The food and service at Pal's is always outstanding. I have made special trips for their peach tea and frenchi fries. The sadwiches are always hot and fresh. I've never had an experience less than excellent at Pal's and woul recommend them to anyone. Pal's is a must-try!

You have to have the Frenchie Fries and one of their Peanut Butter milk shakes. If the iconic architectural decor doesn't grab you....the Junior Burger with cheese Or chipped ham sandwich will.

The Big Pal and hot dog with Frenchie Fries and a BigTea are more than enough for a quick lunch. If you still have room their peanut butter milkshakes or Orange Delight are a cool treat! You will not believe how fast the order comes through. Seating only at the first Pals at picnic tables. Every other is drive thru... More

We stopped here on the way out to Colorado and were so impressed that we stopped on the way back! Couldn't ask for nicer service and the burger was one of the best fast food burgers I've ever had! They have an orange cream milk shake that tastes like an orange Creamsicle! YUM! Do yourself a favor and stop here.... More

This location and the one at 327 Revere St. are drive-through only. They look like the the funky blue buildings pictures here, not the red and white restaurant. Great breakfast. Small menu with mostly biscuits and breakfast meats. Don't miss the cheddar rounds.

I grew up in Kingsport but moved away 25 years ago. Everytime I come back, whether to visit or just driving through Pal's is on my must stop list of places. I crave those saucey burgers and frenchy fries and just wish I had one of these in GA. Want to experience an East TN treat go here and eat.

Pal's was good but not great. Fries had good seasoning. Service was very fast and friendly which is what Pal's is known for. I would eat there again.

Great food and milkshakes. We eat there at least once a week and have milkshakes more than that lol. Of you come to the south east you really must try this fast food place.
