    I came across this on YouTube. I'm not sure what Costco is, but people really eat this?

    $9 for a gigantic pizza that's as good as your average pizza joint? You're damn right people eat it.

    They don't have Costco in your area? They also have a soda and a hot dog for $1.50. A single slice of pizza is $3

    Okay, I researched that. Their pies are are 18" which is standard. I know by looking at that video that they are far below average (but I don't know what average is in CA).

    This thread has inspired me.
    I'm going to Marco's, a great small family owned Italian restaurant in Wimberley, Tx.
    Best pizza I ever had, anywhere!

    Other than the mechanized bits, that looks no different than any pizza joint I've worked at or observed.

    Not sure how you can tell the quality of the ingredients or the end product from what you see in that video. Costco's isn't the best pizza in the world, but it's really not bad, particularly for how cheap it is.

    It's bad because no one threw the dough in the air.

    I love Costco. I can't understand why people are hatin' on it. Nobody's forcing anyone to go there.

    What's the difference between a guitar player and a Costco pizza?

    The pizza can feed a family of four.

    (It's a joke.)

    Costco is great value for your money if you but the right things. I will say, customer service there is second to none, they will stand behind what they sell and make it right if you have a problem...and no, I don't work there, just a satisfied customer :)

    I recently bought a giant cooler, the kind it takes two full grown men to carry. I bought it at Sam's Club. The first time we used it, the plastic on one latch snapped in half. We used it once more that year, and it worked okay with one latch. We took it camping the next year (third use) and the other latch snapped, rendering it useless. I initially brought it back to Costco, since I make most of my larger purchases there, and assumed that is where I had bought it. They spent about 35 minutes trying to verify my purchase, as they were fully willing to give me a full refund for it. They couldn't verify it, of course, because they had never carried that particular brand of cooler, and I had purchased it elsewhere :). So I took it back to Sam's Club. Talk about a customer service nightmare...I ended up having to get a little nasty to get them to issue store credit..."We can't return it without a receipt" "It has been more than 30 days, we don't do returns after 30 days..." etc. All this over a product that clearly showed up as purchased from them on my account...

    When all was said and done, the customer service rep said "My manager said go ahead and give him store credit, but let him know it won't happen again..." I told her don't worry...I'll be spending my money at Costco, where they stand behind their products...

    At least there's no hairy guys in shorts making the pizza.

    That should make some members here happy...

    :confused:

    The pizza is mediocre. Cheap ingredients. I guess you are getting what you pay for it. And don't get me started on their hot dogs. I've had a hot dog at the store and burped for hours afterwards. What the heck do they put in them?

    It's not meant to be boutique. It's as good as any cheap pizza I've had and better than alot less cheap.
