Fuel is a unique and supremely "Midtown Memphis" destination. Every component of my meal was exceptional. From the perfectly sweetened hibiscus tea, to the grilled potatoes (both sweet and new), to the julienned carrots. I ordered the "vegan TV dinner" -- but substituted grass fed...More

Glad to have this restaurant in my city. The prices are reasonable. The environment is comfortable. The building has a lot of character. The meat they use has been Grass Fed. Lots of healthy delicious options!

Trying to increase our list of good local places, we tried Fuel Cafe and had high expectations. We went twice and it was adequate enough the first time to give them another chance. During our first visit, we were fasting from meat, so we ordered...More

Fuel Cafe was an absolutely amazing find. It might not look like much at first, but once you get inside (or outside at one of the tables, if the weather is nice), you'll find yourself very comfortable. And even more importantly, you'll find that the...More
