The burgers, fries, and shakes were the best we had ever eaten! The burgers were much thicker than the ones we were use to. This location also offers a... More

These people rock! I can place order and be on my way in four minutes. They are less than a mile from home. I can leave the house and be home in seven minutes. The food is FRESH, good and reasonably priced. All is good, here,

Pal's has always been a goto for Northeast TN residents. The service is always professional and speedy, while the food is always exactly what you order. The burgers, hot dogs, sauce burgers, and breakfast items (cheddar rounds specifically) are amazing. And you can order any "lunch" item during breakfast! I look forward to Pal's every time I come home and... More

Pal's is definitely fast! I usually get the toasted cheese with bacon, fries and a shake. Frenchie fries are good but the shakes are awesome!
