Such a popular eatery. After all its just a place to eat...but what a place. If you have the time to queue...then enjoy. If not there are lots of other great spots!

Places like Becky's where travelers (and people who live there) can get reasonably priced, high quality regional food with genuinely friendly service are very hard to find in our fast food world (Becky's is pretty speedy, but slow enough so you are sure it's been cooked to order). We stopped in for breakfast. The special was Corned Beef Hash Eggs... More

Managed to eat here twice duing a 24 hr visit to Portland. Lots of great food options around but, once I had the blueberry pancake, couldn't wait to return. Also,best hash ever. Ate at less crowded times so no wait and friendly service.

This is such a great place to eat. I had breakfast and my wife had the haddock sandwich. It has a classic diner feel, nothing fancy, just good food and large portions at a good price.

You are likely to encounter a short to long wait but breakfast is very good and a good value. My daughter was disappointed that they don't offer waffles but did say later that "this was the best chocolate chip pan cake" she had ever had. Our omelettes were great and the coffee, very smooth. And the fruit bowl was full... More

After having our fill of lobster rolls and craving a diner grilled cheese, we happened on Becky's Diner. It is about a 5-10 min walk from the touristy area and is frequented by the locals. What great food and atmosphere.... It's a real down-home diner! The food is classic and delicious, and the service was far better than the pricey... More

I've been here several times and the food is always high quality. The price is right and there is only a wait during peak hours. I really wish the service was better. There are a couple of servers at Becky's that ruin the experience by making me feel like I my decision to come to breakfast is a terrible inconvenience... More

The true measure for me is if a breakfast place has home made hash or canned. The homemade hash was excellent. I will say that their operation was very efficient. The place was full and we only had to wait 10 minutes to be seated. There were several people in front of us. As soon as someone left the next... More
