A multi-roomed bar and dance hall, Roman’s has been serving drinks and bar food near the intersection of Yuma Road and Cotton Lane in Goodyear since 1986. Quirks abound at this honky-tonk, which is run these days by founder Roman Comer’s daughter, Myra Curtis. Its slogan used to be, “Just look for the big rooster” — a nod to a recognizable chicken that’s among the many lawn and roof ornaments outside the bar — but has since graduated to, “Just look for the big cock,” now the official motto. There is also a tree that is literally growing up out of the kitchen. The cash-only tavern is filled to the brim with neon beer signs, photos of past patrons, and vintage road signs. In addition to cold beer and heavy pours, Roman’s offers hot dishes like burgers, wings, and tacos. On weekends, expect lots of loud music, either in the form of karaoke, DJ sets, or live country-western bands.
