Anyone know of good, casual, interesting lunch places between Louisville KY and Decatur AL. Kinda Diner, Drive-inns and Dives type.

    check out this link from Southern Living:

    (there's a decent and silly restaurant near the wigwams we stopped at, I don't recall the name, but they cook both standard fare and "if you shoot it, we'll cook it")

      Thanks. Where are the wigwams?

        I am so sorry--we drove from SF->NY via LA, and we passed at least 2 sets of wigwams en route. I thought that one was in Bessemer, AL, off of I-65 (completely abandoned), but from what I've just looked up, it appears that the Bessemer (near Birmingham) location is noted everywhere I've looked as simply "gone".

        Have you tried a search on I-65 BBQ? This list looked interesting:
