A funky Caribbean-themed restaurant in a former gas station, Fuel has great food, an ultra-laid-back atmosphere, and a fantastic outdoor patio with plenty of shade. The food is fresh and vibrant — think fish tacos, pineapple salsa, and sweet plantain fritters — and so good that Guy Fieri from Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives stopped in to try the tender braised pork tacos and enormous grilled jerk chicken sandwich (and to give chef/owner Justin Broome some guff about his youthful success). The must-order Ho Cakes are crispy corn fritters loaded with onions, garlic, jalapeños, roasted corn and topped with pepper jack, creme fraiche, and tomato chutney. The drinks won’t empty the wallet either, with Fuel Lager available for only two bucks a pour. Oh, and don’t miss the island-style Sunday brunch, with its killer huevos rancheros and mouth-watering Southern fried chicken and waffles. The sprawling back patio is the perfect place to suck down a couple of brews and enjoy the sunshine on a nice day. —Eric Doksa Dish (Winter 2014)
