After just recently moving back to Lubbock, we have not been able to find a good Chinese food/buffet. We still have not. This place from the outside looked promising. Nice looking building, next to lots of shopping. Across from the mall. I mean where could...More

As a business man I travel around North America. Dragon buffet is one of the best between Houston and LA. There are so many different choices. Most important is that almost every food is so fresh and tasty. I love it. I strongly recommend it.

Just another Chinese buffet. Nothing outstanding. It wasn't very busy when we were there, but there was still a nice selection.

Must pay before getting your food. I was a little put off for having to pay in advance to my meal but after I got past that part, the food tasted good, there was a good selection and overall it was a good value.

I'm not a big fan of buffets, but I'm okay with them as long as they're clean. This place was not. If you pay attention to the KCBD food for thought segment where they list restaurants' health code violations, Lin's is a usual suspect on...More

When Lin's opened it was very good. Over the last several years I have noticed a definite decline in the food quality. The plus side is all you can eat.
