The 10 Best Diners in Mississippi!

Coca-Cola, cheeseburgers and fries, comfort foods—these classic American icons were made popular with the help of mom and pop diners. Having been around for decades, the diner still hasn’t gone out of style, much like the iconic foods they serve and the friendly, know-your-name service that comes along with them. Though the menus have evolved through the years, you can still find all your favorites and more at these 10 best diners in Mississippi.

1. Abe’s Grill, Corinth, MS

It’s as unique an experience as the outside of the building would suggest. As the oldest diner along Highway 72, you’ll find some of the best homemade biscuits you’ll ever taste. This diner will have you pining for the good ole days, because you just don’t find them like this anymore.

2. North 11 Diner, Picayune, MS

From its humble digs to comforting menu, this is the authentic diner experience. They’ve got a little bit of everything, including burgers and fries to spaghetti and lasagna. Daily specials will vary, giving you plenty of reason to come back another day. 

3. Ajax Diner, Oxford, MS

This award-winning diner holds many titles, but when it comes to diner food, it should only be known as a homerun. Offering lunch and dinner in a fun, festive setting, you can treat yourself to their full-service bar and huge selection of soul food.

4. Borroum's Drug Store and Soda Fountain, Corinth, MS

As the state’s oldest fully operating drugstore and soda fountain, this classic combination is nothing short of nostalgic. You can still get counter service just like the good old days, where they’re making fresh malted milkshakes, burgers, and other tasty treats. There’s a candy store on site, and the shelves are lined with vestiges from their lengthy history.

6. Weeks Diner, Booneville, MS

In business for over half a century and counting, Weeks Diner is the epitome of nostalgia. This cozy little downtown eatery is just as it was decades ago, still serving up the best slugburgers in the area. (Note: no actual slugs are used in the making of slugburgers.)

7. Brent’s Drugs, Jackson, MS

This hometown apothecary and pharmacy has a diner of yesteryear tucked away inside. Reminiscent of an old-school soda fountain, guests can get counter service on swivel stools while sipping milkshakes or filling up on burgers and fries. They’re also open for breakfast.

This no-frills diner is dishing out all your favorite southern comfort favorites. Things like hand-pressed burgers, fried catfish, and club sandwiches are no strangers to the menu. They’re also well known for their catering services.

9. The Deli Diner, Collins and Ellisville, MS

With two locations, this made-from-scratch sandwich shop doesn’t skimp on quality. They make the hoagies and buns in-house, along with other types of bread to make your meal taste nothing short of exquisite.
