Every time we travel to this area, Pal's is the first place we go. Definitely not the healthiest digs, but oh-so-very worth it! The have the best sweet tea and the chipped ham is to die for! Never change, Pals!

I am originally from this area and my first stop when I get home is Pal's!! Love the fries, burgers and sauce burge with cheese! Everything is good!! I have actually driven an hour to get to the closest Pal's to me just for a burger and fries. :)

We often go by the Pals drive ins in Johnson City, TN to pick up burgers and fries to eat at home. The burgers are very tasty and well made. The milk shakes however, are just terrible. Not sure how they manage to make ice cream taste so bad.

It's a drive thru. Not supposed to be the greatest meal but good in a rush. All Pal's are not the same as they were in the 60's when a hamburger was a hamburger. They just don't taste as good as they used to.

The food is fresh and you are treated with respect. It is a very efficient drive through. The chili is very, very good.

A staple in Eastern Tennessee. Every time I come home we stop to get our fix. If you have never been here before, stop and order anything, you will not be disappointed.
