Costco Burger vs In-Out Burger

Published on July 9, 2017 by

Which is better, Costco’s new Cheeseburger, or a Double Double from In-N-Out burger? Costco is testing a new Cheeseburger at select food court locations. I wanted to find out how the Costco burger compares to what I consider to be the best burger, In-N-Out Burger. In this video I review the Costco Burger, and contrast and compare between the new Costco Cheeseburger and a Double Double from In-N-Out Burger. —EXPAND DESCRIPTION FOR MORE—

The new Costco Burger costs $4.99 and is composed of 1/3 of organic beef, romaine lettuce, tomato, smoked Thousand Island dressing, cheddar cheese, on a “Chicago Style” bun. Also note, the beef patties are cooked in the pizza oven and not grilled like a typical burger patty. Costco reports they will be rolling out the burger to additional locations by March 2018. Some news outlets have dubbed the Costco Burger as a “Shake Shack” style burger, I don’t think it really even comes close to Shack Shack.

Compare that to the Double Double from In-N-Out burger which sells for $3.75 and is composed of two beef patties, two cheese slices, lettuce, tomato, onions (grilled or sliced), and “spread” aka, Thousand Island Dressing.

The verdict: The Costco burger is “good” — but the In-N-Out Burger Double Double is better tasting, and a better value. I think the hotdog and the pizza at Costco are also a better value than the burger. Compared to a $1.50 hotdog and $2 pizza slice, the $5 Costco Burger is quite expensive for a Costco Food Court item.
