Good food

Playa Cancun is the best Mexican restaurant in the area. The food is always delicious- their taco salads are the best I've had! Their new location is much bigger and offers outdoor seating, which is great on a summer evening. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the service is... read more

Given that you are in Bloomsburg, PA and the restaurant selection is limited it was surprising to find any Mexican restaurant at all. It has moved to Central Rd. and while it does not have a liquor license(guess hasn't paid the local official's bribes) it does serve Jarritos Mexican soda. The food given the location was very good; I'd rate... More

The food lacked flavor. Ordered enchiladas and they had no flavor.I wouldnt go back simply because when I eat Mexican I expect flavor and even some kick. It definitely lacked flavor.

This restaurant is just what Bloomsburg needed. It's located on Central Road , formally on Rt.11. The food & staff is excellent . Hopefully it will get a liquor license, a margarita would go good with my fajita . It is a child friendly restaurant.

We went here once and will try again now that they have moved. The old place was creepy. It was Friday night at 6pm which I figured would be packed house. We pulled in looking for good mexican food and drink and there wasnt a soul in the parking lot. We were barely sure they were open. We walked in... More

Spent a night at the Super 8 nearby. We like to eat Mexican when traveling and this place didn't disappoint us. It looked like a popular local place from the number of patrons. The menu was extensive and the portions were more than enough, and the prices were reasonable.

As close to authentic as possible in Bloomsburg, PA, Playa Cancun is our go-to restaurant when we want a quick, delicious meal (with left-overs) after a day of grading assignments or doing lesson plans. We are grateful to have such a great restaurant within a short drive from our home. Muchos gracias!

If you would like a touch of authentic Mexican, try Playa Cancun. Casual & relaxed atmosphere, it is also a BYOB so a money-saver. Great place for Fajitas (chicken, shrimp, beef or all three), Chimichangas, burritos. Reasonable priced.
