Tried this place for the first time this weekend. Reminds me of a mom and pop hamburger place which I heard was the roots of this place. The food was solidly good. I ordered to hamburgers with fries, sweet tea, and a chocolate shake. The sweet tea to me was not very sweet, which my friend loves, but I prefer... More

Good burgers and fries too. The peach tea is very good and not too sweet. Service is "sudden" as they advertise.

The one and only fast food place where you don't need to double check their order. Their staff is fantastic and very professional. This place runs like a well oiled machine and is consistent throughout all of their locations.

Everything was awesome on my last visit to Pal's Sudden Service in Kingsport. As always, I had my food within about a minute or two of ordering. Definitely recommend going if you are new to this area!

Ordered a hotdog, small burger and fries. The hotdog was very good. The hamburger was above average. The fries were somewhat dried out. If they had been fresher would have been very good, also. Total was $5.89 which is more than I like to spend for a quick meal. I am cheap, what can I say. I would definitely stop... More

Food poor quality and not much choice. Chili was out of a can. Burgers not too bad but hot dog not worth it

The only problem I have with Pals, is why in the world haven't they gone nation wide. I lived the past 7 years away from East Tennessee and missed the crap out some Pals.

Good dogs, burgers, fries and drinks, So so breakfast. Worth the trip. I try to visit every time I am in Kingsport. I also wish they had locations in other cities.
