“#1 Fast Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Have been going to Pal's for over 50 years! It is a quick drive through with no seating, though some may have picnic tables outside. At least their original one downtown does.They really know how to get the food ready in a hurry.They also won the very prestigious Malcom Baldridge award a few years ago. At that time they were the only restaurant to have won it. Love their hot dogs and chipped ham sandwiches. After many people have moved away from the area, Pal's is their first stop when they come back for a visit to Kingsport.

“Great Fries-Ok Burger”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

Tried Pal's for dinner because it was ranked #3 for resturaunts in Kingsport area and I love a good handcrafted burger...The Fries were great but the burger (Big Pal) was just ok...Was expecting more flavor from the "patty"

“Going down hill”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

I have been going to Pals for over 30 years. The food has been going down hill and the prices up. Cost over 7.00 for a hamburger fry and hot dog. The last two times I have gotten a big pal it was burnt. Thought I would give it one more try and I can now say I will not go back...... Service and speed is the motto but they need to go back to quality of food.
Going going gone no more a Pals customer....
