I'd always wanted to eat at Bea's Wok'n Roll ever since spotting the Vietnamese restaurant's name while driving around DeKalb a few years back. I finally ate lunch there. The food was great. Staff was friendly and provided great service. You'll need to time your visit because seating is rather limited. My lunchmate and I each ordered an entree and... More

Bea's is one of three oldest restaurants in town and with good reason. The food is always fresh and of good quality. The Vietnamese egg rolls are excellent. The noodle dishes are very good although they have been Americanized a bit. The homemade soups are the stars here. Different soups every day, all made from scratch , all mouthwatering good.... More

Bea's is a small place. I have been coming here for over 20 years (once a year when I am in town for a conference) and Bea knows my name and what I want to order before I sit down! She is kind, attentive, and the food is all fresh and home made! Crab Rangoon are from scratch (down to... More

Bea's is quite simply a diamond in the rough. Although Bea herself is Vietnamese, the restaurant is not. It might best be described as Asian influenced, but it is truly eclectic. Bea is an amazing cook, a wonderful person who will remember your name whenever you come back, and a genuinely creative person. The first thing to know about Bea's... More

I have been eating here for years! The Shrimp rolls with peanut sauce are amazing! I also love the Crab rangoon (the spicy is quite hot so if you are a mild eater stick to the regular) and all of the noodle dishes!

Bea is the owner and prep chef. She will probably remember you after one visit. She always lets me know if she has veggie eggrolls, my favorite, even if I haven't been in for months. The meals can be made as spicy or mild as you like. The only drawback is no liquor sold. You used to be able to... More

Bea's has been a staple of the DeKalb/Sycamore community for years. I hardly ever get in there but whenever I think Asian, I think Beas. Everything is good, even the stuff you are unsure of because it is Vietnamese. All the rice and noodle dishes are great but the Crab Rangoon is wonderful. I order a 100 for a big... More

I've been eating at Bea's Wok n' Roll for close to 20 years and I've never had a bad meal! Bea makes freshly prepared authentic Vietnamese food. Her vegetables are always fresh and crisp. Her soups and daily specials are amazing. If you want to try something out of the ordinary, something uniquely DeKalb - you owe it to yourself... More
