This is a fun place. I've been stopping here since the 60's. Great food and fantastic root beer. You have to try the root beer floats! Very friendly staff!

Not only does this place have terrific, freshly made sliders that remind you of the "Good Ole Days", their fries are some of the best I've had. Their homemade Root Beer is rich and creamy the way root beer is suppose to be, It's the best root beer in Racine. They even have a collection of Kewpee dolls and other... More

Great freshly made hamburgers, great milkshakes and root beer. Not a big or fancy place but well worth the wait if crowded. A Racine favorite!

I love going to Kewpee's in Racine, I always get the cheeseburger, fries and milkshake and I feel like I was a kid again. Not the world's best burger nor the best fries but they are affordable, quick and homemade. The decor is perfect diner decor and the waitstaff and cooks are the type I remember from my youth....a bit... More

I took my boyfriend here as he visited Racine. He loved it. He thought that the service was efficient, as for burgers he liked them. The interior was very interesting for him.

Knowing I had work in the Racine, WI area (60 miles from home), I Googled "best burger" places in that area. Kewpee came out at or near the top of most recommended list. The burger wasn't anything special, and the wait staff was certainly indifferent to any encouragement to return. I also tried their chili and came away with the... More

Old diner atmospher but very clean. Also, a nice, simple menu and cheap. Burgers arent bad, and they have in house root beer thats pretty tasty in a root beer float. I'd go back for sure.
