I went there for lunch in something of a hurry between appointments. I was quite impressed. Much better than the standard Asian buffet and probably the best in El Paso. Great choices especially seafood items and dessert.

Lin’s used to be above average when compared to other Chinese buffet restaurants in the area. Lately they have become just as good as their typical competitors. The food is still good but be careful about entrees that dry out on their trays due to...More

We try to eat here once a week. The selection is great and goes way beyond Chinese food. They even have a full-time chef on a Mongolian grill who will also prepare custom sushi. The new manager has even made it better with additional choices....More

We ended up paying double because of a Mexican Holiday? What's next Chinese, German,...etc. be aware they up there prices as they see fit. Ask before you purchase. What a way to rip people off.

First, they don't have phone orders for carryout. The buffet selection was terrible. Not a variety of choices. Tried the coconut shrimp, WAY to sweet! The peel and eat shrimp was old and had been out too long. Staff was not all that friendly.

Not typical for a Lin's, the food is very bland. The sweet & sour sauce is very thin, egg drop soup has no flavor, nothing either of us ate had much flavor. The pepper steak is made with Jalapenos. Now I know why the sign...More

Have eaten here a few times. Service is mixed, but generally good for a buffet. Wide selection of Chinese and other foods with a Mongolian BBQ. A good place to go when hungry- but the clientele has been a bit rude, and it can be...More
