Kewpee has been around for years. I love their hamburgers and fries. Every time I go back home to visit I have to stop in. This last visit was nice I took my 23 year old son, he had never been in the restaurant. I use to just bring it home. We had root beer soda, my son stated we... More

Best hamburgers in town, tasty fries, value pricing, but they don't accept credit cards. Old fashioned diner decor with cute Kewpee dolls, friendly/quick service. Located in Downtown Racine, near the Harbor & Reefpoing Marina. Would visit more often if they accepted credit cards.

My husband read about this place somewhere and we drove an hour to check it out one rainy day. Oh yeah, it was worth it! I have so much to say about this place and it only has about 8 things on the menu! Kewpee's was very busy at 12:30 and we sat at a table that had just been... More

If you are looking for old school burgers and homemade root beer, this is the place. When they are open they are always very busy....because the food is simple, quick and very good. If you're on a diet or are vegan, not so much, but traditional burgers, fries, etc. this is the place you've been looking for.

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
