The Chimichangas At This North Carolina Restaurant Are So Gigantic They Fall Off The Plate
The best Chimichangas to be found on possibly the entire planet come from a hole in the wall right here in North Carolina and, once you’ve seen them, you’re bound to start craving one of your own.

Now that you've had the best Chimichanga on the planet, you can work your way through the other menu items that also fall off the plate (they're so big), like the gigantic burritos.
Don't let the outside fool ya, and don't mistake where to enter, either. You'll want to go in the small door with the red window at the top and located just to the left of the telephone pole in the photo below. Trust us: the Chimichangas are just
