“Great diner experience”
Reviewed March 1, 2012

If you want the real old-fashioned diner experience, this is it. Great burgers (and chopped steaks) including the 'signature' Duane Purvis All American, complete with peanut butter garnish. Great root beer. Great breakfasts. In fact everything we had in our five or so visits here over during our week in West Lafayette was perfect. Friendly staff. Open 24 hours (apart from late Sunday night/early Monday.) If they had a jukebox of old Buddy Holly and Everly Brothers records this wouldn't just be a great diner - it would be heaven.

“Purdue classic”
Reviewed February 26, 2012

I always heard about their burgers. I always thought it was just a hung-over/drunk student's munchie kind of place. I'm not even a fan of hamburgers, but this place is WAY more than just a great greasy burger! Their tenderloins, root beer floats, onion rings, and much more are worth the trying!! The seating looks crowded when you first walk in, but people there are always so friendly, and there's usually never a wait. The food even comes fast! Love this place!

“Fast, friendly and a very good value!”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

Service was speedy, food was good and I couldn't believe how inexpensive it was. Seating is barstools around a counter in a small, brightly lit building. I would definitely go again.

“Had a great breakfast!”
Reviewed November 20, 2011

We went to the Triple XXX for breakfast and we were not disappointed. I had the "Drew Brees" breakfast plate with chicken-fried steak and sausage gravy, scrambled eggs, biscuits and hash browns. It was perfect! We will be eating here again on our next visit!
