What are your favorite Birmingham-area "hole in the wall" dining establishments?

I'm talking grocery store deli counters, unique/tasty bar food, gas station hot lines? Unhealthy, fattening, fried stuff. That's what I'm talking about.

I'm curious and want to know Birmingham-area 'hounds.

I'll start:
Calera/Montevallo Exit 228 - I-65 - headed

The Texaco Gas Station at this exit has a hot line that I stumbled upon earlier this year during a random mid-morning stop there. The lady that cooks the food has been doing it for years - I believe her family owns the gas station . On that particular day, I sampled some of the crunchiest, golden brown, lightly breaded okra and catfish that I have ever had the pleasure of eating. I will be back.
