“Great fast food!”
Reviewed January 28, 2012

We loved Pal's drive thru fast food! We always eat there every time we are in Johnson City. It is beside our hotel, the Carnegie, and we take it back to the hotel's "library" beside the lobby, and enjoy! Hotdogs, sauceburger, and their sweet tea are the best!

“Who wouldn't enjoy a Pal's burger?”
Reviewed January 13, 2012

I just love Pal's Cheddar Rounds which they serve for breakfast only unfortunately. They are great - sort of like a tater tot but very cheesy and round. Now the Pal's burgers are extremely good too. We haven't tried the new one with bacon on it but I'm sure it is great too. The best thing is the "sudden service" - no seating - it is a drive through but we enjoy smelling the food while we make the short drive home.

“The best fast food. The best. You will love it even if you hate fast food.”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

As far as fast food goes, Pal's is definitely a 5 out of 5. I don't even like fast food. I don't eat it. Ever. Except Pal's.
Get the iced tea. Get the fries. My standard order is a chipped ham sandwich, no mayo, add tomato and a plain (Pal's speak for unsweetened) tea with light ice.
Pal's is Americana at its tastiest.

“Very good”
Reviewed May 4, 2009

A very good place to eat. If you want good quick food this is a great place for it. The "frenchie fries" are very good with the seasoning. The burgers are good and thick. Overall a good place.

Rocks! This is a tri-cities only chain. Get a bag full of hot dogs (chili, mustard, onions...the NE TN way), some "Frenchie Fries" and a large Sweet Tea and enjoy!! Not to be missed if you like this kind of food.
