The atmosphere was fantastic, just like an old timey drug store with the soda fountain, there was a huge collection of 25 boxes of indian arrowheads on one of the walls. We had a hamburger for lunch with a shake afterward. The shake was really good. The wait for the food was about 30 minutes, but the food was good.

Old-timey and very small old drug store with retro lunch counter. Food looked good, but we went in for ice cream - which was GREAT! Very sweet girls serving us too. Thanks girls!

I took my 2 year old and 6 year old here for lunch while we were in town. When we walked in, there wasn't a place to sit, which I took as a sign that the food and atmosphere would be wonderful. We ordered to go. The person who took our order was rude and abrasive, offering little help to... More

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
