Carnicero Romero is a family butcher store in Little Haiti, Vice City, featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. The store sells poultry, beef and pork, along with human remains (with a brain, an arm and a human organ in the store's window).

Trivia

  • Carnicero Romero is Spanish for "Romero Butcher", as Romero is a common Spanish surname meaning "Rosemary". However, there is some mistranslation as the name should be Carnicería Romero.
    • The store is most likely named after video game developer John Romero, widely known for directing ground-breaking and, for their decade, gory and violent first person shooters, like Doom and Wolfenstein 3D.
  • It is implied that the store owners also own the Funeraria Romero business just up the road, which could be where the human body parts on display originate from. This could be highlighted as behind the funerary, there's an open grave plot with a skeleton without an arm, whereas the butcher's display has a severed arm.
  • In the PS2 version of the game, within the glass, there is a picture of Hilary Briss. Briss is a character of the BBC's League of Gentlemen. Briss is commonly known as the "Demon Butcher", as his "Special Stuff" kills off most of the town's population.
