RESTAURANT CONCEPTS

​OUR VISION

​The Sunnyside Restaurant Group houses numerous concepts that follow the same simple rule – to provide our community good food by good people committed to freshness, fellowship and friendliness.

 

Our creations are more than just a hamburger joint, pizza shop, ice cream bar, margaritas and tacos and fried chicken spot. They are places for family, friends and even strangers to unite in a common purpose – the love of good stuff in a nostalgic and fun atmosphere.

Good Stuff Eatery is all about farm fresh ingredients, chic atmosphere and hip music to get you singing out loud!

 

We serve handmade burgers, handspun shakes, hand-cut fries and farm fresh salads- American classics re-imagined.

Our Chefs make sure all guests enjoy local and organic food, cultivated by farmers and assembled by our talented staff. The Colletti Smokehouse – a hamburger made from our proprietary blend, topped with onion petals, homemade BBQ sauce, cheddar cheese and apple-wood smoked bacon is a best seller. We feature a Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake and Spike’s Village Fries sprinkled with sea salt, rosemary and thyme that are crowd favorites.

We, The Pizza is an Italian-American culinary experience featuring over 14 NY style pies by the slice, house made sodas, hand-tossed wings and Italian gelato shakes.

 

This is more than a restaurant, it’s a philosophy that is shared through delicious Sriracha Honey wings, natural spring sodas with homemade syrups and incredible pizzas.

Our dough is crafted with 100% white whole wheat flour and our sauce is velvety and full of flavor from tomatoes grown by the Pastini family. We also use creamy Fiore di Latte mozzarella cheese, fresh herbs sourced from small farms and authentic tree-to-table virgin olive oil.

We means togetherness, unity, peace and good will. We is community and family. We is belonging. We is no place or thing or idea. We is an ideal. We is the promise of better days and brighter futures and the opportunity to finally be ourselves because together, we are one.

Santa Rosa Taqueria

Legend has it that in the XVIII Century, the convent of Santa Rosa was home to twenty-nine Dominican nuns who took vows of silence to demonstrate their devotion to God. Upon the announcement that the Archbishop was to make a historical visit to the convent of Santa Rosa, they decorated their now famous kitchen in the beautiful local Talavera tile and tried to prepare a feast with the little they had. The nuns, led by Sister Andrea de la Asunción, put together spices, peppers and cocoa and created the first "mole" and slowly cooked their backyard turkey in it.

 

In this historic kitchen, considered the most beautiful of the state, two Puebla symbols emerged: Talavera tiles and mole. Today, the convent of Santa Rosa in Puebla is considered the culinary Mecca of Mexico. 

 

We have taken this magnificent story and honored it by creating Santa Rosa Taqueria – an authentic Mexican restaurant. Meats braised for hours for our Al Pastor and Pork Carnitas, char-grilled corn on the cob dipped in a tangy cream sauce and sprinkled with crumbled cheese, margaritas created by a mixologist for maximum flavors and the best chunky guacamole with fresh avocados and our special spices.

Some folks say it’s in the spices or the breading, others claim it’s the quality of our birds. Both of those things are true, but really great chicken - the stuff worth squawking about - comes from much more.

 

It’s about the experiences, conversation, handshakes and how-ya-doin’s that are served up right here in line each and every day. It’s all the friends, family and familiar faces that are ready to dive into something different – something that’s even better than chicken.

 

At bumble birds you're greeted with an outstanding Iced Tea and Lemonade Bar featuring mint, hibiscus, rosemary, lavender herbs and syrups. You bite into perfectly crispy southern fried chicken, flaky and warm biscuits, served with a variety of artisanal honeys, that take you to a grandmother’s kitchen table – chicken for the soul, worth squawking about.
