Later in 1996 she along with Tommy Lee, her sister Lini, and brothers Tommy V. and Michael established Dai-Tung in McAllen, it is now succeeded by her niece Lu Yen. With hard work and determination, Tommy Lee and Linda established various restaurants along the RGV, including Tai-Tung and Dai Tung in Sharyland-Mission. Their newest establishment, Papa Lee of Pharr, was created in partnership with their son Ton Tu and draws inspiration from Tommy Lee's martial arts and experience in Hong Kong cinema. Linda has spent the last 30 years in the Rio Grande Valley, nurturing the taste buds of native RGVers, introducing them to authentic Chinese and Chaoshan cuisine.
