This little place downtown is always packed and for a good reason. It is still a functional drug store but you can also get a great milkshake or malt, some really good burgers, or stop by the jelly bean machine with tons of choices. There's...More

Borroum’s Drug is the oldest continually operated drug store with the ‘counter service’ dining the main feature for visitors. Classic American diner food plus a “slug burger” available to try as well. Always go for lunch when in the area.

Had heard a few things about a real soda fountain in Corinth, but the treasure is in experiencing it for ourselves. A crew of real honest to goodness soda jerks, hand dipped milkshakes and creating soft drinks from their own syrup and soda water. Megan...More

We were having some work on our truck and took some time to explore downtown Corinth. We stopped in for a snack. Strawberry Shortcake was great, partner had fries and a chocolate milkshake. Definitely a stop to make again.

Enjoyable place, a little inconvenient because they don't take a credit or debit card. There is also never a place to sit. Milkshakes were good though, and the kids enjoyed.
