I eat here all the time, and am never disappointed. Their fries are the best I've ever had. Always freshly made. Their ice cream is amazing, too. And the staff is very nice.

When I first moved to the area, Arctic Circle was a quick place to grab a bite to eat. Now...it's about as far from quick as it can be. Service has really gone downhill, and it shows in the restaurant's environment and the food. I stopped by after work one evening to get a corn dog meal and an extra... More

Decided to try the "new" Gyro sandwich even though I had reservations about ordering a specialty sandwich at a fast food outlet. I should have listened to myself! The pita was not grilled and had a kind of "under done" texture. The tzatziki sauce was tasteless and scant. Also in the sandwich was some raw onion and a few pieces... More

We love Artic, however the meat has changed since the `80`s. It does not taste like all beef. Service is good and love the extra white sauce, no catsup option. The complimentary ice cream cones are definitely a perk.

Average burgers bordering on poor. They do have excellent shakes. Not a place we go very often because the food is just okay.

Given that Wendy's serves ptomaine, macshack boils their burgers now, and Burger king just smells so bad I can't gag their crap down. AC is the only hope for a decent fast food burger. Average at best, but good.

The food here is average and comparable to Dairy Queen. They do have tasty fry sauce, but are kind of skimpy on passing it out. I highly recommend the above the rim shakes - super thick so you have to use a spoon but sooooo much better than a Blizzard.

Great food. Customer service is great. I've never been to a fast food restraunt that comes around to check on you and also brings you a free complentry dipped ice cream cones after your meal. Always a favorite for our family.
