Anyone remember Triple Triangle? You were supposed to order by "triangle colors" (red, blue, yellow) which was an early attempt at a "combo" orders. Each "triangle" was about 69 cents, which include a burger, friends, and soft drink.

I worked at the Dixie Highway Triple Triangle when I was in high school in the late 1960's. Really wished I had taken some pics, or saved one of those goofy paper hats!

My older brother and I worked at the Wilson Avenue location of Triple Triangle Systems, Inc. The owner was a "slave driver." We got 2 short breaks and a short lunch break. We got an employee discount for our lunch. We wore goofy paper caps that folded flat. The owner was real particular about the caps; he wanted them to be very clean.

I worked @ Triple Triangle on Wilson Ave & 28th St. in the late 60s while attending Parkland Junior High School. The owners last name was Collier and he spent most of time at that location. I believe there were 7 locations at one time. Too much competition from McDonalds was the death of Triple Triangle.

Triple Triangle. I remember the name.I grew up in St Matthews. Were there any in east end? Highlands maybe? Or maybe near fairgrounds? I know I went there but don't remember where. Maybe Hikes Point?

To answer the question from Ronnie, the Dixie site was at Dixie and Nelson Avenue across from the Ranch House. There's now a Dollar General Store on the block where the Triple T and Harley's Service Station was in the 60's and 70's. I worked at TT for awhile. I still have some little plastic whistles with their logo they gave away. They were the first place I know of to have combo meals. The red triangle was a burger, fry and drink. Yellow was a cheeseburger, fry and drink and the white was a fish sandwich fry etc. I was recently told there was a TT on Bardstown and Watterson trail, next to the Collier Court Motel, which coincidently was the last name of the owner of the Triple Triangles. That's why I started researching it. I'm glad I found this place.

Tried to upload a picture of a couple of those whistles but I got a message the file was too large. Tried different formats of lesser size but nothing worked. Sorry.

Hi this might be related to Triple Triangle but I'm not sure. I was reading Muhammad Ali's auto biography and he has this story about how he threw his Olympic Gold Medal off the Clark Memorial Bridge. In this book he says he was denied service at a hamburger joint somewhere near that bridge that was only "a block away" from Louisville General Hospital. Does anyone have any idea what this place could be?

There weren't any Triple Triangle Restaurants anywhere near General Hospital. The only place I can think of around that time period would be White Castle at 1st and Market Streets.

Did the burgers have ketchup and mustard? My sister and I have a bet. She says there was no mustard. I say had both!

I thought the death of Triple Triangle was charging $0.25 for a hamburger at a time when McDonald's was just (about) $0.18.

These were mostly independents. There's still a Triangle Hamburger place (op. 1953) in Fresno, Cal. Triple Triangles were mainly Ohio Valley, now defunct. The net provides little on these, so far as history.

Jeannie. You win. The burgers came with minced onions, pickles, ketchup and mustard, unless you ordered them otherwise. On another note, the owner's son who managed some of the TTs passed away earlier this year.
