A classic American diner, which serves tasty burgers and delicious root beer. Friendly waitresses complete a visit back to the 50's.

I enjoy this place for its kitschy doll, old school diner atmosphere, cheap prices, and tasty burgers. But my favorite is coming in for breakfast. Modify your breakfast eggs to a delicious (and welcome the grease) sandwich with coffee. A must visit location, considering there...More

If you want a good old fashion cheeseburger, fries and frosted root beer look no further this is the place to go. Malts are very good but the best thing besides the food are the people who work there.

My dad worked here in 1944 when he was 14 years old. The last time we visited was 1978. It was great to reconnect! The homemade root beer is awesome!

Like an eating museum. Quick and tasty. Short stools at counter still fine for a tall guy like me. Take a few minutes to look at displays.

Simple, straight forward, and tasty. It's burger's and fries, add a shake for the full experience. Not a big fan of their other items.

Yummy diner food!!! Simple, filling, fun!!! My kids and I love to eat here. Just be careful . . . cash only and the counters are sometimes sticky from all the soda they serve

Though it is still good not as good as years back when they could use the old fashioned grease. Greasy Kewpees is gone. Food still good but not like we enjoyed many years ago.
