Triple XXX Family Restaurant, Lafayette, Indiana

If I was a student at Purdue University, I’d probably eat at Triple XXX a few times a week. Not because it’s gourmet dining. Not because it was on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. And not because of the ambiance (although, it is a cool old diner). The food is fast, and in the case of some of breakfast dishes I saw come out of the kitchen, the portions are big.

So, we both ordered the Bernie Flowers All-Pro burger with all of the toppings. The burgers at Triple XXX are ground on the spot – I saw it with my own eyes, and cooked up on a hot griddle. Topped with onion, lettuce, tomato and Miracle Whip, all on a toasted sesame seed bun. I liked the texture of the burger, and the toppings were fresh. But, the burger wasn’t seasoned at all. After adding a bit of salt and pepper, I chowed down on it and enjoyed. Anita felt the same way – the burgers just needed seasoning.

I had onion rings on the side. Good, yummy, onion rings. I could have eaten two sides of onion rings. They were good.

Anita had curly fries on the side. Though good, she felt that there weren’t that many on the plate compared to the size of the orders of regular fries we saw around us.

You know, I’d go back to Triple XXX again. I’d like to try their breakfasts. Everyone around us was enjoying them.
