Not quite family friendly. No room for a stroller if you're out for a walk and want to have a bite to eat. Food was OK, not a place I'd go back to again.

Soooo goooood! Behold the power of cheese: I GOT THE NEW THE BOUDIA (boe-DYE-UH) Here's the description from their menu (because I'd miss something): "Dive into our triple cheese sensation.

Diner setting. Don't expect crystal or table cloths but do expect some awesome food. May have to sit beside some drunk college student on Sunday Morning.

Pretty much what you would expect. Good burgers, fries and onion rings. No one was brave enough to try the burger with peanut butter. We said at the counter with the Purdue college students and enjoyed the camaraderie. Nice servers who gave us some tips about the area on our college visit.

Recommended by people at the hotel we are staying at. Went for breakfast and was not disappointed. Larger than your normal serving size and price was less than I paid at Danny's yesterday morning. Food was very tasty. Servers were friendly. People in the restaurant were friendly, too.

Went to this diner two days in a row on a visit to Purdue. Looks like an old-time lunch counter/root beer stand. The root beer is the best I've ever had. The food is delicious. Both served in a noisy, bustling environment. Very fun. Bought a 6-pack of root beer to bring home. Will definitely go back on my next... More

Really cool old time authentic place, famous for root beer floats and diner food - circa 1929. Enjoy a shake, burger, float!

Took our daughter out to lunch at a Purdue Institution. A mug of XXX Rootbeer, two burgers and a fried Tenderloin with fries and onion rings were fantastic. Chocolate Malt was excellent. Blackberry Pie & Lemon Meringue Pie were very good. Server was very kind and patient (has been 25+ years since our last visit) and gave us some advice... More

The food network maps never dissapoints. Perfect burgers, crispy curly fries and very good home made rootbeer. The only negative thing I have to say was that they had no high chair. There are several tables outside and another family had a blanket on the concrete outside while they ate, yikes!

Treated out of town family to a West Lafayette institution. Hamburgers made like we had as kids. The Bar b Que was good as well. Friendly dinner service and don't forget the House Rootbeer
