I'm giving this place two stars and the only reason it deserves that much is because it's a quick service and the avocado on my rice bowl was actually ripe. Aside from that the food was subpar. The rice bowls are a tiny portion for $11. I get it has to be under 500 calories but come on, I get... More

After walking around with friends and not finding anything that would be quick before our train ride back to NYC, we found this great spot. Food was delicious, staff super friendly and got our food rather quick. It's also affordable unlike some of the other restaurants in the area. I would definitely stop by next time I'm in Philly.

I've never had a good experience at Fuel. The staff is never responsive and often forgets you're there. The food is average, and I have to assume it's healthy despite not knowing the ingredients. Maybe it's healthy because of the smaller portions.

Had the best Chai and delicious brunch. Menu full of creative options with a large juice bar. If you are looking for something different than check out this place.

I often have business lunches. Most places do not cater to professionals, often rushing to give you the check etc... Well at Fuel this is not the case I brought a client there for lunch to discuss a contract. The waitress was attentive but gave us our space. This is the kind of professionalism that you can expect from Fuel.... More

Their menu is unique offering a variety of toppings served on a different foundation... Delicious chicken, beef or veggie dishes served in a sandwhich, wrap or frittata, plus other great menu items. Friends raved about a savory waffle with guacamole and I loved my Bon mi chicken panini. Everything was prepared to order which made things a bit slow for... More

Visited during conference when needing to grab a relatively quick lunch. We both had sandwich and salad plates. Preparation was great and timely. Portions were ample but not too much. Service was good, and we were in/out in 45 minutes.
