Triple XXX Date

Once Ryan finished his semester we took his mom's advice and went on a date - a rare and unusual occurrence indeed. We planned to go to a movie, but the theatre looked more run-down than a Provo dollar theatre, so we decided to pass on that option. Instead we went to Triple XXX. Despite it's odd name, it's just a harmless burger joint. The name comes from the Triple XXX root beer they serve. It is one of only two remaining Triple XXX root beer restaurants in the nation and has been featured on The Food Network. We had a great time - the root beer is superb, I enjoyed looking at some of their old pictures showing views of the area from the restaurant (which has been around since 1929), and they have a unique burger that is served with peanut butter on it. Yes, peanut butter. Ryan was the one to brave it, and he says it's delicious and he can't figure out why no one else has thought to do it. We'll be more than happy to have any family or friends who want to try it come and visit!

My husband would so want to try the peanut butter on a burger. On our first date, we got shakes at the Iceberg in SLC, and he got peanut butter. I tasted it, and it was so good!
