This is a gem in our small community. The food is always excellent. My family has never found a bad thing on the menu. My only gripe if there is one to have is that they don't deliver.

Stopped here on my way to Washington D.C.. My initial impression was that this restaurant is like Panda Express. I tried Lo-Mein here. I have tried the same dish at Panda a lot of times. I thought the same dish at Lin's Gourmet was way tastier. The food was made to order and they also allowed customization. The quantity was... More

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!

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

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
