We share it with family everytime they come to visit! No better BBQ anywhere!!! Everything is baked or cooked from scratch. Lean and juicy, smokey and sweet with just enough savory! Two sauce covered thumbs up!!

Most BBQ joints know what they are doing when it comes to the meats; however, it's the sides, cornbread and sauce that makes the difference for me. Becky's does a good job with all three. I recommend the beans and potato salad. The cornbread is slightly sweet and I liked there sweet sauce. Do make sure you say room for... More

Becky's BBQ in Middletown is an excellent spot for a delicious, home cooked lunch. We stopped in today around noon. The restaurant has a small area for seating, but many people were choosing carryout, so we were able to get a table no problem. We ordered lunch plates; I got the pulled pork with a side of mashed potatoes, while... More

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!

If you're looking for something different cheap and very tasty this is the place to go. The place looks like it's someone house and is unusual but the food is amazing and clearly popular with the locals as it was non stop take outs when we were there. Don't be put off by the look of the place it's well... More

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!
