Kenny’s Barbecue

Corinth, 38834
Reviews:
Great barbecue shack! Lots of other good options too, including banana pudding, fried pies and milkshakes! And, then of course, there's the fried hotdog! Keep an eye out or you'll drive right by it! If you don't want slaw on your BBQ sandwich be sure and tell them because they didn't ask.

Reviews:
One of the oldest fast food restaurants in Corinth which has lately gotten a lot of new competition with Zaxby's and Popeyes moving in and the Texaco station across town. Fried chicken is best at prime times when you can be reasonably sure it is freshly cooked. My favorite on the menu is their chicken pot pie which has nice crust, good quantity of meat in the filling.

Papa John’s Pizza

2019 Highway 72 E
Corinth, 38834
Reviews:
I have placed several online orders for a large original crust, The Works and enjoyed them. Occasionally the driver may not find us as quickly as he should. This review is based more on the MANAGEMENT RESPONSE from my last pizza order debacle. I place an online order for a large The Works original crust at 7:15pm. At 8:15 after no word or sign of a driver, I give them a call and inquire about the status. I was told it hadn't left the building yet but it will be in a minute. After about 15 minutes the driver appears, tells me that it is hot because it just came out. What was inside that box turned my stomach. I was unhappy with the product, temperature, texture and topping arrangement and even lack of some toppings. I sent an e-mail to their customer service that night titled "pizza order sucked"....... Quote "I placed an order tonight and what I got was unbelievably nasty. ( order #298832579 ). I waited 1 hour after placing the order before calling to see where it was. I was told it hadn't left the building yet but it is within the minute. It arrived COLD and SOGGY, I only live a couple miles away. There was entirely too much sauce making for the "unbelievably nasty" comment. You couldn't tell if you were eating an onion or a mushroom. You only know it wasn't meat because there was a serious lack of meat topping. My husband and I debated over whether to order from Papa John's or Pizza Hut. The prices for the same pizza was less than a dollar difference. I told him I liked Papa John's crust better because it has a hint of garlic. Well, needless to say this one didn't and it will be like pulling teeth to get my husband to order from Papa John's again.......how could I blame him?" I got an instant automated response thanking me for my comments. The next night I got a phone call from management of the local Papa John's and he was very disappointed and apologetic. We discussed how that was not a normal representation of their product and also by adding more sauce, it cuts into their profits. I told him I couldn't stomach one slice and if that happened to me he can be assured it is happening to others. He did offer a free product as an apology, I have not taken him up on that offer because it was truly a bad experience. I told him I may try again in a couple weeks. Update: 9-2-14 A couple weeks ago I had a bad experience with Papa John's, but management was cooperative and offered a makeup meal to prove their quality isn't truly lacking. I placed an order for the usual 'The Works' on original crust at 6:45 and that pizza was at my doorstep at 7:07 and piping hot. This review update is for the product itself and not the speed of service. This pizza had heat, plenty of toppings and even meat was visible. The pizza sauce has changed in some way over the past couple months, because this pizza was inedible. The sauce is watery and gives the dough it touches a " raw dough" texture and taste. I put the pizza in a slow oven and cooked it for about 22 minutes and it did dry out the crust, but there is an unpleasant taste and mouth feel from the sauce. We didn't eat the pizza and this is our final attempt to stomach one. Pizza Hut prices are only a few cents different and the quality of their pizza hasn't wavered in years.

Little Caesars Pizza

Highway 72 E
Corinth, 38834
Reviews:
Best deal in town on Pizza, if your preference is for plain or pepperoni. During prime hours, standard pizzas at unbeatable price. Once did a taste test at Christmas with employees at my business and in a ballot over best pizza from four different establishments, Little Caesar's thin crust was picked the best by majority of around 20 voters. I avoid the thick crust pizza here which looks good but the crust overwhelms the toppings. Regular orders for other than ready-to-go pizzas can be called in or placed on site for waiting.

Pizza Hut

904 Highway 72 E

Reviews:
This visit on 8-26-2014 is a much better experience than the last time I tried to eat in here several years ago. It was so bad then it put me off Pizza Hut pizza for years. The current decor is much cleaner, more inviting and upbeat with the sports theme. The aluminum table tops give it an industrial look and feel, but at the same time offers a more sanitary atmosphere than the sticky wood tables. The 'wing city' logo on the bar type tables gives the feeling of being in a larger metropolitan area without leaving your small town. The buffet was kept replenished with a variety of pizzas, with varying crust thicknesses. The salad bar was clean and orderly, no cheese in the cucumbers, no errant tomatoes bobbing in the dressing. The buffet could offer more pasta choices than the one multi-style noodle with cheese. Overall, the taste and freshness of the product were shockingly good. The improvements were really noticeable to a former disgusted patron. As long as this level of quality is maintained I will continue to come back, as well as, suggest friends and family to give it a try. Update: since we've been routinely visiting throughout the end of last year until now for the buffet, the quality and taste have been spot on. We still will not order a pizza online for delivery because the quality is not there. I'm not sure what the difference is, but there is clearly a big one. When we walk in to eat the buffet we place a request for a thin crust sausage, my husband's favorite and what we order online for delivery. They make one and it is always good. The new "sauce shots" for enhancing the pizzas are not necessarily a move for the better. I know Pizza Hut must continue to create new gimmicks to peak interest and entice customers, but the sauces we've ate on the buffet pizzas are really a distraction and unappreciated by us. To each their own.

Sonic Drive-In

1107 S Cass St
Corinth, 38834
Reviews:
I normally don't review nationally franchised restaurants since I've come to view them primarily for the passers-through and those who seek the routine rather than the distinctive in local cuisine. Am making an exception for this Sonic which is the only restaurant remaining in Corinth of what was really popular here at one time- drive in's. Most notable in Corinth were Bruce's and Fraley's but I'll try to update and elaborate with some historic photos and details later. Ask Abe at Abe's Grill about Jack and Jill's where he started his esteemed food career. Will also have to admit Sonic is a source of a couple of guilty pleasures- their foot long chilli dog with cheese is heart burn on a bun but it satisfies a periodic craving for me. Onion rings are not found on many local menus and Sonic's are pretty good. If you want the best in my experience, go to Corky's Barbeque in Memphis or Connie's Chicken in Tupelo. I've hear others swear by their fresh limeade and lemonade and a hot fudge ice cream cake.

Chapman’s Restaurant

251 County Rd 745
Corinth, 38834
Reviews:
A landmark in our area- Memphis people drive down just to eat here. Some of the best catfish in Corinth without a long drive to Pickwick along with a varied menu to please everyone in the crowd. Seafood buffet on Friday and Saturday nights is locally popular, as is a Sunday luncheon buffet. For big city folks who've forgotten what the stars look like when you're away from the light pollution of urban areas, check out the sky when leaving Chapman's if the weather is nice. As I drove by today on my way to Memphis and stopped to take a couple of YELP pictures, I also realized another odd but interesting fact about this restaurant. In Northeast Mississippi, known as "hill country", you are traveling in what I refer to as the "Alps" of Mississippi. The highest point in the state of Mississippi is near Iuka in nearby Tishomingo County at 806' above sea level, unless you picnic you won't be dining there. The highest point in Alcorn County is Crum Mountain 725' above sea level located probably 5 miles South of Chapman's and, if you can reach it, unless you brought a picnic you won't be dining there either. Chapman's Restaurant is about 670' above sea level which probably qualifies it as the highest altitude restaurant in the State of Mississippi. Don't expect snow and skiing except on rare occasions, we still are in Mississippi ya'll. Since I first wrote this review, I've eaten here several times, including last night on my birthday as well as many times over the prior 30 years or so before YELP ever came into being. The fried catfish, hushpuppies and slaw are among the best examples of the traditional way catfish has been prepared in this area for a hundred years or more. Quail is another featured item which I've never eaten but once was the reason for a visit to the area by a somewhat forgotten in history then Vice-President, Spiro Agnew who enjoyed quail hunting. My son enjoyed the steamed crab-legs with melted butter. We came late and the buffet was somewhat lacking so if that is your objective, try to arrive before 8 pm.

Pizza Grocery

800 Cruise St,Ste A
Corinth, 38834
Reviews:
Great dining experience in Corinth MS @ Pizza Grocery. Beautiful location, great re-use of an older building in town, airy Coffee Bar (opened in April-May 2015). Some craft beer on tap (6) to include Sierra Nevada Torpedo and Lazy Magnolia Southern Pecan. For dessert offered beignets (served with honey and/or nutella) - light and delicious. Has capability of hosting large parties.
I was alone on a business trip. I was surprised they were on a short wait on a Wednesday night. They offered me a seat at "the bar"; extremely accommodating. The Greek salad was very tasty and a bit innovative. The Pasta Alla Norma was also tasty. The lightly fried eggplant rolltini being another creative twist on an old standard.
Rustic and charming exterior? Check. Active railroad track nearby, proving you are truly in the Crossroads? Check. Outdoor dining area for use in perfect weather conditions? Check. Ample seating with room to move about? Check. A dimly lit, but pleasing to the eyes basement/cellar? Check. Varied menu offering choices for all ages? Check. This one dining spot seems to have it all and is in the process of expanding upon the already expansive menu offerings, by building a coffee shop within or in addition to. I ordered the house smoked duck and sausage pasta. This was as perfect a pasta dish anyone could want. The ratio of sauce to pasta was spot on. The intensity and depth of smoke in the duck rivals any bbq joint. The flavor of the sausage was intense but not overwhelming. The duck was sliced and placed atop the dish and not buried in the sauce. I was truly awestruck at this dish altogether. I ordered a half order and it was an ideal amount of food. I didn't have leftovers, but I really didn't want to eat reheated duck, so with dogged determination I finished it off. I wish there were more "smoked" menu items than just the duck. I did notice that they have added a cornbread salad to the chalkboard. My next mission will be to see if they can dethrone Borroum's from cornbread salad royalty yelp.com/biz/borrums-dru… Pizza Grocery's method of serving the salad intrigues me. The ingredients, which include grilled corn cut off the cob, are layered into a mason jar and the diner inverts the contents onto a bed of arugula, with cornbread on the side. A note to tourists and out of towners, don't assume that all of the cars in the parking lot are there for Pizza Grocery. It is a shared lot. At least check seating availability before deciding to dine elsewhere, because you will miss out on a Devine meal. I wouldn't recommend a sandwich, the Italian ordered was nothing exciting. They offer special menus weekly and checking Facebook before visiting could lead you to an even more exciting dining experience. As of this week (8-22-2014) they offered Tuscan Ribeye *Fresh herb marinated 16oz ribeye, served with potato and leek gratin, crispy prosciutto, Italian red wine roasted cauliflower, and black pepper butter.

JT’S Falafel & Kababs

1012 Hwy 72 E
Corinth, 38834
Reviews:
I traveled with friends to buy shoes at Austin's. It was lunchtime so we stepped into JT's. What a fantastic place! I had Fatoosh with chicken swarma- a perfect lemon dressed arugula salad with pita chips topped with delicious Mediterranean spiced chicken pieces. I will have to come back for this again. They were out of baklava, so I have another reason to return.
My husband is the finickiest person I have ever met. It was a complete shock when he told me he wanted to try JT's. I had tried it before when it was in the tiny building at the 72/Cass intersection. We tried a couple of simple dishes. Mine was a chicken shawarma. The shawarma, hummus, kababs and baba ghannouj are pretty tasty. I have made hummus at home and mine agreed with my palate better than the hummus made here. Mine wasn't as tart. We've ate here a few times and each has been at my husband's request. Still can't get over that! The owner was very friendly and spoke to us as we finished eating. He asked if there was anything he needed to do to improve the food or service. We couldn't come up with anything. There is absolutely no other place like this in town. Their Facebook page has been listing items that seem out of place, but I will have to try them. Fish tacos, chicken Parm and angel hair pasta dish?? Doesn't sound Greek, but WTH do I know. To Each Their Own.
We love this place. We lived in Saudi Arabia for a while and enjoyed eating the Shawarma wraps sold there by street vendors. We could not believe our eyes when we saw the menu here. Very authentic EASTERN Mediterranean food cooked by the real deal chef. Unpretentious, reasonably clean (that's why it doesn't get the fifth star) dining area. We eat here regularly. Grilled veggies, fatoosh salad, falafel sandwich, ayers meat pie, meza plates, gyros, kebabs, fish tacos, etc, etc, ALL good.
