If you’re not at Costco for the great shopping deals, you’re there for the food court.
And we’re not judging you. The menu items may be your typical concession stand grub—hot dogs, pizza, sausages—but for some reason, they’re way tastier probably should be. Hot food sold at a big box store automatically lends itself to pretty low expectations, so anything edible with a bit of flavor would satisfy hungry shoppers. Costco’s food court? Cheap and surprisingly delicious.
One of their most famous menu items is the chicken bake, the object of an inexplicable cult following. It looks like a cross between a stromboli and an oversized mozzarella stick, but it’s what's inside that really matters: chicken, Caesar salad dressing, bacon bits, and tons of cheese. More importantly, they’re not to be confused with Costco’s other equally famous poultry. Find out everything you need to know about Costco’s $4.99 rotisserie chickens .
Costco also sells frozen chicken bakes that you can make at home, but according to former Costco employee and Reddit user ricecracker420 , those are nothing compared to the ones at the food court. The user also revealed the secret recipe for real food court chicken bakes.
There you have it! Now you can indulge in Costco’s chicken bakes even when you’re not out on a shopping trip. That’s not the only insider tip from the superstore giant. Check out these 15 secrets Costco employees aren’t telling you .
