I don't understand why people like this place so much. Other than a nostalgic blast from 1950, I don't get it. Burgers are fine but the chili is one step above lumpy water. No flavor whatever.

Every time we come to Lima Ohio I have to have a Kewpee Cheeseburger. They are the best. They had great fries too. So if you are every in Lima Ohio you have to have a Kewpee burger.

Great cheeseburgers and chili. The flavor is always the same - excellent! Their frosted malts and fries are great. Oh, their fresh pies are yummy also!

Local favorite? I think half of Lima was there. They're not kidding about a packed house. Dining room full and two lines of about 20 people each waiting to order. Drive thru was really full. All moved through quickly. Great burger, reasonably priced. Fun place. Bring reinforcements to hold a table while you're in line.

We are visiting on business from ATL. Someone told us Kewpee's was the inspiration for Dave Thomas starting Wendy's. This place was good & it's apparent it is a local favorite. Packed out!
