I found XXX through my Trip Advisor research. We're always looking for new burger joints on our travels, and the fact that it had been featured on DDD made it more intriguing. Stopped for lunch after a college visit. We were seated at the end of the counter. My daughter was 'brave' and tried the burger with peanut butter and... More

Service was slow, even though the place wasn't as packed as we've seen it. Drove by it several times taking our son to his Purdue dorm. Heard rave e reviews from everyone who attended college there. Took a while to get someone to take our order and had to ask for straws. When I got my double burger it looked... More

Found this restaurant through interstate signage and a quick look at Trip Advisor and thought we'd give it a try. It was a nice day so we decided to eat outside. We ordered inside and they delivered our food outside even though they had no more car hops for the season. The food was just average. Burgers, fries kind of... More

The price was right. The food was exceptional. The root beer as well. I had a burger with peanut butter and couldn't have been happier.

We stopped there based upon reviews and that whole Diners show, but I truly think I could have saved a lot of money going next door to McD's because the burger was not good at all, and on top of that, paying $8.00 for a burger that probably was frozen at some point and bland fries made it a very...

I knew of Triple xxx from the 70's while at Purdue. Then it was on the Diner and Dive show. So, today was my first visit. Waitress was pleasant and efficient. Food was good, but nothing spectacular. We thought kinda high priced. $2.25 for 16 oz root beer. $8.25 for 1/3 lb burger and fries served in a plastic basket.... More

My daughter is a student at Purdue and kept talking about Triple X so I had to see what it was all about. If you love fast food served in a diner counter type setting you will love it. I had to try the Purvis burger which comes with peanut butter as a topping. I know it might not sound... More

Was on diners drive ins and dives and they live an advertise off of it. Might as well go to McDonald's. Peanut butter burger is gross. Nothing special at all!

I have lived in Lafayette for 8 years and finally went to Triple XXX for lunch. Quite the throwback experience. It was busy, but if you have a sharp eye, people come and go and service is fast, so you can find a stool pretty quickly. On a game day, this statement is probably not very accurate! Very social atmosphere,... More

A must go when you're in the Purdue area. Many of the menu items are named for ex Purdue football/BBall players. If you're feeling adventurous, order the Pervis burger. It's served with a healthy dose of peanut butter. Don't condemn it unless you've tried it. It's a shame it's not open as late as it used to be. It was... More
