Famous for inventing regional condiment fry sauce,[2] the company also claims to be the burger chain to invent and first to sell the kids' meal.

The restaurants sell the standard burgers, sandwiches, and shakes, salads and fries, plus less common dishes like halibut and fries, and specialty soft drinks like fresh lime squeezes, fresh (non-alcoholic) lime rickeys, and soft drink freezes.

Arctic Circle once offered franchises in California - but no longer does business in the Golden State.
