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.

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.

Wife and I dined at Lin's twice in one weeks time. The first time was on Sunday afternoon and the place was packed. Parking was an issue as was the long line to get in. The service was good but food was just average. The selection is huge. Te biggest issue was the huge crowd and having to stand in... More

The rugs smell horrible and the the restrooms are always nasty. The reason I will never go back is because while me and my wife were eating when a roach was just crawling on the table. I know that all restaurants have pest but on the table???? Never again!
