Triple XXX Family Restaurant

2 North Salisbury Street, West Lafayette, IN - (765) 743-5373

I have stopped at Triple XXX occasionally over the years since I first visited it forty years ago while attending Purdue University. The place has literally not changed. The food is still outstanding diner food, the atmosphere is still the same, and I think the stuff hanging on the walls is the same. I enjoy it, and will certainly be there again soon. I took my wife there today for her first visit and she really enjoyed the tenderloin sandwich, and my burger was excellent, as was the root beer. Good things just get better.

The Duane Purvis All-American features a layer of peanut butter, hidden underneath the beef patty.  As for a side, those greasy hand-breaded onion rings are a winner!
