Costco (Food) to Go

Recommended Posts

I couldn't find a discussion about the Costco food courts so I thought I would start one.

The Costco "food court" is the counter where you can buy their hot dogs & soda, pizza by the slice, BBQ pulled pork sandwiches, etc. Sometimes the food court is inside the Costco (like here in Bakersfield, CA) and sometimes it's outside (like with the Santee, CA, Costco).

 

Here's an article on a new Costco food court item that is being tested and is quickly becoming popular:

"People are driving far and wide to try the new Costco food court cheeseburger"

Quote

Foodbeast broke the story about Costco’s new 1/3 pound burger, which costs $4.99 and adds up to 1,140 calories.
The cheeseburger features coarsely ground beef, cheddar cheese, and smoked Thousand Island dressing, served on a challah bun.

The smoked Thousand Island Dressing intrigues me. It makes me wonder which ingredient in the dressing carries the smoke, or if they just add liquid smoke to it.

Has anyone is the testing areas tried this new cheeseburger? 

 

I'm a huge fan of their BBQ Pulled Pork sandwich (big enough for two people to share).

My mom always stops by for their hot dog with sauerkraut (when she remembers to take the sauerkraut! She keeps forgetting it when she places it on the counter while she pours her soda to go. "Next time, put it in your cart, Ma, so you won't forget it!). xD 

 

Any other Costco food court favorites out there?

Poutine!

 

Not the best poutine out there, of course, and a bit on the overly salty side - but still, hooray for cheap Costco poutine!

 

(Most people here are probably familiar with poutine, but if one has never had it - it's a Quebecois-Canadian dish of french fries topped with brown gravy and cheese curds.)

Where I need an infusion of protein I go for the chicken bake.

I like the berry smoothie, it's reasonably priced and not too big. Summers are really hot here and this is a convenient way to not get too overheated and dehydrated. (plus, it probably has vitamins and fiber)
