This is our FAVORITE breakfast spot. In & out quickly! I mean quick. They've mastered what fast food should be without sacrificing quality items & excellent taste. You HAVE to try the cheddar rounds!!! Yummy!!!

Pal's is always great for a quick meal on the run! Burgers have more than three condiments. Frenchy fries have good seasoning on them.

Went to Pal's to get tea for a party. The tea was delicious as usual. However I thought the tea was already in gallon jugs but they brewed it fresh for me.

Pal's is a local franchise of fast and I mean fast high quality food. It is similar to White Castle, but not, if you know what I mean. It has won the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award and has set the standard for clean, fast service for years. If you are in the area and see a light blue building... More

Nostalgic, retro, "sudden service" drive thru is a local Tri-Cities tradition dating back to the mid-50s. Get a "Big Pal" and a Frenchy Fry to see what the fuss is all about! The burgers are tasty and consistent and the fries are to die for. As great and fast as the food is, notice how nice the people are. Watch... More

This little drive through is amazing in terms of food quality,quickness of service, and friendly workers. My three children who live away now, always put a trip to Pals on their list of most important things to do when they come home. They have even delayed their departure times in order to make a Pals run.

My husband and I may be on the verge of becoming addicted to Pal's iced tea. It is simply the best, and always fresh. We typically bring home a gallon at least 3 times per week. The staff is incredibly sweet, and always has a smile. I believe they go out of their way to satisfy the customer. Our son... More
