Here is a great place for a quick burger or chicken sandwich. LOVE their fries! This is a simple, no frills place! Friendly service every time!

This was once part of an attempt to franchise the Lima, Ohio chain. It is now run by separate owners but retains the name. The hamburgers use the same style and labeling....their secret is a bit of sugar in the meat before it is cooked. Hamburgers are good, fries fresh cut.....a decent hamburger joint.

If you're craving a burger, fry, and a shake, this is the place. Service is usually pretty . It's also the place where Lansing political types eat lunch.

Fries are great. Decor and food not the freshest. Interior dated. Wouldn't be a place I would have to go when back in town.

My all time go to for an olive burger. My son came home from Washington for a visit and we both headed to Kewpie for there famous olive burger. It was greasy, and we both tasted it for the remainder of the evening, so disappointed.

This is a hidden gem in downtown Lansing. Unique decor, great hamburgers and turkey burgers. The prices are fair, the service is good, and the olive burger is a taste treat. Easily a top five burger in my estimation.
