Bang Bite Filling Station is right out of Jon Favreau's hit film Chef. Chef/owner Enrique Guerrero, a man with an impressive culinary CV, traded his chef's coat for a tee-shirt. He's cooking up some really good grub in his bright orange movable kitchen parked at the busy intersection of Old Santa Fe Trail and Paseo de Peralta. People line up to order and then either take their lunches with them or, in warmer weather, eat at one of the picnic tables under festive red umbrellas. Fare runs from big burgers (there are at least 10 different ones offered), to sandwiches ('sammies') and 'Things with Cheese' including grilled mac & cheese. There are also daily specials. His perfectly fried potatoes are contenders for the title of 'best in town.' In colder weather, there are some hardy offerings on menu including black bean chile with turkey and local favorite: green chile stew.

- Lunch: "Call your order in ahead. Bang Bite can get busy, especially in warmer weather. When you arrive, your lunch will be waiting for you when you get there. It's good to do this, especially if you have a large order."
- Best for Lunch Because: Bang Bite has one of the best green chile cheeseburgers in town as well as top-notch fries in addition to a variety of other offerings.
