8bit Burgers Footscray
Located in Footscray and about 20-25 minutes out of the city centre by train in Melbourne is 8bit – a burger joint where the burgers are named after videogames and where pixel art and a somewhat pasteup street frontage adds a particular charm to the venue. We’re in town and its their 1st birthday so we’ve popped into 8 bit for their birthday special the “megaman” and more eats.
The menu has burgers, hotdogs, sides, shakes, desserts and drinks and covers the whole americana “range” for this sort of eats well. 8 bit’s birthday means there’s queues out the door today.
Very busy today as they celebrate their birthday. Queues out the door and people everywhere. 8bit’s got a nice open kitchen where you can sit and watch the team assemble your food (if you can score a seat at the counter that is).

GOLDEN AXE Crispy fried chicken, Cheese, Sriracha mayo, Slaw. $9.50 Their Golden Axe comes in under a tenner with juicy chunks of chicken in it – the slaw in it is lightly sauced and refreshing.
8 Bit Birthday Burger Special : Megaman – triple patty, triple cheese, waffle fries, bacon. Its quite the burger. There’s so much in there – a real beast of a burger but it works as their patties are thinner and rested well.
