We were visiting our son at Purdue and went here for breakfast on Saturday morning. It is old style Root Beer stand so only counter seating and you might have to wait a few minutes for a seat when they are busy. Good quality food,...More

Great burgers - what more can I say? Bacon cheeseburger with lettuce and tomato and “Hellmans” mayo (sorry not miracle whip). Fries were good and service spot on. Cash only - FYI

We stopped here on our recent road trip based on the Food Network/Guy Ferrti's recommendation. We were very disappointed. Cash only. Cramped counter seating only. Burgers are thin and dry. Nothing special and not worth the drive into town from the freeway. Skip this one.

A not-to-be-missed stop if you are in West Lafayette. The food is traditional breakfast and burger fare with a twist. Who would think of peanut butter on a cheeseburger, but it was delicious! If you aren't looking for a large meal, stop in for a...More

Went to the Triple XXX restaurant for dinner the other night. Loved the root beer. Liked the wait staff. Wait staff very attentive. Burger excellent. Did not try the one with peanut butter. Brace for "battered diner decor."

We greatly apologize for the inconvenience regarding the seating. We should have asked the customer to move the vehicle so that you could be seated. Will make note of your input and pass it on to management and staff. Again, we greatly apologize. If you...More

Prices for the main items generally run between $7-$11. A diner in a college town means reasonable prices.
