      I don't think I-24 comes into Alabama. What's your Alabama destination? It's a pretty long state.

          I recommend VJ's on the Runway close to the airport in Birmingham. Technicaly, it's a meat & three, but they have a killer reuben and great tamales, so there's diversity there. It definitely qualifies as Mom & Pop place. There's no website with a menu, but you can google it and see some reviews & other info.
