Aviator Smokehouse BBQ (Fuquay-Varina) - Anyone been?
We checked it out for the first time last weekend and thought it was good. They do a hushpuppy app that has bits of pork blended in, which is a great idea, but the pork wasn't really noticeable. (When you've spent the better part of the afternoon in their taproom, though, it really doesn't matter.) The ribs were fine -- probably better than most other restaurant ribs I've had around here, although that isn't saying much. My wife had a burger, which she enjoyed.
We'll definitely go there again, as we'd like to try some of the other offerings. I don't know that I would drive out to Fuquay for the smokehouse, but I will drive there for the beer, and the addition of food makes it that much better. I prefer the atmosphere of the taproom, and they'll bring the food across the street to you if you call for takeout.
