We just get the regular dog here in the northeast, which, imo, is not all that great (if you are used to the local brand, like Kayem).

The regular hot dog gives me strange reflux, but I rather enjoy the Italian sausage they have here.

I've noticed that some food court items are regional. In NY I've seen Italian Sausage, and also saw a bowl of chili. Those aren't on the menu in the SF Bay area Costco's.

A few years ago I discovered that they also make a Veggie Pizza even though it's not listed on the big menu board, but it did ring up on the receipt as an item in their database.

Recently my Costco installed kiosks to self order from the food court and I saw the Veggie Pizza as a standard choice there too. And there are other options, you can select different toppings for each half of the pie.

I haven't spent the time to explore all of the choices from the self order kiosk yet. Maybe there's a bunch of secret menu items like at In-N-Out Burger.

We are not here to judge. At least, that has been my impression.

Yeah, my kids are bummed about the removal of the Very Berry Sundae.

But I suspect that they use sucralose in their soft serve because I'd get a whopper of a stomach ache for two days after eating one.

Disappeared from Utah Costco a while ago. I thought this was a corporate decision for all stores.

We got a BBQ sandwich,
But i hated their soggy ass pizza until I found out you can request yours "crispy".
An added bonus is the face made by counter person when the request is made....

Good to know. I thought the pizza was terrible. Way too soggy. I would rather eat Domino's, and that's cr@p, than eat a soggy Costco pizza.

I have never seen anyone order the Sausage at Costco.
Hot dog, Chicken Salad, Pizza, Churros, Froyo, Chili, pulled pork sandwich; Yes. But NEVER. And I do mean NEVER, have I seen anyone order the Sausage. But now all of a sudden taking it off the menu is a crime against humanity.

Is this kinda like when they were killing off Twinkies? It was always there on the store shelf, but no one really buys them. But then when they were discontinuing the Twinkies. There was outrage. And hoarding. And eBay price gouging. Then they brought back the Twinkie. And now there it sits again. On the shelf. I never see anyone buying Twinkies at the supermarket or deli or 7-11.

Absolutely, several times I have talked to department and store managers, with a predictable reaction, shrug of shoulders and referral to corporate....

Either slow down the conveyor, or stick the pie back in the oven for a partial second run.
I am not sure, but it sure needs more time in the oven...

agree smiley

Been a member since the mid 80's, and probably average one PoDo every 5 years... not enough to keep 'em stocked. Mrs. Buzz is the dog lady, and scarfs a HoDo or PoDo 9 out of 10 visits, but roughly 75/25 in favor of HoDo's. Teir food courts do massive business.

I like Coke better than Pepsi but when it comes to Diet Coke vs. Diet Pepsi, I'll take Diet Pepsi. Coke Zero is better than either of the Diets.

For years, the polish sausage was my go-to meal at Costco. I agree with those who say Costco pizza sucks.

That was our favorite. But, a couple of months ago we found them in the frozen food area. MUCH smaller than the originals but very good. But, I've looked for them the last 3 times I've been to Costco and they are nowhere to be found. I presume they'll be back since they are a Kirkland brand.

Our Costco snack bar offers a large Caesar Chicken salad for $4 - it’s enough for 2 people. Very tasty if you like that sort of thing.

My method for eating the Costco pizza is to eat only the toppings. I know, but the crust is, as others have said, soggy.

I'm not a big fan of the cheese they use, either.

Yes, the caesar salad is tasty, and probably the second best deal at the food court. Lots of chicken salad, tomatoes, the creamy caesar dressing is tasty, plus a nice amount of cheese.

Out east in Allentown, the Costco there has an Italian sausage sandwich which is quite tasty, I wish we had it here.

I've only gotten the pizza at the Costco in Avon twice but didn't find the crust soggy at all. A little doughy but that's OK
Not the greatest pizza in the world but not bad either.
