Huge Cheeseburger from Costco food court

I think it was 3.99 with fries and the size of a compact car. Anyone try yet? We had already ordered a whole pizza when I saw the sign for the cheeseburger. The woman next to me had it and told her daughters it was good. Smelled good. She had to cut it in half. Dunno if this is just a regional thing as I saw this in a Costco near Philly.

    I wouldn't mind getting a decent burger anywhere. The thing is, Costco usually has so many food samples when I shop there, the food court simply becomes an afterthought. On the fairly rare occasion when I actually eat at the food court, it's more for the satisfaction of paying so little for so much, rather than for the joy of eating the food itself.

      It must be a local thing, it doesn't exist by me in the San Francisco Bay Area.

        We have those here in the GTA. I've had it and it's good. It's a cooked burger that they reheat. It's a quality frozen patty and reheats pretty well.
        It's not gonna be your favourite burger but it'll do to satisfy a craving when you're at Costco and want a burger.

          Thanks! Reheating would be involved for sure. Those things are gigantic.

            Do they sell the pre-cooked patties or burgers in the frozen foods cases? If so, do you know the brand?

              I think they use the Kirkland Sirloin burgers. Just ask at the snack bar, they'll know.

                The ones we get at Costco are Quick-n-Eat Angus burgers. They're a staple in our house. Dinner in 10 minutes or less! Last time I was at Costco I saw frozen sliders (with buns) from the same company.

                  just tried the carne asade bake at costco in wa state. $4.10, supposedly meat, pico, guac, could only eat a few bites. reheated for breakfast and it was ok but too vineragy. can't notice any guac. bake wrap hold things together but tough. not going to repeat buy.

                    The chicken bake is FAR superior to the carne bake...which tastes like a whole lotta nothing.

                      The meatball bake wasn't too bad either. Haven't tried the asada yet.

                        I agree that the meatball bake was surprisingly tasty - made me very sad when they stopped carrying it. I do think that the carne asada wrap is better than the chicken. The carne asada has tons of delicious beef, although it would be better if the guac was cool and added last so the creaminess really came out. Neither bake is quite good enough to deter me from my hot dog with tons of toppings.

                          Really? I wasn't aware they discontinued the meatball. I'll have to try the asada now.

                            The meatball bake used to be at the food court but also for sale in six packs in the freezer section. I haven't seen it for almost a year now (in NYC),and I hadn't even considered that it might be available elsewhere. Can anyone chime in if they have recent sightings?

                            As I said, the carne asada is definitely worth trying, but if you have the gall to carry in your own bottle of hot sauce, I bet that would be a major improvement.

                              We prefer not to do food courts; usually too crowded. Instead, we bought the freezer pack here in CA. It might still be available; I haven't checked lately.
