Good quick pizza

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!

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!

I had a 3 day conference at the convention center, ate here 3 time, it is fast, high quality and good. Pizza, salad, drinks, cool interior and long hours, how can you go wrong?!

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.

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

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.
