The grandkids love it.

While I am not a hamburger/hotdog aficionado my children and grandchildren and now daughter in law insist on eating there as often as possible when they are in town. I am basing my 4 stars on their opinion. It is drive thru service only and quick.

Just a great place to dash in, grab a couple of their fantastic dogs and get going again. Breaks my heart I can no longer order their peanut butter shake due to the onset of an allergic reaction but if you can you must order one

World's best peanut butter milkshake . . . hands down! We have tried them everywhere and drive out of the way to get Pal's. Please don't change a thing. Oh . . . and the hamburgers and hotdogs aren't bad.

Great food and friendly staff, I would like to see a menu out front to review prior to ordering window as I feel pressured to order quick due to such a great turnout.

We have been going to Pal's for 8 years now and we have never received anything in our orders that has been incorrect. They always nail it. It's good food - made to your specific order - always consistent and with today's busy schedules, that counts for a lot. Keep it up, Pal's!

Great local drive thru chain with national honors. This chain could easily go national. A little higher than most fast food, but worth a visit if you're traveling thru the area. Pals chili dog & a sweet tea is my usual order. Try the cheddar rounds during breakfast hours.

Pal's fills my cravings, whether for a chili dog, sweet tea, big pal, or frenchie fries. I don't eat here often, but I like it when I do. Yum. Go Pal's!
