We enjoy the food, fast service, clean, friendly staff. The tea is great. Frenchie fries and cheddar rounds are favorites. Shakes are really good, burgers,ham sandwich, hotdogs all are good.

This is one of the best fast food restaurants in the Tri-Cities. Prices are reasonable, service is great, and the food is prepared just the way you like it. You’ll really like the Milk shakes and peachy tea.

Best fast food in the tri-cities area. Always consistent, rarely any errors, nice and friendly employees. From the unusual exterior to the training these employees receive, it is a highly unusual experience from other fast food chains. Delicious food and the best sweet tea.

Pals is like a automotive assembly line. A standardized process which every one has a job to to and everyone does it. Associates are trained to the process and it works. Of coarse, it would work any where in the US.
