We took our grandsons to Borroum's for lunch on my birthday. The hamburgers are very good and my husband enjoyed the slug burger. One of our grandsons wanted a banana split and oh, my goodness did he ever get a wonderful, huge, old fashioned one. He scarfed it down and enjoyed every bite. Since Borroum's has been in existence since... More

Go here for lunch if you are in Corinth. I recommend the slug burgers or cornbread salad (Thursdays only). Please don't expect fancy. The food is basic, but hot and a few original dishes. My husband's family would disagree that they invented they slug burger (his family made them along with others stretching meat in the area)Do not get the... More

Excellent, large fresh Chef Salad! Iceberg Lettuce, cheese, eggs, ham, turkey, tomatoes and croutons galore! Thousand Island dressing super thick and plenty. Pair with old fashion soda fountain soft drink say a cherry coke for example and yummy yummy!

We stopped in for a late lunch at this unique drug store/soda fountain shop that also has a light lunch menu. The setting is definitely a throw back in time with many of the postings and pictures on the wall have no doubt been there for many years. The food was ok as well as the prices. The staff could...

This small restaurant is also the oldest pharmacy in Corinth! Still has a functioning pharmacy. They have REAL milkshakes.... and get this.... they MAKE their own sodas!!! old timey and great atmosphere. Really recommend that you bring out-of-towners to try this place! (make sure you bring cash)

We stopped for their famous shakes, and were not disappointed! Several flavors to choose from, we all tried something different. The staff was very friendly and welcoming, even got to hear the story of the famous Slugburger. The shakes are huge, our only regret is that we wished we hadn't just ate lunch before stopping!

We went for the milkshakes...and they were great! You'll have plenty to drink, because they are huge. The servers were friendly. You'll need to remember it's cash only, though! There is an ATM around the block.

Spending a day just getting out of the house. Drove about 40 minutes to try this place out due to Trip Advisor recommendations. Did not even go in....sign on door: Accepts Cash or Check Only! Really? You'll take a check but no debit card?
