I was born and raised in Lima, OH. Hadn't been back in 43 years. Had to have my husband try a Kewpie and it was just a delicious as I remember. Thick chocolate malts still serve in glass (only downtown square Kewpie) The burger still the same and reminds me of a Wendy's burger before Dave Thomas opened Wendys, he... More

It's the best burger ever!!!!! No one makes it like the Kewpee. It is unique.The chili & malt are on the list as well. Get off Rt.75 onto #117 . It's so worth the stop.

We stopped in here on the way home from vacation, saw that it was a simple little burger fast food joint. Looked into it and saw that it had connections with Halo Burger, which is a Flint Michigan institution. Simple fast food with few options, but done right! Fresh ingredients and low prices. Cool old fashioned place, a piece of... More

This is a simple hamburger joint, but the burgers were awesome!! Limited choices. But overall a good experience. Although the bathroom facilities could use a much needed upgrade.

We made sure we got to Lima in time to visit the Kewpee before it closed at night. I had a fish sandwich and my husband had a double cheeseburger, fires, and a malt. We were back the next day for lunch. If we hadn't be going to a party after lunch, I would have had their peach pie or... More

On the way back from Lima we stopped and got burgers and fries. Always good and fresh. The fried are tasty. The chili has been good on other visits. Great value the service is usually friendly. I'm sure we'll be back as it's easy to get to, quick and inexpensive.

Kewpee has the best hamburgers in this region. They are made fresh every day and they are delicious. The chili is really good and so is the pie. An all around great eating experience and when I am in Lima, I eat there when I want a good hamburger

The food here is decent, and the atmosphere is simple 50s nostalgia. The burgers are hand ground, they are very proud of that. The fries are okay at best. The pie is decent. Good food, better than the national burger chains, but its no Whatta Burger, Smash Burger, or even Five Guys.

Thank Jeff S
