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.

During a recent visit to Charlotte to attend the NCAA Basketball Tournament being held there we took advantage of time in between sessions to look for something quick and tasty....and that served ice cold beer. We happened upon the Fuel Pizza eatery and enjoyed a fine lunch of garlic knots, pizza slices, and yes...they served cold beer! The pizza slices... More

Great place for a slice or two of pizza or a sub sandwich. Nice atmosphere and quick service. It is reasonably priced

Looking for a bite of food my friend and I came upon this place. The interior is neat and has a bunch of vintage signs on the wall. Feels a bit like a garage, in a good way. They have a variety of food options. We went for simple pizza and wings. The pizza is New York style and tasted... More

We were running around uptown Charlotte and stopped in for a quick slice of pizza. It was a very quick stop and the pizza wasn't bad.

Not bad, but not great. A little more expensive than I expected or for what you get. I thought the wings were better than the pizza. We ordered by the slice, and it looked like the pizza had been sitting out awhile. They brought the food to our table piecemeal, so by the time our youngest child received her food,... More

Fuel sells pizza by the slice, or the entire pizza. This is a typical quick pizza place -- you place your order at the counter and they bring it to you. Pizza is good but not exceptional.

I've eaten here several times over the years while attending a convention. The food is consistently good, and a great alternative to the overpriced offerings at the convention center or the nearby hotels. It has the atmosphere of a college pizza joint. Old filling station motif, with gas pumps, grease barrels, and even fan belts and wiper blades on the... More

We were searching for somewhere to eat as we drove into Charlotte for a minor league hockey game. Google Maps pulled this location up when searching for restaurants near the Time Warner Cable Arena. We passed a few dozen places as we wandered from our parking deck. Glad we didn't stop into any of those. Love the pre-set specials you... More
