Great, traditional diner-style burgers!

Great burgers, fries, Malted Milks/Shakes and Root Beer in a traditional diner-like restaurant in downtown Racine, Wisconsin. Original franchise from Indiana. A City favorite with excellent service as well.

I've been going to Kewpee for years and have always received great quality food with friendly, welcoming service. My most recent visit did not render an exception. Our waitress was very patient and attentive. The hamburgers, fries, and homemade root beer were all delicious! Best of all, our five-person meal cost only $21.02! Kewpee is definitely one of our favorite... More

Turn back the time to go back to your favorite malt shop. The burgers are so good cooked in front of you. Enjoy your burger with their homemade rootbeer. Great place to take your kids.

Generous portions and good food. Friendly and attentive wait staff. Burgers are big and juicy. I recommend a frosty mug of root beer to wash it all down.

Keep has been a Racine Wisconsin fixture for longer than I've been around. It was relocated years back by the city during redevelopment to the current new(er) building. It is a lunch counter dine in or take out; you'll get to watch the cook grill tons of burgers, drop fries and pour root beers over and over, from a few... More

The "KEWPEE BURGER" has been my favorite hamburger for as long as I can remember. Since I was a young teenager we would go downtown and ALWAYS put our money together and get a burger and root beer float, sometimes french fries. The current location was built new just for and by the Family for it's business, but the first... More

This is a one-of-a-kind sandwich and burger shop, with the ambiance of the 60s, Route 66 diner. The burgers are small and good, we were not overwhelmed with quantities, and the prices are adequate. Loved it for being special.

A wonderful little burger joint in downtown Racine. This place has great food and friendly service. A simplistic menu so you always know what to get.

With a giant collection of kitschy Kewpee Dolls, this Racine landmark also boasts amazing food at a fair price! Friendly wait staff and skilled grill chefs provide a variety of diner favorites! Burgers are served "with a pickle on top" and a smile! Delicious diner food; if you stop in at peak time, prepare for a short wait...everyone else has... More

Love to visit Kewpee's when I come back home to get a burger and root beer and re-live great memories of growing up visiting this great Racine tradition.
