Had to bribe but this BBQ place comes complete with sweet tea and cornbread. Reasonably priced and fast the dine-in option is served quickly on paper plates. To go orders are packaged and out the door in minutes. If you have had your fill of chowder, take a quick trip to the South for ab delightful change of pace.

Here in Newport, RI for a month and a return was a must for some excellent pulled pork BBQ sandwich. Here you get that northern old town true house shop appeal and park in the back lot. The sandwich was on point for 8pm at night. Can't go wrong at all! I'm sure to be back a few times in... More

Top of the line ribs and all the fixings. You get what you pay for at Becky's. One of the best non-chain operations I've ever been to. Bob the owner is a personal friend, has got the right idea with this place, not too big, with just the right touch.

The staff is very nice. It is a walk up counter, order your food, pay for it and they bring it to you. Frankly, I think most of their business is take-out. I had smoked ribs that were excellent along with a cole-slaw and corn niblets.

I love their ribs along with a choice of two different BBQ sauces. There is a small dine in area but I always get my order to go.

Becky's is a very small but very good authentic BBQ. My favorite is the pulled pork. Staff is helpful and friendly. Great for take out or catering a summer party.

Small restaurant (six tables!) that does a huge takeout business. Ribs were amazing! There were three sauces on the table and the guy at the counter that delivered our food took the time to explain each. Prices were very reasonable.
