About Us


Since winning the River Oaks Care Center Annual Rib Cook-Off in 2005 for his spare ribs, Mackie Hayes has thought about cooking for a living. In February 2006 he put those thoughts to motion and began his mobile barbecue business. Today, Above Average BBQ and more has grown beyond mobile to a cozy downtown restaurant on 7th street between Lamar and Scott. Come by today and enjoy a full selection of food guaranteed to delight.


  • I just wanted to say that my family will come back as often as we can. I think Mackie is the best at BBQ and hope that he stays around for a very long time. thanks.

  • Above Average BBQ And More is, in my mind, the best in town... hands down! The wait staff was the friendliest in Wichita Falls and surrounding areas. I would recommend Above Average BBQ And More to anyone!
