11 Regional Items You Can Only Find at Specific Costco Food Courts

These regional Costco food court items are only located at select warehouses around the world.

Costco might be famous for its deals, but it’s equally well-known for its food court. There’s the famous Costco hot dog and soda deal for $1.50, a slice of pizza for $1.99 and the chicken bakes (filled with chicken, cheese, bacon and Caesar dressing).

Yes, these iconic menu items thrive in Costco food courts. Not every Costco food court has the same food, though! This is what’s on the food court menu at Costco locations around the globe.

Chicken Strips

Costco food courts in Canada have chicken strips that come piled on top of a heap of crispy french fries. You can also find this item in select Costco locations in France!
