Stopped here for lunch. Hours are 11-5, so plan accordingly. Just an absolute time capsule. Booths, malts, great food, friendly staff, all types of candy, nick nacks and fantastic photos. Still owned by family of founder from 1865 - 7 generations! Worth the stop.

You would not believe places like this exist save in old films. This is a pharmacy and a soda fountain so you can sit at the counter if you wish or take a booth. We took a booth just so we could have a good look around and it's well worth it. The food is at first sight about the... More

I come here alot. They have the best food around. I love their fried chicken wrap and their hamburgers. They have great shakes and good service. This is one of my favorite places to eat lunch. It is home owned and operated by local people that have had this this business in their family for generations.

Love Borroums, always fresh and homemade. Milkshakes are awesome. Slug burgers , albeit unusual, are the best!

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
