Best Root Beer in down-town Racine to go along with seasoned fries to go along with your cheeseburger or add some ice cream to make a float!!

I ate here almost every weekend back in the 50s when I went to St. Cats HS. Not fancy...just plain good burgers, fries & shakes. It is a local handout. Try it !!

Picked up lunch today for my husband. Double cheeseburgers are they way to go, with a root beer! Always packed, but quick service. Highly recommend.

Expect a line at lunch hour in this fabled Racine eatery. Can't go wrong with a small menu featuring freshly made hamburgers and fries - or hot dog - with a frothy root beer on the side. Have been back time and again when visiting Racine and love the ambiance and the food. Want to try breakfast sometime too. Save... More

This is a nice, very clean spot for a quick, really good burger. Lots to look at and remember the days when Kewpees were around.

Very delicious meal with cheap prices. I went to this quirky diner last summer on my trip to Racine and I was happy to return back to it today. It's a quick, cheap place to eat that actually has good food. Between my boyfriend and I we got two fries, two double cheeseburgers, and a root beer and it came... More

This is a childhood memory and it continues to not disappoint. The burgers are freshly made and they are delicious. The ambience is still the old-fashioned soda fountain venue with the wall of vintage kewpie dolls. You have to have one of these burgers when you are in Racine.
