We ate at the counter...the service was great ..the food was average at best. I read other reviews and it was mostly breakfast.. I would stop for breakfast. There were people waiting to get in....I don't know why?

I had the homemade hash, which was soooooo good, with home fries, and two eggs over easy which was great. Plus a side of pancakes. My only complaint is, if you want 100% maple syrup with your pancakes, it will cost you an extra seventy-five cents. Anyway, the food was top notch and the service was great. On the weekends,...

There are three hard and fast rules my husband and I have when we are in a new city: 1) We check out Trip Advisor, 2) We don't eat at the same place twice...except in rare occasions and 3) We don't eat at chain restaurants! We were shown around Portland by two old friends who live here and they took... More

When traveling, my husband and I always look for the small places the locals go to. We went to Becky's as it was recommended to us. It is exactly what you expect when you hear the word diner but still it was intimate and quaint. We got two separate plates and shared. The positives of this place were the stuffed... More

It was clear from the moment we arrived that this was a favorite of the locals. If it hasn't been on DD&D it should be in the future as this is a diner and aged. Some might say a dive. I had a #15, egg white veggie omelette w/rye toast. I found it to be good but nothing special. In... More

We stopped in for breakfast based upon reviews on TripAdvisor - what a wonderful find!! Arrived at 8:30 AM and parking was scarce- did find a spot in the adjacent parking lot, and we only had to wait a few minutes before a booth opened-up. We were welcomed by very friendly staff, and seated with fresh brewed coffee immediately. The... More

I've never warmed to Becky's Diner. When I have eaten here, my eggs are often cold and the margerine is sitting unmelted on my toast. I would rather go to IHOP. But other people love this place. My electrician, a rough burly guy, used to insist we have breakfast here before starting the workday. I asked him why Becky's all... More

There must be something special when Maine blueberries are used in the blueberry pancakes at Becky's diner. I've had bb pancakes before, but never this good!
