“Fast food the way it's suppose to be.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2013

I have ate at many of the Pal's locations in the area, from the very first one in Kingsport that you walk up to the window. Pal Barger the owner and creator of this chain of "Sudden Service" drive thru fast food has several now. and besides the fast service and I mean fast, they have it ready as soon as you can get to the pickup window, is it's cleaniness record. If not the best rated for food places by the Tn dept of inspections.

Great food, from burgers, ham&cheese, sausy burgers known only at Pal's, hotdogs that are in a class off their own. Prices are very good too for working folks. Try a double Big Pal with Cheese ... This is the star item on the menu. Just good tasting food. Pal's has been around a long time and still going strong. Locations everywhere, check the website.

Don't forget breakfast too, Fast service.
Located on Old Gray station Rd., in Gray, Tn.. 37615

Look for the BIG American Flag at all Pal's locations.

“Drive-through only but WORTH eating in your car!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2011

Pal's has been around locally since I was a child. This is THE place to go for hot dogs, chili buns, hamburgers (the BIG PAL), and chipped ham and cheese sandwiches. They also have the BEST and BIGGEST sweet iced tea in the world. Their "Frenchie Fries" also are out of this world (although you might skip those if you are on a low sodium diet)! Wash all the tasty deliciousness down with one of their unbelievable milkshakes and you will be all set!

It is drive-through only, but people generally take these treats home to devour them. You order at one window, then pull around, pay, and get your meal at the other window. Well worth trying when you are in the eastern Tennessee area!
