Good Chinese Take-out

Good quality Chinese take-out. Huge portions at fair prices. Best hot & sour soup I have tasted since moving here from upstate NY.

Ordered the general chicken and chicken lo mein as we usually do....the chicken was like cardboard and the lo mein was weird...almost sour and bitter...threw it all out. Won't be back for a while. Rather drive to Bowling Green and try China Star again. Getting too expesive not to be good. Maybe it was just a fluke but left a... More

Delicious take out food. Good menu and efficient staff. One of our favorite "go-to" stops for lunch or dinner take out.

This is the only Chinese restaurant in town. I find the food to be on par with other restaurants in larger cities. The food comes hot and tasty!

Majority of this business is take out, which it was for us. Food was typical for Chinese but around this area being available is hard to find and being this good is too. Located off Highway in the food lion strip, it's easy to find, quick in and out, reasonably priced and often the line moves fast. Worth the stop... More

Not a lot of other choices for Chinese nearby. :-( However, no matter: Lin's would still be the obvious choice. I really like them because their food seems lighter than other places: not as much residual grease. The fried rice is remarkably light and wonderful- not over oily or drenched in soy sauce. Even their fried foods (egg rolls, sweet... More

We order from here once a week. They have a very good Pupu tray and excellent 'happy family'. The spices are used to their benefit here. The food is always hot. About average in price compared to other Chinese take aways. There is also a small seating area. I just wish they'd deliver!

I do enjoy Lin's egg foo yung and my son loves their chicken wings. I have been to a few of the nearest by Chinese takeaways and this one always wins hands down. The staff is friendly and you can tell they know how to cook correctly, from the gravy to all seasonings. I am from DC so I was... More

Lin's is a basic Chinese Carryout restaurant in Ladysmith Va. It is pretty much like many of the other generic carryouts that are found in strip malls accross the country. The portions are very large and some of the choices are quite tasty. That said, it is pretty standard Americanized Chinese food. Many of the local workers stop in there... More
