I will never eat at Lin's again after seeing their health inspections. This restaurant consistently earns an average of 11-12 CRITICAL violations PER inspection. It's a matter of public record...check for yourself. Lubbock has much better options available for Chinese food.

The food was pretty good and they definitely have a lot of variety which is nice. It didn't look very nice inside though. It wasn't necessarily dirty, it just looked old and not well kept.

Absolutely huge buffet. Getting fresh food depends on how busy they are and what time you get there. The entryway makes you think it's nicer than it is. The staff is sub par. Typical Chinese buffet

We couldn't believe how big this buffet was. There were four long steam tables filled with food, and plenty of room around them to maneuver. They have all the usual entrees that one would expect at an Asian buffet, like Kung Pao chicken, sauteed green...More

This place is awesome. I've been there twice over the past 2 years and I like it. Fresh sushi, good chinese food, and a serve yourself ice cream bar. What else could you ask for.
