Pal’s Sudden Service with Bonus Mufflerman

Pal’s Sudden Service with Bonus Mufflerman

The facade of the Pal’s Sudden Service chain has to be one of the best around. Normally I wouldn’t say such things in polite company but, look at that huge wiener!

Back in 2012, when Kenny and I were heading towards the Shady Valley Country Store on TN 421 (The Snake) we happened to zip past a Pal’s. As you might imagine, I couldn’t resist stopping.

At the time, I had no idea that it was a chain. In fact, there are 29 different Pal’s locations. There’s a Pal’s in Johnson City, Tennessee. That joke writes itself.

The Pal’s in Kingsport, Tennessee does not have a huge wiener but we won’t hold that against them. What is does have is a hamburger-holding mufflerman on the roof. I’d say that makes up for it. He’s a bit on the pale side, don’t you think? Even so, he was good company as I enjoyed my burger and “frenchie fries” outside on the patio.
