We heard about this place so we wanted to try it. It was absolutely delicious! Root beer was great, cheeseburgers, and fries. They make a marshmallow brown sugar dip for the sweet potato fries that was amazing. You should definitely go here.

During a day trip, my husband decided to surprised me by taking me to the XXX. I had seen it featured on one of my favorite shows "Dinners, Drive-ins, and Dives". I had been wanting to go for awhile. Well, I ordered "The Barney", which was featured on the show, it was good, but, didn't live up to the anticipation.... More

The Root Beer is the best I ever had and the burgers are great. The hand ground meat makes the difference.

On a recent business trip to Lafayette In, my wife an I decided to stop into XXX for diner. It had previously been reviewed on DDD. The atmosphere is nostalgic diner. White counter top and Naugahyde diner stools. The staff was courteous. Being a block off campus and in the middle of dorm town, the food fits for college students... More

If you visit Purdue University you must have a meal at Triple XXX. nothing morally or ethically corrupt here. No tables in this small place only stools at the counter. I suspect there are 30 or so spots. It is an old fashioned diner style "greasy spoon". Great for breakfast or burgers and their popular root beer. Food is very... More

Found this gem on a recommendation from a friend. There is only counter seating available here. Food is awesome. Try the chili. Famous folks like Drew Brees have eating here. There is even an omelet with his name. Try the XXX. It's great.

Interesting little diner near Purdue campus. Fun place to stop if you are in town. But a long way from the interstate and not really worth the drive just to visit this place. Great service; good root beer; average plus food.

Been here 100 years and still great. Wonderful place to take any international friends or youngsters who might not have experienced sitting at a lunch counter to eat before. It's your basic greasy spoon menu with a nod to some famous Purdue athletes. Unfortunately no longer 24/7, but still open late. Be prepared to wait outside to be seated on... More

Everything here is delicious! You can get breakfast all day, but the burgers are great too! My favorite is the Purvis burger, a hamburger with peanut butter on it...it sounds crazy but it's really good. The root beer is served in a chilled glass, and the milkshakes are great too. It is a great dining experience, one I loved as... More
