SLEEPY HOLLOW, N.Y. – Some Sleepy Hollow residents are saying the village now has everything you need with its new option for authentic Mexican fare.
“For us it is fresh and local, there’s no need to leave the ZIP code,” said Sleepy Hollow resident Tanya Moniere. “They make the perfect burrito.”
Walter Escobar, co-owner of Tijuana Mexican Grill at 84 Beekman Ave., says business has been “amazing” since the restaurant opened about a month ago.
“Everyone in town and the customers are so nice,” said Escobar. “We haven’t had a single complaint and we already have regulars!”
Tijuana Mexican Grill is a take-out establishment with two counters and a few tables for seating. They serve specialty dishes like the Mama Juana Torta, Tacos Gringos or the Tijuana Salad Bowl, a crispy tortilla bowl grilled with chicken, Romaine lettuce, avocado, peppers, cheese, cilantro and topped with Tijuana salsa for $8.95.
Patrons can also create an original Mexican masterpiece by building your own tortas, burritos, bowls, salads, nachos, quesadillas, tostadas and tacos.
There is a choice of ground chorizo, steak strips, roasted vegetables, ground beef, pan-seared vegetables, tacos al pastor, carnitas or grilled chicken as a base and then include add-ins like rice, cheese, guacamole and more. The restaurant also has a kid-friendly menu.
Tijuana Mexican Grill is a family-owned restaurant that started with a Mount Kisco location in September 2013 opened by Nolvin Ventura, a Bedford Hills resident and Fox Lane High School graduate, and his uncle Jimmy Ventura. The Venturas co-own the Sleepy Hollow location with Escobar, who is a cousin.

“It’s a big community of both Latin and American people, and there is no Tex-Mex food,” said Ventura. “We’ve been thinking about moving here for a while.
Ventura was pleased to see the community turn out, including the mayor, for the Sleepy Hollow restaurant’s grand opening on Nov. 2.
“Everyone is so friendly,” said Ventura. “It’s a great community.”
Tijuana Mexican Grill also gives back to its community by offering local students discounts. They are open Monday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and can be reached at 914-909-2057.
