WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — It has been a West Lafayette landmark since 1929.
The Triple XXX Family Restaurant is one of Indiana's top 20 places to dine in 2020.
The list was put out by Visit Indiana. It's designed to celebrate the best of what the Hoosier state has to offer.
The 20 eateries on the list are considered true destination dining experiences. Triple XXX co-owner Carrie Ehresman said not much has changed in the restaurant in the last 90 years.
She said that's what keeps people coming back.
"We always hear that when people come back, 'It's just like it was when we were dating in high school. It was a part of my Purdue experience,'" Ehresman explained. "So for us, it's being able to have the memory that feels exactly the same way it did for someone in the 30's, 40's, 50's and 60's."
Co-owner Greg Ehresman said it's the tradition that makes it such a special place for many.
"We encourage people to just come in, create your own memories and make this the place that you like to stop and meet when you're coming through and coming to Lafayette, West Lafayette and Purdue," he said.
Ehresman has a heads up for Triple XXX customers. The restaurant will be closed from Jan. 27 to 31 for maintenance.
The Beef House in Covington also made the list.
