New BBQ Restaurant Coming To Fairfield Commons Mall

Gearing Up for Construction Outside the Main Entrance of the Mall next to FUSIAN & Bravo

BEAVERCREEK - The Mall at Fairfield Commons is excited to announce that Flyby BBQ will be joining the line-up this fall of more than 130 retail, dining and entertainment options.  This addition will join the already diverse mix of restaurants at the property including BJ’s Brewhouse, Chuy’s Tex Mex, Bravo! Cucina Italiana and Spinoza’s Gourmet Pizza and Salads, FUSIAN, MacKenzie River Pizza and Melt Bar and Grilled. 

“The Mall at Fairfield Commons is excited to welcome Flyby BBQ as they expand into their first brick and mortar store” said Kristie Miller, General Manager for The Mall at Fairfield Commons. “We strive to meet shopper demand by providing dynamic national and local brands and retail concepts, as well as family-friendly dining and entertainment options all within our center. Flyby BBQ is a highly-rated hip new restaurant concept and we are lucky that they are calling Fairfield Commons home.”

David Butcher, Founder of Flyby BBQ, is a Yellow Springs HS graduate and current Ohio State Student. He was named #1 Student Entrepreneur in Central Ohio and top 25 in the United States by Entrepreneurs Organization in both2016 and 2017.  Butcher started the business in 2016 with pop-up events and catering. He then grew the team by bringing on cousin Mark Butcher along with other culinary talents and began their food truck adventure in 2017.  Harnessing a cult following and 5-star average rating online, the team used this time to perfect the dishes that would mold the menu for their upcoming restaurant. 

Flyby BBQ is known for their signature barbeque sandwiches, bowls and platters filled with tender hickory smoked meats, fresh toppings, and regional American barbeque sauces – all built by the customer in a “Chipotle” style service model. They also feature homemade comfort food sides, famous 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.”

The restaurant will be opening in the fall. If you can’t want to wait to try Flyby BBQ, they will be out touring this summer in several food truck events including those hosted by the Mall at Fairfield Commons on June 14, 21, July 7 and September 13 and 27.  To find out where else they are touring, visit their Facebook page.

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.  To learn more about Flyby BBQ, visit their website at
