Costco is the holy grail of bulk buying, the cathedral of wholesale. But it’s not all about 10-pound jars of peanut butter.
A stop at Costco’s humble food court – after walking miles around the cavernous warehouse – is a shameless reward for buying enough extra paper towels to fill your entire car trunk.
The food court is simple yet esteemed by Costco diehards. Amazingly, it’s one of the biggest pizza chains in the US, and nationwide it sells roughly 100 million hot dogs a year, at extremely low prices.
After several readers expressed their regard for Costco’s hot dogs and pizza, we took a trip to the retail giant’s Brooklyn location in March to discover all its revered food-court glories – and it totally exceeded our expectations.
