Roadside joint, old style counter type restaurant with juicy burgers and crispy French fries. The root beer is icy cold and delicious. Make sure you stop by for the experience if you are in the area. Bring cash as that is all they take. There is an ATM in the building.

If your on the road from Chicago to Indy, or the reverse, on I-65 take a short detour at the W. Lafayette exit, slow down,enjoy the tree lined river drive and cruise up to the XXX Burger. Perfect 1/2 way point to eat and refresh with a cold beverage (Non-alcoholic). Excellent Burgers and Fries will nourish you and coat your... More

If you're visiting Purdue and want to eat at one of the oldest and most well-known establishments, you need to eat at Triple X. They have eggcellent breakfast options and their root beer is the greatest these lips have tasted. Traditional diner style and the service is usually fast. Great stop before or after a Purdue football game.

You can't drive by and not wonder what is inside that funky orange building! We didn't know that Guy Fieri had been here, but we can see why. It is one of those "real deal" kinds of places that is fun and delicious at the same time. I'll be honest. It wasn't the absolute best hamburger I've ever had, but... More

My husband and I have been regulars here for several years. We keep returning because of the excellent service and consistently good food. I have never had a bad meal there, and the servers are very accommodating with my menu requests; it truly is cook-to-order. If you like hanging out with the locals, chatting with the wait staff and meeting... More

Eating here was a fun experience. There are only bar stools inside but there are a lot of bar stools. There were a couple of picnic tables outside. The staff were very friendly. We tried one of the burgers featured on the Diners, Drive In and Dives show. It was a burger with peanut butter on it! It was good.... More

Don't let the chance to eat breakfast or lunch here pass you by. Not only delicious homemade food, but value and history are included with your meal here. We came twice for breakfast and will be back again when we come to visit our grandson and watch him play basketball at Purdue. #boilerup and eat at Triple XXX, or their... More

Went to the Triple XXX Family Restaurant after a football game. Line was out the door, but it moved fairly quickly. Service was great and food is not fancy but tastes great. If you are not counting calories - get a shake - and/or try the "Drew Brees" - SO GOOD!!!!

My husband remembers coming here as a kid. Very 1950's. Hamburgers were good if you like skinny flat burgers. I, myself like those very fat juicy burgers. My husband had the Boilermaker Pete with onion rings and I had the Bernie Flowers All-Pro with fries. Try the onion rings they are good. The root beer was very good. We even... More

Retro burger joint that has some history. Kind of interesting and amusing to check out, but food is pretty much right out of the 50's. Nothing there for people who don't like fried animal flesh. It looks like most people ate thin, wide hamburgers fried on a grill, served with french fries. The root beer is pretty good, as you... More
