Good food but a bit pricey

Decided to grab a meal here after touring Tippecanoe Battlefield. Burger was quite good as was the chocolate malt. However, the lunch total came to over $17 for a burger malt and fries

Excellent food after driving from airport for about two hours. Rootbeer , milkshakes, rootbeer floats, and meals great(named after Purdue football players)! Barstools like drugstore malt shop inside, picnic tables outside. If you leave there hungry it's your own fault.

Our family ate at Triple X after touring Purdue University. The place is very casual. It was absolutely packed at 2 PM for lunch, but we got a seat at the counter. I had to try the burger with peanut butter. lettuce, tomato and the works. I couldn't believe that it would taste good. It was truly amazing! My top... More

I went to graduate school at Purdue University. This weekend I was back in town and visited XXX four to five times. I had breakfast any time of day, enjoyed quick and pleasant service in a nostalgic atmosphere. You have to try the root beer! The best part is the price is reasonable.

This is one of those you have to eat here once type of places. Cash Only, small cramped space and make sure you take a Zegrid before you eat. Don't get me wrong, the food isn't bad at all, in fact the burgers are pretty tasty; but as we mature in life, college town counter service joints should be reserved... More

Heading home from a quick visit to Purdue, we had to stop at Triple XXX! Every college campus should have a place like this. Cash only, you sit at the counter, and plan on ordering quickly. I advise looking at the menu posted on the outside window before heading inside. They have great root beer, and everything I've gotten to... More

A real diner - not one of those manufactured-nostalgia places, an honest to goodness diner where you sit at the formica countertop snaking around the central island and get a good meal for Not A Load Of Cash. Basic diner staples done well; we came in the early AM and so didn't have the burgers, but I can attest that... More

Visited Purdue on return visit from Cincinatti trip. The plan is to visit all Big 10 campuses and must see their football stadium and eat at the best local school restaurant or bar, This place was incredible, up there with the Dixie Chicken at Texas A&M and Eskimo Joe's at Oklahoma State. The food was fantastic, the setting incredible, the... More

Well if you visit West Lafayette more than once, you have to make time to visit Triple XXX for breakfast. If you don't, I think they can issue you a citation or something. Seriously, I can't write anything that hasn't already been written about this place 1000 times. But they know what they are and they do it their way.... More

We were coming home from a campus visit at IU and stopped at Purdue on the way back to Chicago. Called a couple of Purdue alumni and they all suggested Triple XXX. We got there and weren't disapointed. Counter service only, awesome cheseburger and cash only. A step back in time and we loved it.
