The hit FOX television show “Glee” is set in Lima, Ohio, where Kewpee Hamburgers is a legend. Although the burger joint hasn’t appeared in the show, it’s exactly the kind of spot teenagers like Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) and Finn Hudson (Cory Monteith) would hang out.

Named for the cupid-like dolls that were popular in the early 1900s, Kewpee Hamburgers is a downtown Lima diner that seats just 50 people. The site’s trademarked square burgers are said to have been the inspiration for Dave Thomas’ Wendy’s creation.
