If you're a fan of the Costco Food Court hot dog, be sure to check out the Sam's Club Food Court too – we think it may be the winner!
Who Has a Better Hot Dog Combo – Costco or Sam's Club?
We all know that Costco and Sam's Club both offer delicious and affordable selections on their Food Court Menus, like huge pizzas that'll feed a crowd, delicious frozen yogurt, ginormous beef hot dogs, and more.
However – is one food court “better” than the other??
Since both warehouses offer super affordable all-beef hot dog combos that are raved about by their members…let's take a closer look to see just how the two warehouses compare here!
First, the Costco Hot Dog + Drink Combo has been the same $1.50 price since the 1980s and, according to the Costco CFO, it will likely stay that price “forever.” However, Sam's Club recently lowered the price on their similar All Beef Frank + Drink Combo, making it a pretty good contender.
Plus, the new, lower price is here to stay! 🎉
But does it taste as good as Costco's famous dog?
After learning that Sam's Club lowered the price on their GIANT Hot Dog Combo (seems like lowering prices is a rare occurrence anywhere these days?), we thought it would be fun to do a taste test. 🙂
SO, my friend Shannon headed to both Costco and Sam's Club to see which All-Beef 1/4-lb. Hot Dog really tasted better and which combo was the best bang for your buck…keep reading to see what she thought!

SO…Which One is Better?
My friend Shannon's husband tested out both of the hot dogs and said that the Sam's Club hot dog is the clear winner – he says it's SO yummy and juicy with lots of flavor! Plus, it's an overall better value, too!
Not only do you get a bigger drink ✔️, more condiments to choose from✔️, and a slightly better drink selection at the food court✔️, you're also saving a few cents along the way. Sounds like a win to me! 😍
