A diamond in the rough!

Small place, very reasonable prices, nice variety,and oh yes, GREAT ribs. Certainly not a five diamond place, but if one goes for great food rather than atmosphere , this is THE place to go. Did have lunch there and while there a steady take-out trade occurred that seems to say the locals realize... read more

Becky's is tucked in the back of an ordinary home in Middletown, RI. You could miss it easily but look for the sign and maybe the barbecue truck in the front, the driveway is in the back. Once out of your car you will smell the delicious aroma of wood burning and barbecuing happening. Once inside you find a small... More

Stopped in for dinner while staying in Newport and was pleasantly surprised to find the food is really good. It is a very small place and seating is very limited but if you are looking for bbq this is perfect for take out and the prices are excellent. We will go back there for sure next time we are visiting... More

Dined at Becky's BBQ twice this summer, and both times the food was consistent. The prices are right and I never left hungry. Small diner type of restaurant inside a former residence I guess. I got the ribs both times and they were tasty and generously portioned.

I used a restaurant.com coupon for this and maybe that explains the skimpy portions. The bbq is tasty, but the portions were so small, that my husband and daughter's boyfriend left the table hungry. My husband ordered a build your own plate of 1/4 slab ribs, 2 orders of pulled beef, corn bread and 1 side. The 3 ribs were... More

On holiday from the UK and read the reviews about this place so thought we would give it ago. We loved it..we had the chicken and pork and both were so flavoursome. Only downside is that we found it on our last night as probably would have eaten there more than once!

Becky's BBQ is a small, reasonably priced bbq. The food is good, but there is very little seating. It is better to do take out. If you are interested in BBQ in the newport area, I can recommend this. However, there are many better places to eat things other than bbq. No place in the area has good "southern" BBQ

When I called in our order they were out of BBQ chicken. 20 minutes later when I picked up the order they were wheeling in a cart of about 20 freshly BBQ's chickens from the outside smoker. That's just the way they run this place and I love it. The pulled pork was good, but the pulled beef was great.... More

We came here and enjoyed every single thing we ordered. Their slaw is vinegar based, which we LOVE! Their cornbread is not too sweet. They have three different sauces--a kansas city sauce, a honey mustard and a vinegar sauce--so great. The meat was all cooked wonderfully--the chicken, which when slow cooking can tend to be dry, was great and moist.... More

Best Barbecue on Aquidneck Island, without question. Parking is tight and the dining room is small but we always get take out anyway. Pulled pork is phenomenally authentic and the sauce is absolutely mouth watering. Corn bread is also a gem.
