I agree with Tacohead about the pizza places in racine - I was weaned on Wells Brothers pizza (cheese, sausage & mushroom), but have to admit I never really understood the mystique of Totero's I do love the ambiance, the divery fake-brick exterior and coziness, but I think their "famous" lasagna is listless and the sauce is too sweet. I should try it again, though -- it's been a while.
Growing up in Racine and now a 13-year resident of Milwaukee, here's a few other recommendations:
-Kewpee Lunch, as mentioned before.
-The Yardarm Bar & Grill - don't miss their fish fry & sand dollar potatoes. Here's their website: http://www.foodspot.com/yardarm/
-BBQ Time (1215 DeKoven Ave.) has great tips.
-J & W Drive-In - an old A & W, with excellent hand-pressed cheap burgers & crinkle fries.
-The Hob-Nob (on Sheridan Rd. almost to Kenosha) fancy place lost in the Jackie Kennedy-era of decorating. White leather bar chairs, big steaks and a perfect neon sign bring anniversary-celebrators in droves.
-Albanese's on E. Keefe - but only for the homemade egg pasta with marinara & meatballs and the jars of house wine. The ravioli seem pre-made.
-Speed Queen BBQ (I think it's on this site somewhere...)
-Bombay Sweets - vegetarian & very inexpensive Indian & Pakistani food served on paper plates. Also dozens of tasty pasrties and snack mixes in front deli case. VERY casual. 3401 S. 13th St.
Many others. Will think of more tomorrow. So hungry now.
