Great BBQ In An Unlikely Spot

Located in a two story house on East Main Rd. This is place is a hidden gem. The BBQ is great. After 20 yrs in the Navy and being stationed all over, the food rivals any BBQ out of KC, Memphis, Chicago, NC etc. The only complaint I have is that they don't have brisket or sausages a la Texas.... read more

In searching for some recommended places to visit in Newport, I came across the Rhode Island reader's choice best restaurants. The recommendation for barbecue was Becky's BBQ. It is a small place with about five tables. Many people came in for take-out. The staff was very friendly and the food delicious!!! We had the pulled pork which was wonderful. There... More

When I travel I try to find non-traditional places to eat to support and enjoy the local merchants. Driving around Newport/Middletown area I found Becky's BBQ. The owner was very friendly and the food was awesome. I often travel to southern States and this places rivals all these southern places. Great services and great food.

I go here at least once a year, I love their rib tips, it's just enough, but not too much and their pulled chicken was great my summer picnic lunch. The sides are good too. If you are in mood for barbecue I definitely recommend Becky's and the service is nice to. Not a lot of room to dine in... More

The four Baked Bean combination is great, i often will go there just to pick up a quart. The ribs are done perfectly.

I had heard a lot about Becky's and decided to get some take out from there for dinner. I was so happy I did. I ordered ribs and potato salad. Both were excellent. I couldn't decide which of the two sauces to have so they gave me both. I mixed them and the result was yummy! The prices are reasonable... More

My family is committed to finding good BBQ when we travel - and Becky's didn't disappoint. Great ribs, awesome mashed potatoes and fantastic beans. Cornbread was good, but would have been better hot. They make homemade sweet tea that could have been made down south it was so good. Unsweetened ice tea is available too, but we didn't try it.... More

We were looking for an affordable place to grab a quick lunch, and stumbled on this little joint. We were greeted by a wonderful New England accent and wonderful BBQ smells. This place is little, but the food had big bbq taste! And it is very affordable!!!

The have the best pulled pork for being in the North East. It's a must if you're staying at one of the Middletown hotels and you love BBQ. The beans are a must also. The atmosphere inside is nothing to fall in love with so just call for take out. Service is pretty fast too.

We were in Newport and decided to go to Becky's BBQ. When we entered, we were greeted by a gentleman at the register. You order at the register and he will bring the food to your table. We had one of the specials, Rib Tips, and the 1/2 rack of ribs. Both were excellent and had a nice smokey flavor.... More
