6/13/12 Triple XXX

Not on campus, but certainly a landmark, Triple XXX is a diner famous for their peanut butter "Purvis" burger and trademark root beer. It's the oldest drive-in restaurant in Indiana.

Triple XXX Family Restaurant changed its hours on July 1. The restaurant will no longer be open 24/7.

After 31 years of catering to Purdue and the West Lafayette/Lafayette community, the landmark has chosen to take the business in a new direction.

Greg Ehresman, co-owner of Triple XXX and Route 66, said the change has been a topic of discussion for several years.

"(We are taking) a new direction and its time to reinvent Triple XXX," he said.

According to Ehresman, the amount of business lost out on was something that they considered before the change, but that as of now, the amount of business has only increased from what they were previously doing.

The new hours will be Monday-Saturday 5:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.
