Costco Is Reopening Its Food Courts, But You’ll Have to Order Pizza and Hot Dogs to Go

Costco's legendary $1.50 hot dog deal is calling our name.

Have you missed Costco’s $1.50 hot dog and soda deal? How about a $1.99 slice of Costco pizza? Well, we’re all in luck, because the warehouse club is reopening its food courts for takeout!

Don’t forget—you’ll need a Costco membership to eat in the food court.

What Does This Mean for Costco Shoppers?

While most stores have been slowly getting back to business as usual, nothing happens overnight. Costco reopening its food court is just a baby step and it won’t be exactly like it was in pre-pandemic days anytime soon.

Instagram account @thecostcoconnoisseur posted a sign showing Costco’s new food court offerings and the list is pretty slimmed down: hot dogs, soda and pepperoni and cheese pizzas whole or by the slice. You’ll also have to take food to go, because seating areas aren’t open for the time being.

 It looks like if you want Caesar salads or chicken bakes, you’ll have to wait a bit longer. (Unless you know the secret recipe for Costco’s chicken bakes, that is!)

Costco Takes Safety Seriously

We’re living in a different world right now. Due to the global pandemic, Costco changed its store policies to require face masks for all shoppers, put a hold on its famous free samples and announced a limit on the sale of meat products, meaning each customer can only buy three packages of poultry, pork, fish or beef at a time.

The warehouse store has also implemented senior shopping hours. Costco has been opening select warehouses to members 60 years or older, or those with disabilities, from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., Monday through Friday. The store also urges customers to remember social distancing rules, even while wearing a face mask. You can find the updated Costco COVID-19 guidelines here.
