Many of you are probably Costco Warehouse members already, or even better yet, Executive Members! Some of you might be on the fence about joining Costco, although, that just sounds crazy to me… Why wouldn’t you want to be a Costco Member??? Anyways, I digress, besides the wonderful deals on quality, bulk items, a well laid-out and lit warehouse, and employees that are well-paid and ready to serve, there is the Costco Food Court. The
coup d’etat coup de grâce of Costco Warehouse is the Food Court, and I want to share with you the Top 3 Reasons to Eat at the Costco Food Court.
(Click through for the list.)
Obviously, the reasons are in no particular order… except I always save the best for last!
REASON 1: Shopping Can Really Wear You Out!
There are so many great deals on so many great items at Costco, and they constantly have new things and new deals to look at and samples to try! That really wears me out sometimes, and all I need or want at the end of a Costco Warehouse run is to sit down and relax for a few minutes with a delicious treat that isn’t breaking the bank. Seriously, what other food court or food joint gives you such great food and doesn’t charge more than $5 for almost every item?? Not many, and the ones that do are probably places you should stray away from in the quality food department… Jack-in-the-Box Tacos anyone? The first four ingredients are: beef, water, TVP (textured vegetable protein, ie., fake meat), and defatted soy grits. I don’t know about you, I like grits, but I don’t know what the heck “defatted soy grits” is and I don’t want to find out…
REASON 2: Time Is Money and Money Is Time
Face it, we rarely have time to do all the things we want with the few hours we have during the day, and any chance we get to use that time efficiently is a “W” in the Win Column. So why would you not take advantage of having an affordable, quality food option that is readily available after your shopping trip? I don’t know, beats me, you’re probably already taking advantage of it anyways, so you can just ignore this! Kudos to those of you who know a good thing when you see it! Pizza, Chicken Bake, HOT DOGS, yogurt desserts, salads, they have it all! Well, all the choices you’d ever want to have, right?? Plus, a little soft drink to top off the tank and get you going for your next stop! Count me in!
REASON 3: The Costco Hotdog
Honestly, did you think I would list anything else? Or were you just waiting for this one!? I know I wait for a Costco Hot Dog every time! Besides all the other great options (heck, even the Caesar Salad is great!) at great prices, the Costco Hotdog reigns supreme. For only a buck fifty (in the States of course) you get your choice of a Polish dog or an all-beef frankfurter and a proportional hotdog bun (with sesame seeds for crying out loud!) and you just can’t shake a stick at that. Plus your choice of all the condiments! Relish, fresh onions, deli mustard, regular mustard, and ketchup! My wife thinks I’m crazy when I go for the ketchup, sometimes it’s nice to get nostalgic about what I topped my dogs with when I was younger.
