I've been going here for years. Fuel always has the best pizza and wings, and it's great for late night eats on weekends. But the reason I'm leaving a review now is because of the service I experience here...especially last night. The staff is always upbeat and happy, all having fun with each other and making the most of having to be at work serving all the party-goers instead of partying themselves. Last night, the line was about 8 deep at about 2:30 AM and two people very blatantly stepped in front of us. The cashier noticed and he asked them if they skipped and they denied it. Then he looked at me and asked if they skipped and I said yes. The skipper just looked me up and down and said "whatever" and continued to try to order. The cashier then said "You just skipped like 8 people. I'm not serving you. You can get to the back of the line." Even though they were slammed and needed to work quickly they still made time to stick up for their customers. They obviously care about their job, establishment, and guests. I've never seen an employee act so quickly and fiercely to a pesky line cutter. Needless to say, we tipped them generously...which we were going to regardless. TIP THESE PEOPLE. They work extremely hard for us and do it with a genuine smile while we're out partying!! Fuel on central will continue to get my business as well as my friends and family's business when we go out. Keep it up!!!!!!

Food is great but this location on central Ave is worst customer service ever. It is truly worse than McDonald or Wendy's. Never go here on a weekend after 1am. There is a girl working kinda younger maybe mid 20s that always answers the phone and works the cash register that is rude beyond return

I have always loved Fuel Pizza. And I'm not saying I moved within a mile of it BECAUSE it's so wonderful, but that's certainly a bonus of my neighborhood. The teriyaki wings and Hawaiian pizza are staples of my diet, to be sure. (Try adding a little cilantro to the Hawaiian; you're welcome.) An absolute must for any Charlottean.

Terrible experience and pizza. They shorted me on half my wing order and gave me stale pizza. I called my order in at 6:15pm and told them I'd like to pick it up at 7:15pm as I knew it'd be a busy night for them. The pizza was cold and wings dry - clearly they made the pizza when I ordered it and did not wait. About $42 for a large pizza and 18 wings (which they gave me 9), awful prices. Ripped me off + bad food + bad prices = fuel pizza

Great Crust and Sauce! I can remember my first experience with Fuel. Someone brought pizza to a rehearsal that was beyond incredible. Flavorful crust that wasn't too chewy, smartly seasoned sauce, and fresh toppings. I had to figure out where it was from...and I've been stopping in for a slice (and those addictive garlic knots!) when I'm around ever since. On my most recent visit to the Central Ave Fuel, the staff was incredibly kind and quick, especially considering it was the tail end of the dinner rush. Turns out I was mistakenly overcharged - I didn't notice. But the girl at the register found me at our table, asked if I'd like a refund or the extra piece I paid for, and threw in a cookie for the confusion! Honesty and great service!

I've ordered from Fuel Pizza more times than I can count, but lately it's just been barely above average. This time in particular my lettuce wasn't crisp at all, as it if had been sitting out for God knows how long. And the delivery guy was SUPER rude, I regret tipping the guy $5. Overall, I'm usually very pleased, but the last year or so it's just been mediocre. Get it together Fuel Pizza.
