In my opinion, Costco is the greatest retailer in the world.

It's not just the fact that they're already planning to go all organic (they already offer tons of organic products at super low prices), or the fact they still managed to thrive during a recession, or the fact that the retailer's business model relies heavily on treating their employees like human beings, and not giving top executives ridiculously extravagant salaries.

I mean, all of these things help, but the best part about Costco is the food court.

I mean, where else can you get a gigantic hot dog (with plenty of fixins') and a fountain drink for $1.50? During my super rough days, the club's food court saved my life. And you don't even need a membership to eat there.

The rest of the menu items are epic, as well. You've got a mountain of soft serve for $1.50 with options including chocolate, vanilla, swirl, and you can even add that delicious berry syrup. They've even got $5 grilled chicken salads that come with two huge chicken breasts, in case you're trying to keep things healthy.

It's always a special event whenever a new item is added to the food court, like when a few years back they debuted the brisket sandwich in some locations.

The burger's currently only being offered in select locations. Also, they seem to be prepared a bit differently, and contain different caloric values, depending on which club you're picking them up from.

People who've tried it are giving it a thumbs up.

A Redditor even uploaded Costco's previous test burger they tried out about a year ago. It was on ciabatta bread instead of the delicious-looking glazed one they've got on them now.

Here's hoping they bring these monsters to more Costco stores nationwide. The Big C has never let me down, and I have a feeling this burger is what's been missing in my life all along.
