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

After visiting Corinth we had planned on visiting the Drug Store as it is listed as the old fashioned side fountain store. Maybe we were too late, lunches done and winding down. Who knows, but every single table needed clearing, still not to be outdone, we waited for the waitress to clear a table and sat down. We should just... More

This is a sure stopping place when we visit Corinth. The patty melts are divine, the milkshakes heavenly, and the people are absolutley wonderful. Borroum's is one of the many treasures of Corinth.

In our search for the famous slugburger, we were directed here as we were told that we would enjoy a visit to the drug store as well as the food. We were told correctly...we visited for lunch on a Friday and the place was very busy but the staff was friendly and we did not mind our short wait. All... More

Make sure you stop here for a milkshake or some good homemade chicken salad or pimento cheese. In fact, you will love everything on the menu here. Fast and friendly service are always on hand for this local favorite.

This is like a step back in time. You can cozy up to the bar & watch the waitresses make all of the drinks (soft drinks included)! The milkshakes are out of this world. Hamburgers & French fries are a must. There are other sandwich type items on the menu. If you want a seat on Saturday at lunch, get... More

Go back in time...Mississippi's oldest still operational pharmacy and diner. Fabulous real milkshakes, good burgers, daily specials (Corinthians love their cornbread salad) and you must try one of Corinth's specialties, the slugburger (don't worry, no slugs involved). Fountain drinks also, and it is nestled in a beautiful downtown area with many nice little shops within walking distance. A must visit... More

I have told my daughter about a drug store that I used to go to as a child that made cokes from syrup and I was so glad to be able to let her see what I was talking about. We also ordered a vanilla milkshake that was awesome. The milkshake was served in a shake glass and the extra... More

If you're older than 40, you'll remember going to the drugstore for a malt as a child. Well, just step back in time as you sit at the counter and enjoy the same taste of those great burgers you enjoyed growing up. The menu offers a good variety of foods. I've had several cheesburgers there, and they're always great. The... More
