Really good burgers. My wife and son love the peanut butter burger although that's not my choice but every time I have eaten here, it has been very good. Small inside but a great place to stop when visiting Purdue.

Stopped here on Saturday on way to the championship game in Indy. Stopped on the sun on the way home very good. Had roughly 30 mins wait. Well worth the wait

On the hill but on the level. Ha Ha. We had to walk up the hill to get there. Great food. Chocolate milkshake was my favorite thing with breakfast that is named after Drew Brees.

We went twice in a weekend, once for lunch and once for breakfast. It's cash only but they have a low fee ATM inside. We arrived with a big group of visiting fans and waited a while but worth it for sure. The root beer...More

Were in town for a college visit. The first restaurant suggested by 2 different people from the area. An historic local landmark that doesn't disappoint. Classic diner with dishes named after former Purdue athletes and of course the famed Triple XXX root beer. And the...More

This was our first visit to West Lafayette, so looked around for some local flavor while there. The Triple XXX Family Restaurant had great reviews, and more importantly a line out the door, so every indication we were in for a treat. After a short...More
