Bang Bang Pie and Biscuits

Bang Bang Pie Shop

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.

I live a few doors down from this gem, so I'm here a lot. I've never been disappointed with my food; everything is great. Always recommend a slice of pie of course; the chicken pot pie is another favorite. The service is incredibly friendly, which is welcome. Biscuits are divine. My favorite thing is the spacious and eclectic patio, which is the perfect spot to enjoy a slice of pie on a hot summer day. I sometimes bring my laptop and work here too.

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.

What an awesome and simple concept for a counter service cafe. Very friendly and helpful staff, as well as very good simple food.


Their menu changes seasonally which is a big plus for me. Using what is in season is something that restaurants should do more often, so more people are exposed to the highest quality of food. I had the Avocado biscuit which was much bigger than anticipated! Delicious crushed avocado, pickled fresno chilis, micro cilantro, quest fresco, and mole seasoning. It was the perfect refreshing lunch on a sunny cinco de mayo! 


To finish it off, I had a slice of their special pie, which was Horchata Pie. Excellent taste and texture, perfectly sweetened, and a nice flaky crust. All topped with real whipped cream and dusted with cinnamon. A+

Absolutely delicious! Went for lunch and ordered a grilled cheese with tomato soup, was the perfect combo for a rainy chilly day. Their menu is ever changing so you'll never know what fresh homemade goodies will be on the menu. One thing is for sure, the delicious biscuits and jam will always hit the spot. Snagging a spot to sit inside took a bit of time, but was worth the short wait. I'm looking forward to full time patio weather season to come back and enjoy the big back patio area.

The cutest little breakfast spot in Logan Square! The place is small, so make sure to get there early on the weekends or you will face a line out the door. That being said, the etiquette here seems to be enjoy your meal and move along to make room for others, although I've never felt rushed by the friendly and attentive staff!

On to the food: the menu for spring is absolutely delicious. Coffee and creme pie - to die for. The biscuit with vegetarian gravy is perfect comfort food and even better topped with an egg. The avocado biscuit was tasty, although the generous spread of avocado somewhat overwhelmed the already dense biscuit. Can't wait to return to enjoy more pie on their adorable back patio!

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.

The backyard space here is one of the cutest spots in Logan Square, perfect for an afternoon spent eating pie and drinking iced coffee.
