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.

I have been going to triple xxx all of my life and it has really gone down hill since the son took over. The prices are too high for the poor service and bad food.

I have stopped here a couple of times and always love it. The root beer is delicious and the lunch couter style diner vibe is fantastic. I love that it is family owned and the folks there are more than willing to talk about the history of the place and the community. The burgers are great as well. Only reason... More

Yes, this is the one that was featured on Diners, Dives and Drive Ins. It's one of those places you should visit at least once while you're in town. That said, it's typical greasy burgers and breakfast food. We visit the sister location Route 66 on a more regular basis...the menu is basically the same, but more seating and without... More

Triple XXX is an old fashioned diner and the perfect place to sit at the counter and order a big stack of pancakes or a burger. On busy weekends expect to wait.

We visited late on a Wednesday afternoon. The other 3 members of my party all ordered the Duane Purvis All-American Burger. I had the Boilermaker Pete. You just can't beat the ground sirloin they use for their burgers. The grilled onions and cheese made for an outstanding burger. Their root beer is the best. I hadn't been there since my... More
