This is a drive thru hamburger place. It has high quality fast food and sweet tea. The fries are a must because of the orange salt and the sauceburger is unique. Service is always friendly and fast.

I'm not much on fast food, but it does have its place. Pal's makes me happy just by being a small local chain. It's probably not really better than McDonald's but it's got turquoise buildings and bright yellow signs and employees who don't seem like...More

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.
