Went in for a quick, tasty lunch. For under $20 I fed me and two teenagers and the food was good. Will go back for sure.

This restaurant has a long history in Racine and was the "go to" spot in Downtown Racine, especially for younger people.

Hamburgers and homemade root beer are very good at Kewpees. It is a fun place to take the kids with pint size stools for them. A must visit for lunch while in Racine.

I have to say this has to be one of the best burger joints in town, they also have great milk shakes. I would recommend stopping by to try at least two burgers and a shake.

Historic place with made-to-order burgers, large portions of fries and great root beer. Yum! Located in downtown Racine, a friend told me they are the best fast food burgers around. I agree!

This place is a small diner, very old-fashioned, with a limited menu, but very tasty food! The burger tasted homemade and the chocolate malt was delicious. The fries were hot and fresh.
