Yvette Helberg, Helberg Barbecue

Faith, Family & Barbecue

Yvette Helberg wears many hats. One month after the Helberg Barbecue trailer opened in April 2018, Yvette became pregnant with her son, Wayne. Having just graduated from Biola University a semester early, she never would have guessed she would own a restaurant whose food made the cover of the November 2020 Wacoan’s “Best of Waco: food & entertainment 2020” edition. While pregnant, Yvette worked in the Helberg’s barbecue food trailer, then she moved the restaurant into its permanent building in Woodway right after becoming a new mom. Today you’ll find her taking orders, cutting meat or hollering burger orders to the kitchen. However, that’s only the part of her role that is seen. She’s also the bookkeeper, payroll department, catering manager and of course, mom.
