“Triple XXX is named after a brand of root beer that has been served in West Lafayette since the 1920s, but it’s the burgers that have put this spot on the map. Featured on Food Network's "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives", Guy Fieri was very impressed by this establishment. “That’s a good burger,” he declared of one option featuring two cheese-smothered patties nestled on a toasted bun. Special Dishes: Double Cheeseburger, Triple XXX Root Beer”

Park
“ndiana’s newest state park, Prophetstown is located where the Tippecanoe River meets the Wabash near the town of Battle Ground northeast of Lafayette. The park's landscape has been shaped by ice from glaciers, moving water, fire and human hands that helped maintain the vast tall prairie grass. Native American people hunted and lived along the two rivers for thousands of years. During the summer, pool hours may change because of weather and staffing. Please contact the property office for exact times before your visit. Through our unique partnership with The Farm at Prophetstown, visitors can discover 1920s farm lifestyles, Native American culture and take a stroll through 900 acres of restored prairie. We are restoring native habitats such as wetlands, wet slopes called fens, prairie and open woodlands. Directions Take I-65 to Exit 178/SR 43 north of Lafayette.

Cost: $5 per person, those ages three and younger are free. Rules . History The park is named for a Native American village located between the rivers established by Tecumseh, who was Shawnee, and his brother Tenskwatawa (The Prophet) in 1808. Tecumseh led his band there from Ohio, where pressure from white settlers had forced him to leave. Tecumseh believed the only way to repel the advance of European settlement was to form an alliance with other tribes. He traveled widely persuading tribes to join his coalition. More than 14 tribes set aside centuries-old disputes to stop their common enemy. They met at Prophetstown, and heard The Prophet speak. Tecumseh anticipated their sheer numbers would be enough to stop the westward settlement. William Henry Harrison, governor of the Indiana Territory, was alarmed by the numbers at Prophetstown, and moved 1,200 troops to the site while Tecumseh was south gathering additional support. Wanting to avoid a fight, yet fearing an attack, The Prophet decided to strike first in the early morning hours of Nov. 7, 1811. The battle lasted two hours. As darkness faded, the villagers withdrew through the marsh back to Prophetstown, then fled to Wildcat Creek. Harrison's men burned Prophetstown to the ground.”

“Delicious food and unique menu, very reasonably priced liquor and good drinks. It is pretty loud in the evening, so don't go here if you want to enjoy a quiet dinner. It turns into a bar atmosphere about 8-9pm and the lights get turned down too low a little too early for my liking, but we still eat here regularly because we enjoy the food:) 21 and over only”
