The title asks it all.

      Sorry, Mississippi.

      If I remember correctly, a friend of mine is from Corinth and, if she is to be believed, there is nothing worthy of anything there. Of course, I often feel that way about Jackson - the land of too much crime and no French films.

        Corinth is home to the slugburger. I've never had one, but some people love them. I believe the White Trollye Cafe right on Highway 72 serves them.

          With a name like TROLLye Cafe, I wondered if this were less than serious.
          Nope, it's for real, or someone has gone to a whole lot of trouble making a whole bunch of websites.
          Here's one that explains a lot:

            It was a typo.

            I basically live there, but go elsewhere to eat.

            If you want to drive, head north to TN, then east on highway 57, almost to pickwick, and stop at the hole-in-the-wall Pickwick Catfish Farm. Try the smoked catfish - they're phenomenal - or get the fried fish (very good). This is ~30 minutes from Corinth. The place doesn't look clean but the food is awesome.

            Don Julio's has decent Mexican food - just like a million other places, I suppose you could say. If you want a really great lunch, right across hwy 72 from Mcdonalds is a new place - JT's falafel stand - they have EXCELLENT chawarmas and other middle-eastern food, if you like that sort of thing.

              What about that little diner on the highway- I forget the name, but they serve burgers and stuff and it only seats maybe 6-8 people...

                Abe's? Breakfast is great there (if you can find a seat) but I've never ate lunch there.

                As for slugburgers in general, I love 'em but simply can't eat them. Everyone ought to try them - once, anyway - though.

                  Yep, that's the place! I just found their web site:

                  I've only been once, but it was a lot of fun- I'll certainly go back- nobody could argue about the prices!
