Time Out Says

A video game-themed diner dishing up shakes, loaded fries and some of the best burgers in Melbourne

A crowd is a testament to an eatery, and you’ll find one at 3pm on a Wednesday at video game-themed burger joint 8bit. They’re used to the business here, and burgers are made to order about as quickly as you can say “Pac Man”. The burger assembler piles fillings with utmost care, stepping back for a split second to admire his ingredient tower before it’s whipped away, wrapped in pixilated paper and served upright in a cardboard container. The Double Dragon is the way to go: double the beef, double the cheese, double the bacon and double the fun. Pair it with cheese and bacon fries and a salted caramel milkshake – you'll need a Donkey Kong-sized appetite to finish it all off, but it'll be oh so worth it.
