These new Goodyear restaurants sell wings, waffles, pizza and tacos – The Arizona Republic

Goodyear has experienced a lot of recent growth — and alongside that comes new restaurants to feed and fuel residents, workers and visitors. The Phoenix suburb grew by 46% to a population of 95,000, making it the biggest city in the southwest Valley, according to the 2020 U.S. Census.
State 48 Road House is planning to expand into Goodyear with what will become the brewery’s largest Valley location, spanning four acres, The Arizona Republic reported. While that opening is still a ways away, there are several new restaurants open now.
Here are some exciting new restaurants to try now in Goodyear, plus a few that are opening soon.
“It’s hard to find a crazy awesome wing, but I think I’ve struck gold out in Goodyear,” wrote Arizona Republic dining critic Andi Berlin. Owner Mike Choi has achieved the perfect texture for his wings with a combination of crunch and just enough juicy meat, she described.
Crazy Mike’s, which has outposts in Glendale and Goodyear, offers a variety of sauces and dry rubs, from Thai sweet chile to spicy curry. Along with wings, the menu features fried shumai, waffle fries and beignets.
