Stopped on way back from Chicago. Just wanted and got a nice diner burger. Fries and onion rings were diner good. Opted for their root beer cake - which was tasty warmed with a scoop of ice cream. Attentive waitstaff. Would and hopefully will come again.

Restaurant was recommended to me by a hotel employee specifically because I needed some place to eat very early in the morning. I arrived as the first customer of the day at 5:30am. I had the full biscuits & gravy. The biscuit was tough--tasted like it was heated up (or not) in a microwave. Gravy was fine--not anything to write... More

Small town, diner style. What more could you ask for? Triple XXX fills any breakfast craving. It is always so hard for me to decide what to order. I flip flop between biscuits and gravy and eggs different styles. My boyfriend adores the burger with peanut butter on it. This is a must visit when you come to Purdue!

This place is a unique little diner very close to Purdue's campus. We had breakfast and it is your typical diner breakfast, but the atmosphere is really fun because it's counter service only. The kids got milk shakes and they were to die for! I'm glad they couldn't drink it all so I could have some! I think they are... More

I love this little place because it is so unique. They have a burger with peanut butter and it works! It is not a big facility and you eat at a bar on bar stools. I do wish there was some booths. Will forsure be back! Great prices.

This place has been around a long time. I don't know of anywhere else where you can get a burger with peanut butter on it. They have nice frosty mugs of root beer and great milk shakes. The homemade pie is great as well!

It's a small place and it doesn't take credit cards. But the food & drinks are worth the visit. I personally liked the Duane Purvis burger, which includes peanut butter spread on the bun. It is very good. The wife says their root beer is the best she's ever had. They even service breakfast as well. Service was friendly.

We have family that still live in West Lafayette so get back there a few times per year. This place is a must eat for us everytime we are there. We are alumni and it hasn't changed since we were there in the early 90's. We love the food and the college atmosphere. You need to check it out.
