Very rude. Period. Sat at the bar and felt very un-welcomed. I hope this isn't a representation of the city of Corinth. I'll never go back.

Amazing food is found here in this little piece of history. The slugburger, a sandwich with a history you can read more about when you visit, is one of Borrum's more famous main courses and a personal favorite. Another fantastic choice is the Patty Melt, which does as its name suggests: melts in your mouth.Their sodas are a great compliment... More

Some restaurants have character but it is artificial. Borroum's Drug Store and Soda Fountain has authentic character. It has tasty food, fast service, and a charm not often found today.

Historic, one-of-a-kind, and delicious! Best cheeseburgers in town. Iced tea like mom makes. Their slug burgers are a staple. But beyond that, there is always a daily lunch special like Taco Salad, or turkey club wrap, and not to be missed - the Cornbread Salad.

This place has great food and great soda (of course ;) I also got a banana split milk shake and I wasn't to impressed with it. It was good but not any better then any other milk shake. We also got cheeseburgers, which were great. The onion rings are awesome. And the slug burgers are also very good. If you... More

Wonderful place to visit. In business for 150 years straight, located in one of the old downtown businesses. Originally a drugstore which added a lunch counter, many years ago. Now a thriving restaurant with part of the old drug store remaining for display. Staff very friendly, wife and I both had BLTs, which were wonderful. She got hers toasted, they... More

This is a very unique place! The oldest pharmacy in the state of Mississippi, with Indian relics all over the walls - it's like a museum, with old apothecary bottles and medicinal antiques...not to mention the old fashioned soda fountain with counter and stools! The best patty melt around - it's always packed...people wait for first come first serve seats.... More

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.
