Cafe Face Off
If there's one thing Costco is known for — besides $5 rotisserie chickens — it's the hot dog combo. The cafe at the front of the store has been selling the hot dog combo for $1.50 since 1985, and has no plans to change that. The loss leader is so popular that Sam's Club, too, sells the combo for the same price. In fact, the two store's cafe menus mirror each other almost exactly. Which one has better buns, and which one has a can't-miss dessert? I went to both — and ate a lot — to find out.
