Pal's is unique. From it's crazy exterior to the great service. We frequent this chain often and not only is the service fast, it's accurate. They have the best fries - but you had better like seasoned salt. Their prices are very fair too.

There isn't a fast food business in the area that has better service than Pals. I love thier saucy burgers, ham-and-cheese sandwiches, and every milk shake they make. Pal Barger could be a billionaire if the rest of the nation knew of - and could eat at - this restaurant.

Pals is always consistent for a burger and fries. Super nice people. The ham sandwiches are the best!

Place your order from the car window and then drive around to the second window to pick it up! Doesn't get easier than that! But ........this is not your typical drive through! The food is awesome! Never been disappointed!

This is an east tn staple. If you are traveling through you must try it. Fresh ingredients. This and Chick-fil-A is the only fast food we let our kids eat

I have family in TN who introduced me to Pal's. Now every time I visit, I crave the food and have to stop. It's such an affordable fast food restaurant and is known for its sudden service. I love the fries. They have a good seasoning. There is a variety of food to try on the menu. A good alternative... More

This is a wonderful place for fast food! An amazing menu and even faster service. You are always greeted with a smile and the food is always fresh. This is by far my favorite place to eat good fries and a hamburger! I also have many stomach problems and food allergies; so far, this restaurant has NEVER hurt my stomach!

Thank Lillian J
