The Costco Hot Dog... aka Lunch for $3

  • Sep 29, 2010

It's tough to find issue with the Costco Hot Dog. For $1.50, you get your choice of a hot dog or a polish sausage as well as a fountain drink. I generally tend to go with one of each (even though I really can't tell the difference between the two).

For $3 I get two good size hot dogs and two drinks. You can donate your extra cup to someone else in line who is only going for a slice of pizza, so it makes you feel good about giving to others as well. As for toppings, I apply a line of deli mustard and then load the hot dog up with diced onions from the onion crank (I LOVE the Costco onion crank. I wish they sold THAT in the store). You need to make sure you put the mustard on first, as it acts as the glue to keep the onions from falling off.

A little known secret is that you can also ask for a cup of sauerkraut when you order your hot dog -- and it's free. Seriously! It's $1.50! How can you go wrong?

Mmmmmmm. LUV me some Costco lunch. My arteries are full from their cheese pizza slices, too, but, every now and then, I pick up a dog.

If I could give the Costco hot dog a plus-10, I would. In fact, I enjoy just reading about them. Nice review.

Oh, fo 'sho. The only reason I add deli mustard is for onion glue. I'm actually pretty paranoid about my onion not sticking, so I generally douse my Polish sausage in it. Plus ketchup to be sure.  You're hardcore for eating two in one sitting.  Just one fills me up.

What a great review! I love the costco dogs.. maybe you should do a review on the pizza! I was in Cabo along time ago and was on my way from the airport to my hotel. All my friends and I had gone down there for spring break. On our way to the hotel we were all so excited to get to the beach to get the party started but noticed a costco on the drive in. We had to stop and buy costco dogs! But of course we had to get the drinks to. Point of my story is they are just as good around the world as they are here...consistency at it's finest!

I love a Costco dog once in a while. One of my favorite treats when I'm biking is to stop at Costco and pig out on a Costco dog with lots of mustard and relish, and a churro. It's a cheap and yummy lunch. Great review!

My last Costco hot dog was like eating rubber. I wish I had known about the sauerkraut to add flavor and interest.

Great review. I had no idea about the cup of kraut on the side. I'm not a very adventurous hot dog eater, and ten to stick to one or two condiments tops, but I'll have to throw things for a loop next trip.
