The food was not the best thing I've ever had. It was around 11pm after the game... More

Took the family for lunch during a trip to Discovery Place. My husband loved the old gas station decor and overall ambience. The pizza was good (not a true NY style) and the cinnamon bites were amazing.

I've been to Fuel numerous times and have found them to be pretty consistent. The food doesn't blow me away, but it isn't bad either. Service is quick, and price isn't bad. Its a good place to run out for a quick lunch and get back to the office, or to grab some food after a night of drinking.

The staff were super nice, we'd ordered a gallon of tea and they had to make more and had that all ready to go, again they were super nice even though it was pretty late. They knew we were taking the pizzas back to a conference room and gave... More

Good basic pizza. By the slice. Quick and tasty. Cheap. Easy to get to. Guy behind the counter was a little goofy. Forgot to charge us for the pizza, but charged for the cookie.

Stopped in initially only because the building was nice so I thought I'd try the food. The service was good and the staff was very friendly. I had pizza on their recommendation, it was freshly made. It wasn't anything great about the pizza, it was bad it just piZza. I expected some signature flavor, but nope just pizza. If you... More

We stopped in for a snack to hold us over till our 8 pm dinner reservations at another restaurant. This is the type of place you go in and order a slice and they already have them cooked and displayed and they pull a slice and put it back in the oven to heat up. If you do not like... More
