The food truck-turned storefront specializes in two things: pie and biscuits. While the pie list is streamlined (four to five slices a day, that's it), the biscuit menu is much bigger, with biscuit sandwiches, biscuits drowning in gravy and biscuits piled with eggs and chorizo, among other iterations. The ambiance is a little more charming than the food, because while the picnic tables and blue and white checkered papers atop faux paper plates are ideal for Instagramming, the dry biscuits leave something to be desired. Pie's the way to go, and if you need caffeinating, the iced coffee is dispensed via tap.

Bang Bang's pies are truly amazing—they're key lime is a religious experience. But if you're going there for a meal, you're going to want to eat the biscuits. The menu is small, and everything is amazing.
I LOVE Bang Bang. The biscuits are the fluffiest (I love the Farmers' Biscuit), but sometimes I just get an extra side biscuit because I can't get enough (and then I can't move, but hey). Sitting outside is positively delightful in summer. And obviously their daily baked pies are the bomb. Also, this is some of the nicest service I have had anywhere in Chicago. It's an easy stop just a short walk from the California Blue Line.
It doesn't get much cuter than pie at Bang Bang. And hey, their food menu isn't too shabby either. Be sure to come prepared to wait in line for a seat when the patio isn't open. Even so, the food is well worth it.
One of the best biscuits in the city, dense yet fluffy and served with fresh butter and jam on their own or with a variety of toppings. Their pie flavors can be hit or miss but still usually a safe bet for something delicious and sweet. Their lemonade, with a variety of fruity flavors, is the perfect way to cool down during the summer while enjoying their adorable backyard garden.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, their pies are great, but the dense buttery biscuits at Bang Bang will probably change your life and likely your overall health. While the weekend lines here are a pain, their backyard Pie Garden is as precious as it sounds and worth the wait.
