Cute *real* diner

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... read 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.

We stopped in here on our way from Chicago to Indianapolis and really enjoyed it. The lineup was out the door when we arrived so we ordered take out. We were impressed when it only took about 10 minutes to get our order up even with how busy it was. The burgers we ordered were cooked perfectly and tasted great.... More

Close to the Purdue campus, this counter only diner is a classic. The food is good and the prices low--my egg sandwich was $2.25!! My sons had the hamburger special made with peanut butter and loved it!! It is cash only so be prepared.

Small diner with great food and friendly staff. Burgers and breakfast food are all pretty good. And they sell bottles of the jalapeno ketchup to go! Definitely worth a stop if you're passing through.

old, kitschy, and cool. Good food, better staff. Lots of old photos of past Purdue icons. Just a neat place. Cash only, though.

Came for dinner, took the peanut butter burger. First bite is alright, but it is a little bland after a couple of bites. The fries were crisp, the onion rings were nothing to write home about. The service and root beer were great, the cleanliness, burgers and sides were not, I wont go out of my way to go back.

This was a impulse stop for a late lunch as I noticed the parking lot for Triple XXX was more than half empty. Besides the Triple XXX Root Beer this drive in looking restaurant is known for its interesting burger choices. I chose one of their meal combinations. While I think my steak and fried potato with coleslaw and white... More
