“diner & soda fountain since 1946”

Brent’s Drugs opened its doors in October 1946 with the completion of Morgan Center, the first shopping center in Mississippi later renamed Woodland Hills Shopping Center.  In 2014, Brent's owners took on a renovation, bringing Brent's to the modern age while keeping its beloved charm. The soda fountain and classic bar stools remain in the original 1946 location and are still a gathering place for friends and neighbors alike. Decades and generations later, Brent's Drugs continues to prescribe soda fountain favorites and Southern hospitality.

This is your typical soda shop that all 50s diners try so hard to imitate. There is one huge difference with Brent's, they are the real McCoy! Brent's has been around and slinging soda and shakes since 1946. Almost all of their ingredients are handmade onsite. The staff is super friendly. The building is old so when they are cooking you will feel the heat and smoke from the grill a bit but it's acceptable, Remember how old this place is!
Good things to know:
- Breakfast is served during set hours
- Vegan options are better for breakfast
- Gluten free might be tricky but not impossible
- Vegetarian friendly
- Good for groups
- Good for kids
- non- smoking
- no outdoor seating
- accept cards and cash
- serves beer ( and root beer)

The atmosphere here is that of a classic 50s diner. Their milkshakes and burgers are amazing.

Really good burgers, best grilled cheese with bacon, and amazing shakes! Really friendly service and a great place for the whole family. Looks old and run down from the outside, but that's part of the charm! Don't be fooled by the appearance, this place is delicious!
