    The burger at Marz is flawless. Slagel Family Farms short rib burger, American cheese, spicy mayo & pickles on a fresh-baked furikake milkbread bun.

    The nori fries that come with it are also top notch.

    One double with everything...

    My taste for hamburgers is more modest but is located a bit far away to get satisfied often.
    So, when I have a sudden crave, about once a year, I drive 60 miles due North to Racine, WI to have lunch at the Kewpee. This amazing diner with its elliptical counter, very small round seats, and an impressive collection of Kewpee dolls, serves the same kind of burgers since 1926. And for me these very freshly ground thin grilled patties, and perfectly fried curly fries, have a very nostalgic resonance. They were the first American hamburger I ever had in my life when we came from Paris to visit my wife's family during the hot summer of 1968.
    It is there that I learned to pronounce the ritual sentence "One double with everything"when ordering a hamburger. In those days I did not speak English so I had to rehearse that sentence several times before I sat at the Kewpee's counter for the first time.
    Many years later, I had a very interesting exchange of posts on LTH with René G on the subject of the Kewpee on January 21 2010.

    In full agreement. It is on my "tour" once per year also. That being the case, I get two double CB's and a mug of root beer. Great stop and continued enjoyment.

    http://www.kewpee.com displays a large "WEBSITE SUSPENDED" banner. Could be a virus, etc
    https://www.facebook.com/Kewpee-Lunch-226801137258/ hasn't been updated since 2019 but has some good history of the restaurant.
