While shopping at America's favorite wholesale chain hasn't felt "normal" in a while, times are quickly changing. Only a few weeks ago, Costco dropped its mask requirement for customers who are fully vaccinated. There's still a limited menu at the food court, but there soon may be a place for diners to sit and eat . . . inside. (Related: 108 Most Popular Sodas Ranked by How Toxic They Are.)

Costco's Bringing Back Fan-Favorite Food Court Menu Items

  Costco's Bringing Back Fan-Favorite Food Court Menu Items Costco fans, you might want to sit down for this news: The wholesale retailer is not only adding seating back to its food courts as restrictions are lifted, but Costco’s also adding a handful of fan-favorite items back to its menu. And we, for one, couldn’t be more pumped. According to CNN, Costco’s menu is re-expanding to include ice cream, smoothies, and churros to the food court menu — joining Costco’s famed hot dogs and pizzas, which remained on the menu as to-go fare. The chicken bake also made its triumphant return this past fall.

However, One Reddit user recently spotted the iconic red and white picnic tables near the food court at their local warehouse in Arizona. Indeed, the photo shows tables inside!

The original poster, @AEG84, says there are roughly eight tables, but pre-pandemic there were about five times that amount. No one else following the thread says indoor seating is available in their neck of the woods yet, but another food court staple is at last.

"Churros were finally back at mine!" another user says. "No tables, though."

That's right—churros disappeared when a limited menu was put into place after the pandemic hit. A few months later, news dropped that Costco was upgrading them. Members are finally trying the leveled-up cinnamony and sugary treats and sharing their reviews . . . which aren't always positive.

Costco food courts are making a comeback — slowly but surely

"They're one of the things we're known for."In an interview with CNN Wednesday, Costco's Chief Financial Officer Richard Galanti confirmed the store's food courts are indeed set to make a comeback and said he believes they will eventually return to normal operations.

If you ask any true Costco food court fan, they'll tell you it really won't feel like life is back to normal until the pizza combo returns. "GIVE US COMBO PIZZA," someone else says.
