Our Costco here in Brick, Nj doesn't have Polish either,but we do have Italian sausage on rolls with peppers and onions. Does anyone else have that ,too? Maybe it's a regional issue???

    I was in the Costco here once. I thought they just had hot dogs, but considering our population they probably had pablum, too.

      The Louisville store has "hot dogs" that are advertised on the placards as Kirkland All-Beef. They also advertise in the store for 'Polish Dogs' , no further description, on the menu card.  These are not retail in the store (as far as I can find) but only served at the snack bar for the $1.50 " Dog & Drink Special"

        My store sells them retail, labled as Kirkland 1/4lb plus all beef dogs, can't remember if they sell the polish too, but they do have them at the snack bar.

          I would hate to depend on Costco for  consistency of a set menu. They are very limited in all areas. My wife went there yesterday to pick up a few things for our vending operation, they were out of a few popular brands of Candy bars and don't even carry most brands. I can't see how anyone, other than a small Mom and Pop operation or hot dog cart could even deal with them......PNWC
           
          Chewy, I got the Black Angus cows in the pasture yesterday, I had to put a lock on the gates, it's like storing gold.........

            Marina del Rey Costo serves Hebrew National Hot Dogs and Polish Dogs along with their chicken rolls and pizza.
             
            Everything they sell to eat on the outside other than the drinks are available on the inside for purchase.

              I didn't know they allowed anything Polish into Marina del Rey.

                Did you actually buy cows? Or maybe steers?

                  I bought a 600lb Steer and a 500 lb Heifer,,,,,,,,,The steer is long and will throw a nice long Prime rib, I will process him at about 1400lbs. The Heifer will run smaller, I hope to get her up to about 1150.......I process them USDA, so I can use the meat in my Cafe, I should get about 800lbs of hamburger.............

                    Really? I was part of buying the State Fair steer in Wisconsin for years...Bob Gold. he sold the meat for a HUGE premium. But kept some for himself. If you can afford that meat for your cafe, then you are amazing, and we all should be flocking to your place.

                      You should get a real good yield from both. I notice lots of places featuring the angus these days, not the least of them being McDonald's.

                          Al, stuffed clams are made with minced or ground up clams. Clams Casino is made with whole clams topped with breadcrumbs, bacon and other stuff.

                           
                          AKA "Clams Oreganata" where I grew up on Long Island.

                            Hi Ann, I will get about 56 cases of 4-1 patty's, 200 lb of bulk used for Meatloaf and all other ground beef needs, Top and bottom round that we carve for Roast beef dinners, hot beef sands and French dips, any other cuts that could be used for Tips, stroganoff, Oriental beef stir fry's, Fajitas, carne Asada and so on. I was telling Chewingthefat today that we will have 16 to 20 piglets next month, and I'm thinking about raising 6 to 8 of those for the cafe. I like the idea of giving my client Beef and pork raised by my company, it just sounds right.....

                                Back to Coctco dog. Was there this morning, and by coincidence, Brick Costco just switched over to Kirkland dogs at the concession stand. They still sell Hebrew National...and Nathans...and(ugh) Ball Park...and in the summer, we're lucky enough to get Large Thumanns!!! Umbrellas now say Kirkland hot dogs...so I guess it's permanent. Next trip will try them. Now I.too, am curious who makes them!!!!!

                                  Nope. They're different. For one thing, clams oreganata, unlike clams casino,  requires oregano. For another, clams oreganata doesn't have bacon.

                                      I love Hebrew National from Costco, I bought a package of the Kirkland, had two split and grilled on my flat top, I thought they were suprisingly good, actually right up there with the H N.

                                          Michael, I don't know if you remember, or even were involved in private clubs/ bars around the Bridgeport area. On the Eastside of Bpt every Nationality had their own private club, The Polish Club, Ukrainian club, and so on. During the summer they would have club picnics, one of the more popular items was having grilled Liver, bacon and onion sandwiches on a good rye bread. The liver was sliced real thin and cooked in the bacon fat, they then added the bacon and grilled onions to build the sandwich, this was a melt in your mouth sandwich. There was nothing like eating those sandwiches, drinking beer and shooting craps all day long...............

                                            The only club in Bridgeport with which I was familiar was the Algonquin Club, and that wasn't ethnic at all. But those sandwiches sure sound fantastic.

                                              Not as good as a grilled Kirkland Hot Dog!

                                                    I think Chewy thinks the Kirkland dogs are made from the Tenderloin area.......

                                                        The absolute finest liver and onions I've ever had was at -- of all places -- a Holiday Inn restaurant in either Grand Haven or South Haven, Michigan -- I can never get them straight. It seems that Holiday Inn was owned by a restauranteur from Detroit who wouldn't allow less than the best.
                                                         
                                                        But, the next finest I've ever had is served at the two Cap City Fine Diners in Columbus and Gahanna. They use Provimi veal liver, and their sauce (rather than gravy) is beyond superb. The carmelized onions are exquisite, as are the mashed potatoes. In fact, the liver, onions, sauce and potatoes are so deliciously ambrosial that the currently correct "crisp" broccoli and carrots served with the liver can be excused, or, as I prefer, ignored.

                                                          If they don't have Liver & Onions on the menu, it ain't a Diner! Absolute requirement if they profess to be a true Diner!
