Best time for free samples is afternoon, after shopping get a Hot Dog and or slice of pizza. Cheapest lunch around
Good food. Crazy busy though
I honestly come here for the hot dogs up front more then anything else.
Skip Hilo Hattie's. If you're visiting, this is the place to stock up on macadamia nuts, Kona coffee and cotton Hawaiian shirts.
Sure, it may be crowded all the time. But that speaks volumes. Go in and get the stuff you need and want in copious quantities.
Great place to buy everything you need to cook ☺ plus get some hotdog combo for your snack before shopping!
If you get hungry while shopping (and the indoor samples aren't enough), their outdoor snack bar has inexpensive food: pizza slices, hot dogs, soft serve ice cream, and of course, the chicken bake!
If you're brave enough to shop on a weekend, be prepared — it's going to be busy here!
Great place to pick up meats and cheese and wine
Their large pizza is a bargain!! Less than $11 for their large at 16".
Only one with gelato in the food court
AND DON'T MISS THE FRESH POKE EITHER!!
DO NOT MISS THE PISTACHIO ICE CREAM AT THE FOOD COURT!!
Sundays are crazy!
Gelato!!! Is amazing
Go early or closer to closing, less people.
Try their new Beef Brisket Sandwich from the food court....yummy!
Packed even at 1 pm. Park further away and forget about fighting for parking.
This is the busiest Costco I've ever been to. Apparently, it's the busiest in their system.
They have edible ice
Their pharmacy is generally less expensive (even after your insurance kicks in) so they're worth a try.
Always gotta have the polish dog and soda combo.
The optical dept will clean & adjust your glasses at no charge. See Curtis, friendly guy!
Pepsi is now served here in place of Coke. As someone who likes Pepsi over Coke, this is awesome.
Got to try the gelato !! Also great buy on board shorts. Water is expensive. Only place to get Monaloa chocolate covered macadamia nuts.
Close to the airport so you can gas up the rental car and save about 0.30/gal.
I always buy my ribeye steaks here. Don't bother with the premium steaks in the blue tray. Just pick out well marbled regular steak. It will save you lots of money.
The rotisserie chicken is really people!!!
Bring your parka if u plan to enter the fresh produce area. Brrr!
Shop after 7 pm to avoid cart mayhem.
Biggest parking stalls on the island
Poke is fresh. Poke bowl is a must!
Their food court has ice cream, which is pretty cool. $1.50 for a 3 scoop cone.
Do not come here on the weekend unless you want to have awkward situations running in to your co-workers :)
If you are a member, they provide the best deal on gas for your personal or rental car. Check out gasbuddy.com for updates. I saved $.40/compared to other stations. Worth the drive.
Sat and Sun they close at 6 pm
Lots of hot kane on Friday afternoons...
Pick up a cart in the parking lot and give it a test drive. If it's junk you can pick up another cart at the door.
Avoid crazy shoppers, or as I like to call them, everyone that shops at Costco. They will bump you/get in your space/run you over.
Get the take and bake pizza. Better than most retail pizza!
Don't come on a Saturday afternoon its crazy there was a line to leave.
Mixed Berry gelato is much better than the pistachio.
Parking may be overwhelming but lots of registers so lines are fast. go early as it opens at 10.
FREE samples.. Shoots!
Your stop for hot dogs to sneak into the Regal Cinema.
Get the gelato, $1.50 for 3 scoops. Fabulous!
3 scoops of fresh gelato for 1.50! Pistachio, berry or vanilla
If you're buying a whole pizza, they allow you to go halves on the toppings. Just let 'em know. ;-)
Healthy summer snacking tip! Stock up on organic frozen fruits at Costo for a great cool snack by itself or blended for a cool summer drink!
Three scoop gelatos for $1.50, awesome deal!
