Good pizza, bad A/C system !

Its been a while since Ive had their pizza, but remember liking it last time I was in Charlotte. Pizza is still pretty good. Ive had better, but it is decent. The AC was really not working when we were there, so it was super hot inside.

The food was OK but the place was hotter than the outside. Several members of our group could not finish their meal and had to go outside and cool off.

I wanted a quick bite to eat and found a good deal at Fuel Pizza. It was fast and delicious and exactly what I wanted, to get in and out quickly. I ordered a plain cheese slice and a slice with pepperoni and sausage and it wasn't the best pizza I've ever had, but it was really good and hit... More

Stopped in here for a dinner while on a business trip. Incredible pizza, and took only ten minutes to get it. Restaurant was hot, but bearable. Staff very nice and helpful. Liked it so much, I went back the next night!

We had lunch at the Fuel by the Conference Center... Good, quick and reasonably priced pizza by the slice. The crust was thin and crispy... just the way I like it!

Decided to grab a quick bite in between lunch and dinner. Upon walking up to the counter, you give your order and are told to go to the register to pay. Upon doing so, the cashier asks you again what you want, and then proceeds to put your order in (why they even have the first station is a mystery... More

When people move to Charlotte from large cities like NYC and Chicago they automatically begin the search for the best pizza in town. When I moved here almost 10yrs ago Fuel was the only place we could find that offered good pizza! Others have popped since then but Fuel is like going back to see an old friend and whenever... More

The restaurant was very clean and the staff was friendly. We ordered 3 different kinds of pizza and all were delicious. Their take on Hawaiian pizza (with jalapeños) was AMAZING! Reasonable prices, good food and super fun, vintage gas pumps made it a nice place for a casual dinner in downtown Charlotte.
