Hours: Lunch, Dinner (Daily)
I have a standing order at Fuel: ho-cakes, braised pork tacos, and Pain Reliever — keep ‘em coming. On a spring afternoon, when the weather hasn’t hit that hotter than a whore in church level, you can’t do much better than a leisurely lunch on Fuel’s back patio. The former gas station turned Caribbean kitchen has been satisfying for years, and with a killer sweet corn bisque; big, fresh salads; and chips and dip galore (from queso carne to a salsa trio to nachos), we think they have a good long life ahead of them. —Kinsey Gidick (Dish, Winter 2019)
Caribbean-inspired food, cold beer, and a unique indoor/outdoor setup make the tropical back deck a prime spot for sultry nights.
