After a creepy and disappointing dinner at playa cancun down the street, we complained to our neighbor who recommended Terrapins. She said "they have maragaritas there and they are delicious, i should have told you PC doesnt have alcohol." Uh yeah, you think. Either way, the atmosphere is great here. Not a complaint at all for me. The complaint comes... More

I went once and the place was gorgeous.  The server was not to knowledgeable other than the Mexican food is an American variation from Colorado.  My husband and i are big fans of Mexican food.  But this by far is very different even compared to Mexican food even in Colorado. The burrito with carne asada is what i had ordered... More

Since our favorite Mexican restaurant had I fire we wanted a good mex meal. Not here the food was bland mushy and dissatisfing. The price was high for what you got I had gotten the enchilada with chicken it was nasty and the rice concoction the served was a mush of vegetables and pepper. I will not be returning here

Same stuff, same atmosphere, same service. At least they're consistent! Nice enough place, but the bar seems to be the focus here.

This is a nice little place on rte 11 in bloomsburg. They have a decent selection of beer, which is especially nice if you are going takeout on a Sunday, thanks to PA's archaic liquor laws. Staff is friendly, service is quick, the menu has variety, the food above average, portions fair sized, and the prices affordable. Worth a visit.... More

Lot of good choices to make. Also has American food on the menu for people who are not a fan but want to spend time with friends.

This was an average dinner. The food is not genuine Mexican. It isn't bad, but we will probably never go back. The Mexican in Selinsgrove is much better.

A great little place along route 11. I like to make a night of it with their home made chips, sangria and some guacamole
