Battle Creek residents really showed up for this one! As a foodie myself, one of my favorite go-to resources for fine local fares are local Facebook groups. While scrolling through "The Carryout Club", a local group that formed out of necessity during the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, a user asked:

A friend is coming in from out of town & wants to know where to get the biggest & best wet burrito in town. Where should I suggest?
