Make the XXX your burger stop while in W. Lafayette. Great location on the hill. Like Bruno's, they definitely give a nod to Purdue history with the Duane Purvis peanut butter burger, etc. We kept it simple with a round of Bert Burgers and fries. It lived up to the hype and is definitely a really good old school diner.... More

Triple XXX is a definite must stop if you are in the area. Of course it was featured on Diners, Drive ins, & Dives as well. The burgers are pretty good, the biscuits and gravy are ok, not my favorite. The root beer is very good. It does get crowded, so it's busy to go early or definitely not when... More

I am originally from West Lafayette and when I come to town I always stop either at Triple XXX or Route 66 Diner (sister restaurant) for breakfast. You can't go wrong with the Nick Hardwick special...any meal covered in delicious gravy will start you day off right.

Thank you for stopping in while you are back in town in your old stompin' grounds. The Nick Hardwick is a great breakfast choice- if you are really hungry and need some good sausage gravy! Thanks for coming in, glad you enjoyed your visit. Come back & see us soon! More

My wife and I stopped in to eat. I've been here before and knew she would love it. Every seat is and old school sit at the counter. Reminds me of the places from my youth... I know food network did a show there. But it's the old town college feel that's is really what makes it worth while to... More

Was there for lunch...it can get crowded as it's not a very big place. All counter seating, diner style. It's kind of a greasy spoon, but very old school feeling from the 50's or 60's. The root beer is spot on. It reminded me of the Little Brown Jug on Indy's east side from the 60's. I had the triple... More

Triple XXX has been around forever and there's a good reason. The food is great! Diner with fantastic breakfast but my favorite is the burger & fries. Can't go wrong with the shakes either.

This place has been here since dirt. Great food and atmosphere. They also own route 66.....and I don't care what Guy from Diners Drive ins and Dives says the Purvis is what it is about!

After driving by this place for a number of years while attending an annual conference we met up for breakfast today! Classic diner stepping back in time. Food was good and the coffee was hot. And they only take cash. Back in time!

This is a fun place to go when you are not in a rush and want a good Purdue University lunch experience. The place is popular so be prepared to wait during peak times and on game days. The root beer and Drew Brees breakfast were both great. Will definitely be back!
