The Circus Drive-In is a fast food hamburger drive-in restaurant located in Wall Township, New Jersey, that opened in 1954. Cars originally pulled up and parked around the round building, which remains today as an open-air indoor seating area. There is also a partially covered drive-in isle where cars still pull up to experience classic drive-in service.[1]

Besides standard hamburger fare the Circus is known for its batter-dipped onion rings, fried Maryland softshell crab, and a recent[when?] addition of New England Lobster roll.[2]

The restaurant was featured in a sixth-season episode of The Secret Life Of... on the Food Network.[3]
