CBS58 Racine and Me
Our restaurant has been family owned and operated for 102 years and 4 generations. In 1921 James and Dominic Wells opened Wells Brothers Restaurant on the corner of 22nd and Mead St. in Racine/Mount Pleasant. James operated the restaurant until his death in 1944, and then sons Tony and Guy took over the restaurant until 1999. Continuing in the tradition of a family-owned restaurant, Guy's daughter, Paula Huck, and nephew, Bill Rivers, took over the business and ran it together until 2016.

MOUNT PLEASANT - In 1921, Warren Harding was the president, the Yankees made their first appearance in the World Series, and a loaf of bread cost less than 10 cents. It's also when Wells Brothers Restaurant in Mount Pleasant opened its doors, and it has been slinging slices ever since. The restaurant has been family-owned and serving the community for 100 years at the same address it started, 2148 Mead St. in Mount Pleasant.

Admittedly, I have not spent much time in Racine over the years. But I have heard about Wells Brothers Italian Restaurant from people who worked in the area and a couple Midwest food accounts on Instagram. Not to mention, it's been listed on some "best pizza" lists and has been open since 1921, making it a notable southeastern Wisconsin establishment. So, I decided to take an afternoon to check out the pizza at 2148 Mead Street after popping into the nearby Racine Art Museum for an exhibit I've been meaning to see.
