I've been going to this restaurant for my whole life and I consider it a landmark for Racine. The decorating is filled with Kewpee dolls and sports an old fashioned counter with stools and a few tables. Nothing fancy, basic stuff that is clean. Always very busy at peak meal times, you usually have to wait for your food. It... More

I have been dining at Kewpee's since I was a young girl and it still the same as I can remember. The prices are decent as well. I love their burgers, they are great!

If you are ever in Racine, WI - the City on the Lake, make it a point to have lunch/dinner at Kewpee's. A classic throwback Hamburger place..Has been around forever, the best!

Many decades ago, Kewpee's was "the place" for burgers in Racine. It still is! our visit, after a 35 year gap, brought back all those wonderful memories of high school get-togethers and stops at Kewpee's for burgers and root beer. Only thing that's changed -- they now bring your order to your table. And it has been modernized.

My mom has brought my brother and I here when she did not feel like cooking and I love the inside. It's very old school. The root beer floats are amazing, the fries are amazing, the burgers are a little enhh (due to the fact I don't like grease) which is overall okay. The problem is the cashiers. What happened... More

Grab a table or a swivel chair at one of the 2 counters; they have booths for up to 4 or tables for up to 6. The menu is above the grill - breakfast items were listed but I didn't pay a lot of attention to those. Lunch options included burger, cheeseburger, double-cheese burger - fries - chili - soup...

If you love the old fashioned burger joints with great burgers and service this is the place for you. It's a fun place to eat and the service is great even when they are busy. Love the food.

Always busy at lunch. Super burgers and root beer or malt. If you're in downtown Racine and want a casual bite to eat, I'd recommend it.

If you want a delicious burger and homemade rootbeer - look no further. I've been coming here since I was a kid and now that I live in Texas, it is a must on my to-do list when I go back home for a visit. The prices are great, the service is fast and the food is always hot and... More
