Best BBQ around. The pulled pork is amazing, but I've had similar quality in North Carolina and just about anywhere throughout the south. Becky's really takes the championship with the 3-bean bake...best ever I've never had a bad meal. They are awesome to pickup food for a gathering or last minute potluck. They cater and they offer a small dine-in... More

Southern style BBQ done right. Menu includes beef, pork and chicken with lots of choices for sides. Small inside and has takeout. Price is very good so it's an excellent value. Order at the counter or at the table. Several types of sauce to add yourself is on the tables.

Becky's is my go to place for a bit of a dietary splurge, Father's day, birthday, if my family asks where I'd like to go, I choose Becky's. I often get the Pulled pork/rib combo with their 3-bean smoked beans and cornbread. The dine in capacity is limited but forget the ambiance and focus! You're here for the BBQ and... More

Becky's is a very small restaurant, but don't let that stop you. The food is very good for BBQ. It is some of the best brisket I have eaten. It has a light smoked flavor and the marinade is delicious. The food is priced appropriately for the portion sizing.

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....

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
