Lin's is walking distance from the hotel my husband and I always stay at. The buffet is $11.95 per person plus drink. They do have PLENTY to choose from and I would say that it is 50% good, 50% bad. If you go here enough you stick to your favorite dishes. I prefer their ribs and chicken yakatori. They also... More

This is a very poor quality Chinese buffet. I don't understand it, but they do a great business. For Chinese, it is mediocre at best. The food on the bar never tastes fresh , even when they first put it out. Most of the food on the bar was cold (well, actually it was lukewarm). Egg rolls are greasy and... More

This buffet has a lot of options, more than you can taste, in a family oriented restaurant. Staff its average. Very clean place place, well decorated and maintained. Except restrooms they need attention. Food has a good quality, an the look invites you to taste all of them. They have good flavors, but it depends on you. The grill it's... More

Not the best of the best but not the worse either. Various selection for adults and children. The bbq grill in the back is their best asset from making customized cooked noodles, steak, or sushi rolls (leave a tip hint hint). One of the best family oriented places to eat in Laredo. Love coming here. Price is what it's worth.... More

Lins has a great buffet, with a large assortment of dishes, all are fair to good. The only bad experience with the food is that their steam tables must not be operating properly as some of the dishes were only warm which made the dish taste terrible. Staff is friendly and service is excellent. Overall, if you are looking for... More

If you are travelling to Laredo and wish to eat oriental food, this is the place to come. Lins is a huge buffet with all types of food from Orient. Our kids do not like oriental food, but there was a huge isle with hot dogs, pizza, etc. so we did not have to go anywhere else to find food... More

When we went the place was dirty. There was several flies and we saw a bug on the floor. The food was ok..it looked and tasted like if it had been sitting there for a while. I guess that is why they make you pay before you even get a chance to sit down lol

If you're looking for Asian fare, go someplace else. This buffet style restaurant is what Taco Bell is to Mexican food.
