Butcher started the business in 2016 with pop-up events and catering. Shortly after, the team began their food truck adventure. Harnessing a great following and 5-star average rating online, Flyby BBQ used this time to perfect the dishes that would mold the menu for their upcoming restaurant. “We are excited to be part of the growing Beavercreek community and give them a taste of what barbecue can be. It’s truly unlike anything you’ve seen before.” said David Butcher, Owner of Flyby BBQ. To show their continuing loyalty to the community, Flyby BBQ will host fundraising nights where 25% of the food sales will be given back to local organizations. Visit or contact their team at 937-637-3001 to find out how your organization can get involved.

Flyby BBQ is a fast casual “build-your-own” barbecue restaurant featuring smoked meals with fresh premium ingredients in a fun and modern setting. They also feature homemade comfort food sides, famous peanut butter banana pudding, as well as craft beer and sodas. Their menu is sure to have something for everyone as they also offer vegan Pulled BBQ Jackfruit as a protein option. As Butcher put it, they serve “real smoke, real ingredients, real fast.” Looking to cater a small business meeting or large family for the night? Consider picking up a “Party Pack” and take the guess-work out of trying to feed up to 30 people. They also do special event BBQ sandwich bar catering for parties over 30 people. The full menu can be found on their website at with online ordering coming shortly after opening.

The restaurant is located outside of the mall’s main entrance next to FUSIAN and will offer several delicious ways to enjoy your favorite backyard fare. They will be open daily from 10:45 am – 10:00 pm. To learn more about Flyby BBQ, visit their website at or follow their social media @FlybyBBQ.
