For slow cooked meat over a fire in New England, this place in Middletown is were it's at. The baked beans and corn bread are over the top.

Our first impression was a good one. The manager introduced himself, asked us if we where ever there before and seated us with menu's and explained it. Food was served promptly and tasted great. He checked on us a couple of times and thanked us before we left. Great time, we will return.

The food was excellent. I had the pulled beef and my wife had the half rack of ribs. The meat was nice and tender and the smoke ring on the ribs was nice and thick. The sides were definitely fresh and reminded me of good home made dishes. We definitely will be going back!

There are other rib places in the area...but this is by far the best! Fully smoked ribs, pulled pork and delicious sides (mashed potato, bean bake and cole slaw, which is a vinegar slaw not mayo, are fabulous) and better still homemade sauces. It's fun to sit and try all the sauces...the mustard sauce has a little kick, but the... More

The service was good as it was ready within minutes after I ordered the meal. The food was ok but being from the South it was as good as the BBQ that I am accustomed to. I would eat here again if I was in the mood for BBQ and didn't feel like cooking it myself.

You'd think you stepped into a portal into the deep South. Why would such incredible BBQ be in Newport RI??? the ribs are smoked to perfection, the pulled pork was finely chopped and seasoned mildly (I think lots of people have misconceptions of BBQ being spicy and saucy ground beef) and you could add your own taste for the three...

Stopped here for takeout to take back to hotel after my daughter saw sign. My daughter enjoyed her chicken and the ribs that I had we're the best I've had outside of Texas. Becky's three bean side dish is out of this world.

Had read about Beckys BBQ and stopped for a bite for dinner on my way back from Newport. Right across from the Christmas Tree Plaza it's easy to miss as it is in a single family house with very limited parking and seating. Meals options vary from sandwiches, lunch, dinner to pick an option. I opted for 1/4 slab ribs,... More

First, let me say how bummed I am that I have not discovered this place sooner in my 5.5 years of being a Rhode Islander! I was very satisfied with this place. You walk in and walk right up to the counter and they have a menu there or a stack of them so you can pick out what you... More
