Stopped by recently for an early dinner. Based on previous Tripadvisor reviews, this place sounded like a solid choice. Frankly, it exceeded my expectations. The pulled pork was TREMENDOUS. The ribs were succulent. Unfortunately, they were out of brisket. I would highly recommend the side dishes. Each and every one of them was AMAZING!!!! But, I was surprised they didn't... More

When relatives stopped by on their way back to Philadelphia from the Cape, we ordered takeout dinner from Becky's. It was a great move. Everyone loved the food. We ordered the Dinner for 8 ($60) which came with 2 quarts of fabulous pulled pork and two sauces, plus cornbread and four sides of our choice. The coleslaw has a vinegar... More

Sometimes we just don't feel like cooking , and Becky's is at the top of our take-out list! High quality meats , great tasting beans and delicious and moist cornbread. We have tried BBQ in several states and Becky's competes very well. Since they are so close to the beaches this is a great lunch on the beach option. Also,... More

Every year when in Newport I must get my bbq fix. This is the best I've had short of Corky's in Nashville.

Our family of 4 went here for dinner after a day of sightseeing in Newport. I had read about Becky's on Trip Advisor, and we weren't steered wrong! When you pull up it looks like a house and you go around back to park in a small lot, but don't let the looks deter you. You can smell the smoke... More

The food was really good. We had brisket which was extremely tasty. I had slaw and my wife had potato salad. Both were good especially the potato salad. The place is very small and I thought the portions were on the small side. We will be back.

I ordered ribs with smashed potatoes, coleslaw, and cornbread. Husband ordered beef brisket and the same sides. Ribs were tender and delicious without sauce, though there were 2 sauce options available in squeeze bottles on the table. We also each ordered a slice of cheesecake to go! I'm still full, so I only took a small taste, and it was... More

The place was tiny. Had a steady stream of customers. I thought the pulled pork sandwich was delicious. Both of their sauces were very tasty. Wish they sold bottles to take home. The corn bread was yummy too. Prices were extremely reasonable.

Small but cute place with great smokey taste. They do everything onsite. The sides are great and all at a reasonable price.
