TripleXXX: A Lafayette Favorite For Nine Decades

Not to be missed next time you’re in Lafayette is a stop at Triple XXX Family Restaurant. Opening in 1929, Triple XXX was the state’s first as well as its oldest drive-in.

Their root beer dates back even further to 1895 when the Galveston Brewing Company first started making beer and then later added soft drinks to the list of products.

The popularity of their root beer led to an expansion of Triple XXX root beer stands in the U.S.  but with the acquisition and merging of brands in the U.S. to the point that only three major brands – Coca Cola, Pepsi and Dr. Pepper/Seven-Up control the market, Triple XXX is difficult to find. But well worth the search.

Besides the great root beer, the family owned restaurant grinds their own sirloin daily for all their burgers including The Duane Purvis All-American, a 1/4 pounder topped with melted cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickle, Spanish onion and peanut butter (yes, peanut butter).
