Pal's is is one of the best for great food if you are strapped for time. They have a good selection of food and great tea. In my opinion it is one of the best managed fast foods in the tri-cities.

Pals is a legend in East Tennessee. I have had friends who moved away from the area bring a cooler specifically hot dogs back when coming home for a visit.

(This review applies to all of the dozens of locations throughout Northeast Tennessee.) I usually don't bother reviewing chain food, but Pal's is a bit of an exception. If you're unfamiliar with the Tri-Cities area or just passing through you might avoid an unfamiliar bright...More
