Go to Pal's any time around lunch and notice at the long line of cars waiting for their turn at the delightful chili dogs. The line moves quickly and the choices are limited. Score a couple of chili dog's and find a nice place to sit to eat them, Pal's is certainly not gourmet fare, but if you have a... More

Not sure what the fuss is. The burgers are just okay. Sort of like school burgers. Same with the chili dogs. The frenchie fries seem to be frozen crinkle cut and the strawberry milkshake is a disgusting blend of pink chemicals in ice milk. People rave about the food and wait in long lines to get it and for the... More

Seemingly popular. Usually long auto lines. Sort of slow service. Food not a culinary delight. Just another fast food. No indoor eating.

Magnificent - my only complaint about this franchise is that there is no place to eat on the premise ! You gotta take it home or to the park !! But, it is unique to this area, extremely fast, friendly staff, very clean & the food is excellent !!!

We are all addicted to Pal's tea. Sometimes have to stop by more than once a day. They have great seasoned fries and their cheddar rounds are a must for breakfast, so good and filling they can be a meal all by themselves. I haven't eaten anything that I didn't like and it really quick, super clean drive thru.

We eat at Pals quite often. They are by far the fastest restaurant ever. That is an amazing feat since the food is fresh & made to order. Always friendly service & very clean & well kept establishment.*Plus, they give dog treats to our dogs!

My boyfriend and I stopped by here last night for the first time. We both got the bacon burgers with cheese, they were so good. I wish we had a pals in our town but I'll say driving 90 miles to eat it was worth it.

We visit Pals on a regular basis. Fries are awesome. Have never received anything I didn't like. And the tea is addictive.
