I ordered takeout here for lunch while staying across the street at the Westin. It was raining and this was right across the street, so I figured I would give them a try. Service: Amazing! The woman at the counter was so sweet and treated me well. She told me how long I would have to wait and then brought... More

Ordered two strombolis, and a pizza, late at night. Slightly overpriced, for the portions received. Incomplete order arrived but delivery person apologized, and QUICKLY went and brought back rest of order. The food didn't look appetizing, to be truthful, but it TASTED great! We wouldn't recommend it for delivery, but for dine-in, it is probably very cool.

Stopped in for a quick slice for a snack to tide us over for dinner. The decor went well for the theme, old time filling station memorabilia. We arrived around 3pm so it wasn't very busy. The restrooms were well stocked and pretty clean, smelled ok...the trash was overflowing with paper towels. To be noted it was a shared public... More

Staying nearby. Event at convention center. Extremely convenient. The pizza was good. Cheese fries mediocre. Cookies delicious. Bottled beer selection good. Great casual atmosphere.

While I've never had a bad slice of pizza here, I prefer ordering a whole pizza most. It's beyond good. And the marinara sauce for the garlic rolls are so good my kids want to drink it.

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!
