I have to drive to Tennessee just about every week, and had tried Pals, mainly out of curiosity, since we don't have the chain anywhere near where I live.

If you are short on time and looking for something to eat, then Pal's is the place. Great burgers and the sweet tea is the best around.

Moderately fast service with a smile. One could even call it 'Sudden Service'. Just the place to take someone on a date.

I love their "Frenchie Fries". Unique to the Kingsport and surrounding area. People who used to live here and moved away have to have tea, hot dog, and fries when they're back home for a visit. Fast, efficient service.

One of the originals from Kingsport, TN. Pal's has the best Ice Tea, Hot Dogs and French Fries around, bar none. Originally, started in Downtown Kingsport now they have locations throughout the region. So try a Pal's Tea, Hot Dog and French fry sometime.

Famous for their unique buildings and food offerings such as cheddar rounds (awesome!!!), sauce burgers (husband loves them), tea (which I find to be hit or miss). Worth the trip

I would give it a 5 if they had a drive thru. Cheddar Rounds are the best for breakfast. I wish they had them all day!
