Greasy is a polite description of the main courses. Vegetable selection was sparse, and those available were tasteless. The peach cobbler raised the rating from 0 to 1. Given any choice, choose anther restaurant!

Lots of crab legs for the buffet and assorted Chinese items, some Hispanic items and lots of fruits and deserts. All was good, excepting the sushi. However, my Japanese SO did not care for the undercooked rice.

I have eaten at other Lin's Chinese buffets, and I have always loved them. This one is a disappointment. I sampled several things, and I found that my favorite items, which happened to be the fried dishes like sesame chicken, General Tsao's - pretty much anything fried - were badly overcooked and chewy to eat. Other things that are not... More

The crab legs were over steamed and cold by the time they refilled the pan. Mac n cheese was cold and actually much of the food was not kept warm enough. The only thing that was half decent was the food off the grill. You can select the meat and veggies to be cooked.

I am very picky about Chinese food. The food was edible but I wouldn't say the best. The price was high some of the dishes were cold. But I have noticed that at a lot of other Chinese buffets as well.

We had never been here before, always go to the same place. We decided try something different and we are so happy we did! We found our own new gem in Albuquerque!

I entered Lin's and was greeted promptly. They ask me what I would like to drink and then I paid up front before I was seated. The restaurant looks appealing but you can see that management needs to address many simple issues like cleaning glass panels, repairing chairs, and some overall detail issues. The buffet offers a wide variety of... More

Cold, rubbery, stale, and over-priced for the selection.....canned fruit, sticky serving spoons, greasy and tasteless. Don't waste your money.
