I recently moved to the area, and have been really craving good Mexican food. Well, this place didn't help matters. I came out of the restaurant still longing for authentic Mexican cuisine. After reading the reviews on tripadvisor, it is very clear that the reviewers have never experienced real, authentic, Mexican fare. I'll be sticking to my own kitchen from... More

Playa Cancun has what I believe to be the best Mexican food in Bloomsburg. I've never had a bad meal there and the service is always good and fast.

Positives - Very good service, easy to find from I-80, acceptable though unremarkable food (salsa mediocre, chips are fresh.). Negatives - dark, slightly rundown decor/atmosphere, bathrooms rate a C- at best.
