Roadfood between Atlanta and Birmingham on I-20?

I will be traveling from Atlanta, GA to Birmingham, AL on I-20. Is there any good road food to eat along the way? Thanks.

    Pops charburgers in Heflin, AL used to have some good greasy fast food type burgers, haven't stopped there in years though. They are just north of I-20 at the main Heflin exit. Otherwise I have been making the trip between the ham and the ATL for 30 years, not really anything worth mentioning.

    Yep, used to do that run in the old days when you had to get on US 78 as I-20 stopped at the state line. There was a Dairy Queen in Bremen or Villa Rica, but that was about it back then.

    Nowadays, Atlanta sprawl I'm sure has exponetially expanded the fast food options, but true roadfood, not sure.

    Pop's still has a fantastic burger, and the butter scotch shake is know state wide. I love that they have managed to last years after someone put a Hardee's next door.

    There's a decent BBQ in Villa Rica, but it's off the beaten path in town. Otherwise go to Pop's. Anniston, AL has a place downtown (can't remember the name) which also has good burgers.

    Gumbeaux's in downtown Douglasville is the best Cajun in metro Atlanta - and great roadfood.

    When in B'ham be sure to go to Jim 'N Nicks and Dreamland!!! Two awesome BBQ places!

    Ditto on that! I like the red beans, rice and sausage.

    In Birmingham

    AVOID The Whistle Stop Cafe in Irondale,
    downright nasty and greasy. The most dissapointing stop on my 2005 ballpark trip. It made me downright ill.
