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

I love Becky's BBQ, especially in the summer time. The pulled pork sandwich is delicious and they have the best baked beans I have ever eaten... and I don't even like baked beans! The corn bread is moist and they have a couple delicious sauces for the pulled pork sandwiches too. Best of RI a few years in a row.... More

Not only does it feel homey when you walk in, but it literally is a house, to which part is converted into a restaurant. The dining room is small as is the kitchen, but the smells that come out of the tiny kitchen are mouth watering. We decided to get something to go, since we had a wedding to make... More
