Good greasy burger

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.

The sandwiches are ok - I've had better, but I've had worse. The fries are about the same. The one great thing about this place is their root beer and the shakes - both are reasonably priced and delicious. The decor is very unique - all kewpee dolls (hence the name). Service can be slow when it gets busy -... More

As a vegetarian I thought perhaps I would not find anything to order here... but there was a toasted cheese sandwich which was ok. What was spectacular was the root beer float. Home made root beer with a big scoop of vanilla icecream on top. Plenty to share. We were there around noon and there was a line. We sat... More

This place would be the gem of Racine if it was located in a different place. Parking is horrible, place is kinda dirty and I believe it's cash only still. All that being said, the burgers are AMAZING. Worth all the hassle to at least try it out.

I'm sure locals will not like this review. Great burgers, just make sure you get them to go. Dirty inside. Sorry as a first time visitor we didn't know the rules of ordering and that it is a "cash only" business. No management/owner involvement or maybe no caring about service and cleanliness. This could be a great city gem and... More

This is a classic burger joint with a retro vibe. You can sit at a "soda counter" while eating your burger and fries. Don't forget to order a shake. Delicious!

Good food and root beer at reasonable prices. Service is quick and friendly. You can eat at the lunch counter at tables or get your food to go.

I make sure to visit Kwepee every time I visit Racine. There's something about that place which makes me want to go back every time. The food is clean and hygienic. You can see the entire kitchen. I always get the Kewpee burger because every time you get that, your server will say "a Kwepee burger always comes wrapped"I love... More

Perhaps the burgers are a bit smaller that in the past but they are still the best. Kewpee's is the best burger in Racine, end of debate!
