More a burger joint than a drug store. One of the best burgers ever. Thin patties cooked on a hot flat top so they have the crunchy carmalized pieces outside. Great fat to meat ratio so they are juicey. Fresh tomato, onion, and lettuce. Don't...More

They have the best milk shake in town. Will fill you glass up and bring the remains for you to finish off. Have a good slug burger as well.

Borroum’s Drug is the oldest continually operated drug store with the ‘counter service’ dining the main feature for visitors. Classic American diner food plus a “slug burger” available to try as well. Always go for lunch when in the area.

Had heard a few things about a real soda fountain in Corinth, but the treasure is in experiencing it for ourselves. A crew of real honest to goodness soda jerks, hand dipped milkshakes and creating soft drinks from their own syrup and soda water. Megan...More

The hamburgers are my favorite but there are many tasty foods on the menu. The chocolate milkshakes are a must try as well. The milkshakes are homemade from an original soda fountain. Get there before noon go get a seat before the rush. Be sure...More

We were having some work on our truck and took some time to explore downtown Corinth. We stopped in for a snack. Strawberry Shortcake was great, partner had fries and a chocolate milkshake. Definitely a stop to make again.
