Arctic Circle Restaurants is an American chain of burger and shake restaurants based in Midvale, Utah, United States. There were 71 restaurants in seven states as of September 2022 (in Utah, Idaho, Nevada, Arizona, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming). About half are company owned and the rest are owned by franchisees, about half of the restaurants are in Utah. The restaurants serve typical fast food fare such as burgers, sandwiches, shakes, salads, fries, and fish and chips.[2]

They claim to have invented the regional condiment fry sauce,[3] the company also claims to be the burger chain to invent and first to sell the kids' meal.[4]
