they move fast. The chain has a well-deserved cult following.
