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.

This quaint sandwich shop is located in downtown Racine. Sometimes, parking is an issue, although they do have some parking next to the building. I usually order their Kewpee burger, which is cooked fresh after you order it. Ordering it specially made is not a problem, as they make your burger after you order it. You get an abundance of...

Very quirky place to visit, but a must do when visiting Racine. Kewpee dolls everywhere and of all possible types make for an interesting decor choice. Turns out the fun is quite good and very inexpensive, so if you want a good tasting burger at a low price while being in a one of a kind type place, this is... More

I've been going to Kewpee's for more than 40 years! It was always a treat to go downtown with my mom, visit the bookstores, then stop by Kewpee's for one of Racine's best cheeseburgers! No longer in the "creepy", dark parking garage, Kewpee's is stil in the same location, but much brighter and cheerier. Same 50s retro diner feel, with... More

This is a great place to step back in time. Counters with short stools, strike up a conversation with your neighbor. Short, to the point menu, you come here for the diner/malt shop experience of the 50's and 60's. Great if you are in search of hang-over food! But family friendly as well.
