It doesn't get any better then this!

Great burger, fries, and malts! All this at a reasonable price and excellent service. This restaurant has been in the same family for years.

A Racine tradition. I live in Racine now, but spent 20+ years in the Navy. Anytime my family and I returned to visit family KEWPEES was a mandatory lunch. Rated the best hamburgers in Racine for many years. Their collection of KEWPEE dolls is something to see. WHEN IN RACINE DON'T MISS KEWPEES. Service was better than average for this... More

This is a great place for a quick lunch. They also serve breakfast and dinner. It's as though you've gone back in time. If you've ever experienced a 60s diner, you'll feel at home here. The prices are extremely reasonable and the service is great!!! If you love root beer,you'll love their home made brew!

This place was busy today. Took a while for a waitress to approach our table. Food is very reasonably priced. The root beer is so great! We loved it, the kids loved it, what more can you say.

The Kewpee Sandwich Shop is one of the most fun places to eat in Racine. The food is delicious and the service is great. If you sit at the counter, you can watch your food be prepared. The cheeseburgers are unbelievable, the fries are huge, the root beer is cold and the chocolate malts are great! I would recommend going... More

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!
