I swung in here for a quick lunch before I had to get back to the convention center (right across the street). The pizza was good but I was most impressed with the variety of slice options offered at lunch!

I went there a couple of times as it is close to the Charlotte Convention Center. The service was fast and the pizza and Stromboli's were good. I really liked their cinnamon knots. Plenty of seating, even before the Panthers football game.

The food at Fuel Pizza Café is very good and reasonably priced. The location was right across the street from my hotel and after driving all the way from NJ was a welcome sight, the food is tasty.

Fuel Pizza is one of our favorite stops on the way to a Panthers game. The pizza is always good and service is fast. The slices are oversize and one slice is enough for most people. The full size pizzas are enormous. Sometimes they are a bit crowded but the line moves pretty fast. Good place for a quick meal.

Had a dinner here and was pleasantly surprised. It was served hot, quite tasty, and the staff was very eager to please. Bargain prices for some very good food.

We went here on Thursday night and couldn't eat because they close at 10pm. On Friday night after the game we tried to go again but they were closing when we got there at 11pm.
