You 'oughta see the looks I get when I tell strangers that I love doing Triple XXX for breakfast whenever my parents visit.

I'll give you a second to gather your collective minds out of the gutter while I begin to educate you on this historic Purdue landmark. 

First, Triple XXX is a family restaurant. And no, I don't really understand the naming. Does Triple XXX mean there are actually six Xs or is it three raised to the third or maybe it's three times three equals 9 Xs. I don't know. Did you get the memo? I'm not a math major. Anyway, it is pronounced "Triple Ex." The restaurant has been around since 1929 and became famous for its Root Beer. Today, it is known for much more than this delicious bubbly beverage.

The great thing about Triple XXX is that it is open 24 hours a day and serves delicious breakfast plates "All Day, Every Day" according to its site. I hope you're hungry. With plates of Biscuits and Gravy that could feed a small army, you better come prepared with your appetite and a shovel

The delicious food doesn't end there. Triple XXX has been nationally recognized for its 100% ground sirloin burgers.  Kslfnjv09 oi 2 (That was the drool hitting my keyboard). If you ever visit Purdue you have to visit this place. 

What makes it truly great though is its environment. Everybody sits at the bar that bends around the whole restaurant and often times you sit facing a complete stranger. However, almost everybody has one thing in common, we bleed black and gold. This common bond makes it easy to strike up conversations with complete strangers. And of course the 24-hours are extremely appealing to those students who find themselves out late at night ummm...uhh...studying.

A quick look at the menu and you know you've arrived at Purdue. Meals are named after Purdue greats such as the Bernie Flowers All-Pro, The Leroy Loin, and the Drew Bress Special. However, the meal you have to get and my personal favorite is the Duane Purvis All-American. It is 1/4 lb. of 100% ground sirloin served on a toasted sesame bun with melted cheese on top with lettuce, tomato, pickle, Spanish onion and French fries and...wait for it...add thick creamy peanut butter on the lower deck and dig in. I know, sounds crazy right? Try it once and you'll be hooked.

Nothing sums up a late night or early morning or mid-afternoon or brunch or late dinner or study break or...well, you get the point quite like the Triple XXX. Three things in life are guaranteed death, taxes and the Triple XXX being open. Dig in and Boiler Up!

Until then...Ever Grateful, Ever True. Boiler Up, Hammer Down and Hail Purdue!
