My husband and I live about 2 1/2 hours from West Lafayette but we spent the weekend in Chicago and decided to stop here because we saw it mentioned in a magazine about the Hoosier bicentennial. This is a true diner. The only seating is counterpoint except for a few outside metal picnic tables. The service was friendly and fast.... More

Glad we went here as this seems to be a West Lafayette institution. Service was friendly and since we were here during the off season (summer), it wasn't crowded at all. Loved the time warp interior with the wrap around counters. Not a great place for large groups as there are no interior tables and all seats are counter seats.... More

Great food, hot filling. Friendly staff. Fast service. Building small but we ate outside on the patio.

If you're looking for an authentic family atmosphere, look no further. The food was good and the root beer off the chart! Hope to return some day. Helpful Hint: bring cash; and if you want an inside seat, bring patience.

We read that this was a good pit stop between Indianapolis and Chicago. So glad we went! Great burgers, shakes, and best root beer for miles! Featured on the food network.

Outstanding breakfast. Biscuits and gravy was better than my Indiana grandmother. Return for lunch for the root beer and a pork tenderloin sandwich. Food and strive was outstanding.

We loved to counter only seating. The breaded tenderloin, onion rings and frosty mug root beer made for a perfect meal. The 1/4 lb burger was a little small, so choose something bigger! The breakfast foods looked very tasty. Will definitely return. This is a cash only restaurant, so go prepared.

Our son recently graduated with his 2nd degree from Purdue and is moving to Chicago. We will miss this friendly little joint. I loved that I could eat hamburgers and fries at 9 am or breakfast food at 10 pm. I love how you sit at the counter facing other patrons. We have always had someone strike up a conversation... More

I was in town for an event at Purdue U and stopped by the infamous Triple XXX Diner. I must say that my expectations were high given that the diner has been featured on Diners Drive-ins and Dives. It’s neat that the décor is reminiscent of the past however it seemed dingy and the floor was not well maintained. I’m... More

I love the burgers here. The root beer is great. My nephew is very picky and he very much like it as well. You need to bring cash as it's cash only or there is an ATM in the building. It is very small and could use a an update but food is great.
