Enjoy fresh ingredients and family-friendly dining.
We started AJ’s Burgers, Beef, & Beer in 2008 so families and Purdue students could easily get quality food like our made-to-order burgers, sandwiches, fries, and Chicago-style beef.
Why eat at AJ's?
We (Adam and Jake) came from Chicago to Purdue University for school—but we didn’t feel quite at home. We were missing the food we grew up on, and we were just as tired of fast food as you are. So we decided to open our own restaurant and bring Chicago-style hot dogs, gyros, and Italian beef to Greater Lafayette.
Later, we added burgers, chicken sandwiches, loaded fries, and more. We opened our latest restaurant on Vine Street in 2019, with a casual Chicago-style atmosphere, USB charging outlets at every table, and 12 TVs for watching all the big games. Better yet, we now have a draft system that pours refreshing pints for all our beer lovers.
Whether you’re a busy parent, hungry college student, or an out-of-town visitor, we prepare made-to-order food you’ll love. You can dine in at our restaurant, order online, get carryout, or have your meal delivered every day of the week.
And if you live within our delivery area, we’ll bring your food to you almost any time of day or night! (Well, between 11:00am and 3:00am, that is. We have to sleep sometime, too!)
Although Chicago will always be our home, we love our college town! We partner with local groups and nonprofits for events and fundraisers to give back as much as we can.
AJ’s has been the Purdue Exponent’s “Best Late Night” and “Best Delivery” winner, so we strive to live up to your expectations and serve you the best meal possible every time. That’s why our ingredients are always fresh, our burgers are never frozen, and our delivery is fast—even after midnight!
"I'd choose AJ's over Five Guys any day. Whatever burger you end up choosing, it will always be meaty and hearty with quality toppings. You can definitely taste that their patties are freshly made and never frozen. I love the huge selection of unique add-ons and sauces to cater to everyone's burger needs."
"Best burgers in the state of Indiana, hands down, and a great selection of Chicago dogs and other staples. The staff is always friendly and welcoming. AJ's will deliver just about any place and has long hours for those late-night cravings. I can't recommend [them] highly enough."
