We sat at the counter so we could watch the action and talk to the staff. There was quite a crowd for lunch and we enjoyed talking to the young ladies and well as the senior man. EVERYONE was so nice! We split a 'turtle' shake and I had the taco salad and my guest choose the cheeseburger. We were... More

Well, it was a little early for lunch, but we stopped intentionally while driving from Florence to Memphis. Courteous staff, laid back atmosphere. You can pass on the slugburger. But the chicken salad was fabulous, and the milk shakes were among the best I've ever had. And the prices are too reasonable to be real.

Food was great, malts and shakes wonderful (you even get the mixer container, so they're HUGE). Wonderful old-fashioned drug store soda fountain environment. This is a MUST if you're in Corinth. Too bad it isn't listed as a restaurant. It's listed as an attraction. I'm sure many miss it due to this unfortunate listing.

Borroum's came highly recommended for their burgers! And we were not disappointed! Big, juicy, fresh burgers and hand cut fries! Fabulous! No wonder this place is so crowded at lunch. CASH or check only! We had to run to ATM.

What a super find! The food in nothing out of the ordinary but the history of this building is extraordinary. It was established after the Civil War by a Confederate doctor. It has been the subject of many articles and TV feature presentations. We were lucky enough to meet up with the Great, Great Granddaughter of Borroum, Camille Borroum Mitchell.... More

If you're anywhere near Corinth, Mississippi, it's worth the drive to stop for lunch at Borroum's Drug Store. It's a true piece of Americana with a great menu as well. Suggest you try the Slugburger - even if you just want to get one to share. We had a round of Patty Melts (delicious) and the Ham and Swiss Melt... More

I went at lunch time, and I can see why there are some complaints about the service. However to be fair, amid all the chaos, the servers did a great job of getting to everybody and part of the problem is they do a tremendous amount of takeout, which impacts the speed of service. However it was a fun and... More

Having read the reviews I find I have to disagree with the ones that chastise the store. We found it clean and a fun place to visit. Had a root beer float made with REAL ice cream (not that soft, pasty crap from fast food places), friend had a milk-shake. Shake made with real ice cream in a metal cup... More
