In this episode of Fine Dining: The Search for the Most Mediocre Restaurant in America:

Part 1: Marisa Pinson & Jon Glover from On Brand with Jon & Marisa join Michael at the Costco Food Court this week and talk all things, from how many hot dogs we could fit in our mouths to the churro that was just replaced by a cookie

○ How to survive the Costco parking lot

○ Hear the humble beginnings of Costco's Food Court as a hot dog cart in San Diego
