If you want a burger fries and a root beer the way it used to be served this the place for you. The atmosphere is a throw back to a time of Formica counter tops swivel stools, and quick service.

Whenever we are near downtown Racine we always stop in to eat or carryout for lunch. Over the years the quality and taste has been maintained. Usually we order cheeseburgers, an order of fries and a chocolate malt. Just thinking about makes me want to leave to go right now! Don't forget the root beer.

Original "fast-food" way before the others, great hamburgers, French Fries (extra good when you order them Crispy), Root Beer, Malts. Even though they're busy the service is good, fast and clean and it tastes just like when I was a kid. My husband and I makes special trips downtown just to go to Kewpee's.

I have always enjoyed eating at Kewpee. I have been eating there for more than 60 years and the quality of food and service never change. Always the best. The restaurant is always clean and the help courteous and friendly. The most tasty hamburgers in the city. Prices any family can afford.

Always fresh meat used on a toasted bun. A great value. The place looks just like it did 40 years ago. You can't beat the taste.

I grew up in Racine and any time I was downtown with a little cash to grab a bite I would stop at Kewpees. I would take a seat on one of the stools at the counter and would just marvel at their hamburger frying process. I recently had to go home to Racine and my sister and I just... More

Kewpees is a great place to grab a great burger and root beer. Almost any day of the week it is a scramble to get a seat.

We stopped by here today after reading about it in a book about where to go with kids in WI. We were taken back when they only take cash but were able to get cash from an ATM. It was interesting and entertaining to see the fast paced diner in action. The burgers were good. They kids were really impressed... More

This is a regular hot spot for anyone coming to Racine! Fresh burgers, fast and inexpensive service. Just make sure you bring cash, as they only take cash! Burger, fries, root beer, shakes, and get there early, or you may wait in line. Maybe we should call DDD to do a show!
