Everyone must go to pals for the hot dogs. Its a local icon and their sweet tea is to die for. There are people that go everyday and get their sweet tea fix before work. Also the Chicken sandwich and fries are very tasty. You must go to Pals at least once while you visit. Dont be caught not knowing... More

This location is one of favorite Pal's. The staff is always professional in that they don't use condensing terms such as "honey" sweetie" or "sugar" and they service the customer in a timely manor. I have visited this location about once a week for many years and they have yet to mix-up an order. I love their tea and coffee... More

When we pulled up to place our order in the drive thru, we were thrown off by the names of the food/drink items and the condiments for each food item. It was our first time there. Example, There was a Frenchie Fry and a Sweetie Tea etc. On the menu. I ordered a chicken sandwich however the way it was... More

We try to visit Pal's when we are visiting the area. We only go for breakfast. The biscuits are good and my son loves the gravy biscuit. Personally, we don't care for the food after breakfast. Totally take out, although there are a couple of parking spots in the front so you can eat in your car.

Tried this place for the first time this weekend. Reminds me of a mom and pop hamburger place which I heard was the roots of this place. The food was solidly good. I ordered to hamburgers with fries, sweet tea, and a chocolate shake. The sweet tea to me was not very sweet, which my friend loves, but I prefer... More

Good burgers and fries too. The peach tea is very good and not too sweet. Service is "sudden" as they advertise.

The one and only fast food place where you don't need to double check their order. Their staff is fantastic and very professional. This place runs like a well oiled machine and is consistent throughout all of their locations.

Everything was awesome on my last visit to Pal's Sudden Service in Kingsport. As always, I had my food within about a minute or two of ordering. Definitely recommend going if you are new to this area!

Ordered a hotdog, small burger and fries. The hotdog was very good. The hamburger was above average. The fries were somewhat dried out. If they had been fresher would have been very good, also. Total was $5.89 which is more than I like to spend for a quick meal. I am cheap, what can I say. I would definitely stop... More
