Fuel is an Island-inspired kitchen and bar located in downtown Charleston SC, offering fresh and healthy food options, frozen cocktails and ice cold beer. Our menu features a variety of tacos, salads, sandwiches and bowls with locally sourced produce and seafood. Fuel is housed in an original 1950's filling station creating a casual and vibrant spot to hang. Our large outdoor patio is the ideal spot to relax, grab a bite and sip a cocktail with friends.
