Growing up Pals was a weekly meal in our house! Now I live away but it is my first stop each and every time! If only cheddar rounds could be shipped!!

The first Pals was originally opened in Kingsport, TN and has expanded in the Tri-Cities, TN and SW VA area. Pal Barger wanted a simple menu, fast food and good service. The Pals in Jonesborough holds these values still. We love their Frenchie Fries and tea. I usually get a "plain" (unsweet) tea and a large Frenchie Fry. My daughters... More

Last night on the way home from church my wife and I stopped at Pal's in Colonial Height (Kingsport, TN) and purchased two orange shakes. It was a hot evening and these shakes hit the spot. Pal's has quick and friendly service.

It's worth going just to see the building! Fastest fast food place I've ever been to. Enjoy the Frenchie Fries.

The Peach Sweet Tea is the best you will ever have on any day! Fast service and always with a smile. The food is great, just love the tea by the glass or by the gallon! Pals needs to come to South Dakota!!

I was traveling through Tennessee and saw this restaurant while looking for a place to get some lunch. The color and design of the building is what caught my attention. The menu only seems to have a few options. I ordered meals for 3 of us and the food was good but like I said, the menu was limited.

These days, more people than not at least attempt to avoid fast food. Myself included. But there are times when in a hurry, traveling, or a craving will bring you to fast food. We were hitting the road after a sporting event and Pal's had been recommended, so we hit it up. First, it's super funky looking which makes it... More

This is one of my favorite fast food places EVER. When ever I am visiting from North Carolina I always make sure to stop by even if its just to get some frenchy fries to share. Everything they have is awesome. You cannot go wrong here. The Burgers are great, The Ham sandwich is great. The fries are the best... More
