Never have to wait for fresh made food here. As soon as you order and drive around to pay your food is fresh made , and always great. Love Pal's sweet tea, sauce burger, & frenchy fries.

Pals food is addictive. However, it is very salty and people should be wary of sodium content. Best sweet tea!

The original Pal's Sudden Service is on Revere Street and is a walk-in to order business, then eat at the covered picnic table area or your car. At this location, there is a mural depicting the history of Pal Barger's concept of the "legendary" eatery....A must see in local history. This place knows Fast Food. Most locations are drive thru only. Except for the occasional backup during peak mealtime hours. You order and by the time you can get to the other side of the building, and open your wallet, you'll be greeted with your food and drinks. Yummy chili on hot dogs, burgers, ham sandwich and of course Frenchie Fries. Gotta try it.More
