Nice smoky flavor to a half chicken. Sides of three-bean baked beans and coleslaw. The coleslaw is vinegar based and very good. The beans are excellent. I don't think of barbecue when I think of Rhode Island, but this chicken had more flavor than most I have had and no need for any clever sauces. The price was modest compared... More

Always a great meal. Love their BBQ sauce, ribs are very tender, and it is very reasonable! Bulled pork sandwich is delicious.

We travel from CT to Beckys always when the BBQ fever hits!. There is no place where like it. I love how the ribs taste so yummy even without any sauce! But the mustard sauce is incredible also! Love love love it!

The name means nothing. Becky’s BBQ proved to me you do not have to be in ‘the South’, KC or whatever to get really good BBQ. Becky’s isn’t fancy; just an old house converted to a restaurant with only seating for half-dozen--take out is apparently their specialty. I did stay in, as I was staying at a local hotel and...

We were looking for a BBQ place and definitely found one. Moved here from the deep south and found other places lacking. Becky's was delicious! Ribs, beef brisket, cornbread, smashed potatoes....yum!

Place was highly recommended and absolutely delivered. If you want that Northeastern environment this is a must. The sandwich sizes were excellent.

We were visiting Rhode Island and did not expect to find some great BBQ but THIS IS THE PLACE! The pulled pork and the cornbread were outstanding. The very busy atmosphere of customers arriving constantly was a great clue that the area really appreciates this place.

The porked pork was the best I've had and I have tried them all. Everyone in our party of 5 was pleased with their choice. Glad to find this place.
