Kewpee raves about locally raised cattle. Upon further inspection, I believe they're talking about their customers. Herd mentality describes how people are influenced by their peers to adopt certain behaviors, follow trends, and/or purchase items. Three Ways to Describe Kewpee: 1) Overpriced 2) Average/Poor Taste 3) Little Value The success of Kewpee relies on the nostalgia of a dead era.... More

I am not from Lima, but I have family there. When I first visited, they took me there. The burgers and fries are good, better than other fast food chains. The malt though is what keeps me coming back. I have even bought extras and put them in a cooler to take home and freeze. Kewpee may not be a... More

I have taken my out of town clients here and they thought it was gross. If you're not from Lima, you probably won't like the food at this restaurant. The prices seem to get higher and the quality of food seems to get worse. I have taken my kids here when we visit Lima and they think it is horrible.... More

All foods at the Kewpee are fresh and delicious! Their coffee is great and the fresh pies are terrific. Their Hamburghers are fresh cooked and always very good.

Kewpee Hamburgers is/was the prototype for Wendys. This restaurant has been in business for nearly 100 years. In fact the Lima Downtown location is the original store. The menu is limited: hamburger with all sorts of toppings, including olives; french fries; (ice cream) malts; wonderful pies; beverages. During Lent/Easter fish sandwich is available and I believe a simple bread and... More
