The Burger! We have ventured out around Lafayette-West Lafayette, tasted, explored and tried to conquer the mighty burger! Our last stop on this burger exploration is Triple XXX Family Restaurant, home to so many fabulous burgers. Their saying is “Don’t be nervous, try the Purvis,” and we took on this challenge. Here are our feelings about their unique burgers:
Emily truthfully was nervous, but guess what? She tried the Duane Purvis All American Burger! Here are her thoughts, “I am not a huge peanut butter fan and peanut butter on a burger has never sounded very appetizing. After trying it for the first time, I’m disappointed I didn’t try it sooner. I am so glad I ordered it and gave it a try. This burger was delicious and now I know why everyone loves it. It has the perfect amount of peanut butter on it and is jam packed with flavor. I will most definitely be ordering this burger again!”
“The Boilermaker Pete Burger is my favorite,” Ashley proclaims! “I prefer it without the grilled onions so it’s just a basic cheeseburger but it’s the perfect cheese burger. You can actually taste the cheese and the meat. The cheese gets into all the nooks and crannies of the burger and just meld together. The smoothness of the burger and cheese mixed with the toasted sesame seed bun makes for a tantalizing mixture of textures for your taste buds.”
Corey shares, “The Bert Burger at Triple XXX is grilled and sizzled to perfection. Biting into the ¼ pound burger, you get mouthwatering crispy bacon, melted American cheese, a crunch of onion. I add my personal touch by adding spicy ketchup. The Bert Burger, along with a Triple XXX Root Beer of course, will leave any burger enthusiast craving for more.”
I tried the Boudia, (Boe-Dye-Uh), a triple cheese sensation! American, Swiss & Philadelphia cream cheese, 2 slices of bacon, & tomato on a toasty sesame bun. Add in a 1/4lb. chop steak and you have the quintessential burger creation! I have tried many burger combinations at Triple XXX as my family has been visiting this local eatery for years. I have to say this is officially my new favorite burger Triple XXX serves. I love cheese and the 3-cheese combination is stringy, smooth and delicious. The chop steak is juicy and the bacon crisp and flavorful. As a bonus it is served with my favorite side, hash browns and gravy. Their hash browns are the best around. Perfectly cut and cooked! YUM! To those that enjoy eggs, our waitress recommended a fried egg as well to complement this burger.
