Kewpees is most fascinating for its history. There is a display of the history of the restaurant and Kewpee dolls on the west wall, and it is quite interesting. The food is basic diner food - hamburgers and fries. It is good, solid comfort food, but nothing out of the ordinary. If you have visitors from out of town, bring... More

It's quick and easy and very reasonable. A Racine landmark for as many years as I can remember. People who have left town and come back for a visit usually make this stop mandatory.

This is THE place to grab lunch in Racine. I have been going to Kewpees since high school (45 years). The BEST greasy cheese burgers you will ever have. Watch them being grilled as you sit at the counter and drink your root beer. It used to be even smaller back in the day when it was under the parking... More

Hand made hamburger patties, homemade chili, root beer floats and great fries! A little bit of long ago with the decor to match! Collection of kewpee dolls gives the honest name. Never know who you will see there as many people frequent this great place. Adults,and children!

Racine's nostalgic burger joint has a limited menu but still one of the best burgers around. Crispy fries and terrific root beer. Even if you didn't grow up in Racine, you'll love the food and collection of Kewpie doll memorabilia. Great little place to grab a quick lunch and people watch.

Cheap no frills diner style eatery that specializes in hamburgers served simply in a red plastic basket. Long history in Racine. The chocolate malts are AMAZING!!!! Never had a better one anywhere. People recommend their root beer floats. Gets busy there. Dining is quick. Be warned: you will leave smelling like a hamburger.
