Try the Slugburger if you have never had one. It is a local favorite. I had a great homemade cheeseburger and they steam the buns. The milkshakes are amazing. Take time to read about the history of the place. The first drug store in Mississippi and still has a pharmacy in the back.

One of the oldest drug stores in Ms. Has civil war relics, old pharmacy items, stamped tin ceiling, pharmacy in the rear, soda fountain, and serves lunch on limited basis. We stopped in and strolled around looking at many artifacts in the store and had a "shake for Two" for $5 which actually end up being equal to 2 regular... More

The front desk staff at our hotel recommended this old-fashioned drug store with it's soda fountain that takes you right back in time, located on a main street of downtown, small town Corinth, MS. After visiting the Corinth Interpretive Center we meandered over to Borroum's for an 11:30 early lunch to find the place packed out. A little miffed we... More

Visited for lunch. Tried a slug burger for appetizer and then followed with a real homemade cheeseburger for lunch. The burger was excellent. The staff is friendly and service is great. It was fun to have lunch in an old style drug store with the old time amenities you would see many years past. A fun experience and great lunch.... More

What can I say, Borroum's is a MUST stop in Corinth! Not only is it the oldest operating drug store in the entire state but also one of the best places to get a world famous Corinth "Slug Burger." Great food, great atmosphere, and great history all in one stop!!

A quaint, old fashioned soda shop. The seating is a bit limited, but the staff is friendly and it's a great atmosphere. We enjoyed ice cream there, the best part to me was the Jelly Belly dispenser near the front.. my first but not last experience with several flavors! Nice afternoon stop.

I have eaten here several times and each time the food has been great. Unless you're lucky you may have to wait for a table especially around lunch time. The menu has a fairly large selection and prices are reasonable. There is also an old fashioned ice cream bar and large jelly belly selection.

Me and my coworkers come here quite a bit. This is such a great place to eat. The hamburgers are made out of fresh ground beef that they pat out when they Cook it. I love the fried chicken wrap. I get that everytime I go there but one thing is I always have to split it with a friend... More

If you have never had a real slug burger, this place is where you need to get one. Google search the history on this fine establishment and be sure to stop in.

My husband and I frequently eat lunch here. The food is great, the service excellent, the shakes are to die for. It can get very busy at lunch time and you may have to wait. Enjoy the old fashioned ambiance of a soda fountain. This is just a special treat.
