Good enough. It's a logical choice when you just want a slice. Never had a problem. Late night pizza for me.

Stopped in for a quick lunch. Only 3 choices of pizza, Hawaiian, meat lovers and cheese. No pepperoni available. The man could hardly be bothered to help us. Acted too busy to pay attention, although there was only 1 other person in the entire restaurant,...More

This place does a good job of giving us the basics in life: wings and pizza with soft drinks on the side. My favorite wings: lemon pepper.

This is the original Fuel location inside of an old service station. The pizza here is good and Dairy Queen is right next door so dessert is convenient too!

They have a great variety of pizza by the slice or the whole pizza along with other dishes that are simply delicious.

I love love love Fuel pizza, especially the Midwood area. The pizza is great, large slices and crunchy crust-New York style! Nice large slices that are great for folding, with a little grease dripping...just like a New York slice from Manhattan.

I'm a sucker for New York Style pizza, that greasy thin stuff with just an inch of crust. This isn't that, so if you're like me, maybe try somewhere else.

This is pretty good pizza - this is not the phenomenal pie that many Charlotte natives think it is. The place on central avenue is quaint, it is a fun place to stop for lunch to grab a fresh slice, You will walk away feeling...More
