In 1921, James and Dominic Wells opened Wells Brothers Restaurant on the corner of 22nd and Mead in Racine, Wisconsin. James operated the restaurant until his death in 1944, then sons Tony and Guy took over until 1999. During that period, the restaurant enjoyed many good times but also weathered some hardships. In 1967, two fires completely destroyed the inside of the restaurant. The brothers rebuilt it to its present appearance. Continuing the tradition of a family owned restaurant, third generation Wells — cousins Bill Rivers and Paula Wells-Huck — now operate the business.
Since 1921, Wells Brothers has been preparing Italian dishes utilizing the same recipes passed down through the generations — all using fresh, high quality ingredients. We have been blessed with numerous awards throughout the years including The Top Pizza in Racine — 1980s, The Top Independent Business in the USA — 1990s, and in 2005, Wells Bros. pizza was voted #6 in the nation! We strive to make your every visit to Wells Brothers a pleasurable and memorable experience. Enjoy your time here with us.
