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.

A local recommended I try Kewpie's while in Racine. This is a hole in the wall, greasy spoon type establishment. Rare to visit a place where the burger ($1.85) costs less then the fries ($2.00). The Kewpie doll theme is fun, and I can't complain...More

Yum. Faniciest root beer float I've ever seen. It tasted wonderful too! Our first time to Kewpee sandwich shop while visiting town. It's a unique place where they cook on a griddle style cooktop. They close at 6 PM which was interesting to us!
