Burger tourists, take note!

Thrillist writer Matt Lynch has compiled a list of the 31 “Best Burger Places” in America. Rounding out the list is West Lafayette’s own Triple XXX. Lynch’s write-up:

Triple XXX is as much of a Purdue tradition as breakfast club at Harry’s Chocolate Shop and/or making fun of Tom Crean. Indiana’s oldest-drive in, surprisingly family-friendly Triple XXX has a robust lineup of burgers made from house-ground sirloin (they call them chop steak for a reason), many of them named for Boilermaker greats. The peanut butter-laden Duane Purvis All-American is definitely a favorite, while the Bernie Flowers employs the tangy zip of Miracle Whip. But the undeniable griddled beefiness of the patty is the common denominator they all share. Wash it down with some of their house-recipe root beer and Boiler Up. — ML

We whole-heartedly endorse the list and Triple XXX’s inclusion on it, though we would have moved it a little closer to the top of the list. Maybe Lynch doesn’t like peanut butter on his burgers.
