Lots of choices, great thin crust pizza and awesome garlic knots! Wine offerings also were pretty decent!

We had gone to a Panthers game and just needed some fuel! Pizza was good but very cheap paper plates. Beer was cheap,but good. It really is just a pizza and wings joint for very fast food.

Don't deliver to hotels! Really!!! Why be on a travel site and not deliver to travelers. Too funny. Don't think the person I talked to really cared about getting and business. Stayed on hold for 10 minutes to be told they don't deliver to hotels. What a waste of time!

We ate at Fuel Pizza the first day that we were in town. The pizza was fine and the atmosphere was pleasant. The location was great. There was not really anything oustanding in my mind, but if you are craving pizza and are in the area, give them a try.

Went here for pizza and wings. Great on both counts. Living in Jersey comes with high expectations for pizza and they nailed it. Super friendly staff. Highly recommend for late night dining!

This a great spot for late night dining. Not to far from the stadium and the Epicentre. The garlic knots are fantastic. Get a large pie and get it to go!

We've been to several Fuel Pizza cafes around Charlotte over the years and have always been pleased. It's been a while since our last visit, and we were happy to see that the food and unique atmosphere have not changed. It sort of reminds you of a place that a biker might eat at---but it is family friendly and worth... More

Visited with local family as we were out and about in Charlotte. I got a Cobb salad which they said there was no egg available due to Avian flu. The salad was pre-made in a plastic container. The lettuce was wilted, the carrot was dry and the tomatoes were rotten. My family had pizza and said it was average. I... More

I've honestly kind of written of Fuel as a tired pizza place with no real enthusiasm for food, as I've visited other locations in Charlotte, and I haven't been impressed, but this location I thought was particularly good. The pizza was good, and the Wings are cooked fresh. In fact, I think of myself as a bit of a wing... More

My wife and I went to the South Carolina vs North Carolina football game and came up on Fuel Pizza on the way to Panther stadium. I'm a California Ultimate Pizza fan; but this pizza is right up there. We got our moneys worth and satisfaction worth with this pizza-plenty of ingredients. We also had wings and they were some...
