These people rock! I can place order and be on my way in four minutes. They are less than a mile from home. I can leave the house and be home in seven minutes. The food is FRESH, good and reasonably priced. All is good, here,

Most Pals are Drive thru , but they are a great value and a drive thru you can trust for great food and great service. There are 2 locations where you can sit outside . Pals has been around a long time and has really branched out in recent years. I'm 57 years old and we used to leave Lynn... More

Pal's has always been a goto for Northeast TN residents. The service is always professional and speedy, while the food is always exactly what you order. The burgers, hot dogs, sauce burgers, and breakfast items (cheddar rounds specifically) are amazing. And you can order any "lunch" item during breakfast! I look forward to Pal's every time I come home and... More

Pal's is definitely fast! I usually get the toasted cheese with bacon, fries and a shake. Frenchie fries are good but the shakes are awesome!

If you ever order cheddar rounds you will be hooked! The melted cheese is mouth watering for breakfast. Get them while they last as these are only served during breakfast hours! The usual hamburger & hotdogs. What stands out? The chile...I even go buy it separate to make other Chile recipes! It's that good.
